Woe Canada! Rangers destroy Habs, 7-2, in Montreal

A House of Horrors no longer. Instead, it was a Bell Centre Beatdown. The Rangers came out on Saturday afternoon and opened the Eastern Conference finals by putting an absolute hammering on the Canadiens, taking a 7-2 win in Game 1 that quieted the 21,273 in the Bell Centre along with all of the Blueshirts’ disastrous history in this building. That includes goalie Henrik Lundqvist...

Prust thinks Kreider ran Price “accidentally on purpose”

The Habs aren’t happy with Chris Kreider, who may have injured Carey Price in game one after he barreled into him on a breakaway. Brandon Prust thinks his former teammate did it on purpose: “We’re in the NHL. He should know how to fall. We will call it accidentally on purpose” Okay, Brandon. This play is going to fall under the guidance of everyone’s personal team bias...

New York Rangers Put Up 7 In Game 1

The Eastern Conference Finals got underway on Saturday afternoon and the New York Rangers came out guns blazing. They scored early and often against the Montreal Canadiens with the final score being 7-2.

Montréal Canadiens must find answer for New York Rangers speed

The bad news for the Montréal Canadiens is that they were flat-out embarrassed on home-ice to open The Eastern Conference Final of the Stanley Cup playoffs by the New York Rangers 7-2.On to the good news: This was only one game in a best-of-seven series, and even the most casual hockey observer would be able to point out the problem. Everybody playing hockey with the Montréal...

Rangers goalie Lundqvist not bothered by Bell Centre

Sitting in a locker stall Thursday, New York Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist jumped out of the line of fire for the first time in the 2014 Stanley Cup Playoffs, sidestepping a question about his history at Bell Centre in Montreal.

The (Carey) Price is wrong, *****! Rangers take game one

After game one, Canadiens forward Rene Bourque said: “we got our asses kicked”. I can confirm, that the Canadiens did in fact get their collective asses kicked in a 7-2 curb stomping at the Bell Centre on Saturday afternoon. Martin St. Louis kicked off the scoring and Rick Nash (finally!) finished it. When all was said and done, the Rangers put up a touchdown to open game one...

Eastern Conference Finals Game One: Conquering the Montreal demons

For the second time in three seasons, the Rangers will play for the Eastern Conference crown.

Two Comparable Teams

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post, Lundqvist enters this confrontation at the top of his game, on the ice and as a teammate.
