Rangers finally win playoff game at MSG, beat Habs to tie series
Goaltender Carey Price had just left the ice for an extra skater, and there was Shea Weber at the blue line, loading the cannon for a one-timer from such a great distance that Rangers goaltender Henrik Lundqvist would have plenty of time to react to it.
Lundqvist said it was an odd feeling when Weber launched his rocket.
While the shots on goal were 12-9 for the Canadiens after the first, with the exception of the last 4-5 minutes, NY was the better team in period one. It was a good-looking hard hit, from a team that looked like it was going to struggle to cross the 10-shot threshold. "There is no secret, he has one of the hardest shots in the league and there's not many guys from the blue line who can beat you when you see it". I didn't quite get set on the post the way I wanted to. It's a good shot. "We need more - it's as simple as that". Zack Kassian opened the scoring 42 seconds into the second period and Connor McDavid notched his first career playoff goal midway through the third.
After limping to 21 shots in Game 3 and 17 shots in the third period and overtime of Game 2, the Rangers poured 32 shots on Price in Game 4.
Nash restored the lead with his second goal of the series at 4:28 of the second period. We had to chip pucks out. "We got the job done".

When Jesper Fast scored at 11:39 of the first to give the Rangers a 1-0 lead, it represented the team's first 5-on-5 goal in a home playoff game in 374:04, going back to before the losing streak started in Game 1 of the 2015 conference final against Tampa Bay.

The second period was nearly a replica of that of game one when the Rangers tilted the ice and generated more chances and kept the Canadiens in their own zone for much of the period. Mitchell moved the puck to Weber, who passed back to Mitchell for the tap-in goal that made it 1-1.
"The team that just worries about the next shot is the team that normally ends up on top", Pacioretty said. "Good season or not so good season individually, it's a fresh start, and that goes for the team as well". "There were a couple of chances where we got pucks to the net and the rebounds were sitting there, and we have to dig a little deeper to come up with those second chances". He argues decision-making occurs in a loop and by processing that loop faster than your opponent, you can effectively cut them off and get ahead.
Jake Guentzel added a goal and an assist to help the defending Stanley Cup champions take a 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven series.
Montreal outshot the Rangers 45-30 in regulation time and 58-38 overall.
"The second period, I think we had a poor outing". "We played well enough to win".
NOTES: The Canadiens scratched D Nikita Nesterov for the second straight game.
In Game 4, it's the Rangers now that will need to adjust to Montreal's pushback or face an elimination game on the road on Thursday. The Rangers made two lineup changes.
