Canadiens coach defends Pacioretty, shrugs off hit on Price

Rangers top Canadiens 2-1; series tied 2-2

Rangers top Canadiens 2-1; series tied 2-2

And because of that, and despite Glass being one of the team's best forwards in the series' first three games, the 33-year-old veteran knows he's likely to stay out - at least for the time being. In fact, Nash's seven scoring chances on net have produced more goals than the Canadiens' 35 chances on net between its top-five chance generators. "He's a defenseman that you don't like playing against, and that's the part I think we missed with him not being in our lineup".

Montreal Canadiens' Andrei Markov (79) watches as New York Rangers' Rick Nash (61) trips over goalie Carey Price (31) during the first period of an NHL hockey game of Game 4 of an NHL hockey first-round playoff series Tuesday, April 18, 2017, in New York.

Let's ignore for a moment that Pacioretty has a 58.54 per cent Corsi in this series, and that while he's on the ice the Canadiens have outshot the Rangers 46-22. Of course, we can say the same about Zibanejad, Stepan, Hayes, Miller and Vesey, each of whom hasn't scored and other than Vesey, has yet to really show up, but getting Kreider going would be a huge boost for the team. "You got to have kind of controlled emotions", Nash said. He was going hard to the net.

Pacioretty has been held down so far this series with just one point in the four games, but he has had 19 shots.

Henrik Lundqvist has had a tremendous start to these playoffs, unlike last years' postseason where the Rangers were beaten in five games in round one. "In the second and third period we tried, but we weren't able to find the back of the net".

He has answered those criticisms himself many times in his career, pointing out that his biggest strength is his shot, and the front of the net is the one place you're guaranteed to have your stick tied up, but it seemingly falls on deaf ears the next time a mini-slump comes around.

Jake Lemoda, president of the Uniform Fire Officers Association, extended his condolences to Tolley's family and co-workers. Visibly emotional, Commissioner Nigro said Tolley leaves behind a wife and an 8-year-old daughter.

He wasn't made available to the media on Wednesday, but Julien leapt to his captain's defence.

"He's a good player and whether you guys don't think he's done enough, for me internally, I think he's done a lot and he's got an opportunity to be better", Julien said. We've got to do a better job of sticking with it, sticking with the system, and trusting it when you're down.

"That's how I handle things". There's no panic in Max's game. His shutout in Game 1 sent an early message, and another win here would give NY a shot to clinch at home in Game 6.

After finally breaking through with a strong performance at home, the New York Rangers have their sights set on maintaining that effort where they've been more comfortable all season long: on the road. The line shake up (Kreider-Zibanejad-Buchnevich, Vesey-Stepan-Nash, Miller-Hayes-Zuccarello and Grabner-Lindberg-Fast) provided NY better overall speed and aided in the improved forecheck, which was a large component in the victory. In the playoffs, the two players have combined for four of New York's eight goals.

Note: Montreal defenceman Alexei Emelin is moving closer to a return after missing four with an undisclosed injury. That said, the Montreal faithful should be out in full force as there is a possibility that this will be last home game for their team this season.
