New York Rangers Look to Even the Score Against Montreal

And now their series against Montreal is even.

"The guys were playing on their toes", Rangers defenseman Ryan McDonagh said.

"When we're playing well, we're good in our (structure)", Miller said. "It's no secret we've been really disappointed with the way things have been going at home the past two years here in the playoffs, so we needed this win for this series, but also moving forward".

Carey Price stopped 30 of 32 shots for the Canadiens, who received their lone goal from Torey Mitchell.

But now it's on the Rangers to show that they're still in the series, that they do have something left in the tank. But it's just one game. "You have to give that team credit, they played well tonight".

The Rangers were 17 seconds away from leaving Montreal with a 2-0 series lead, nearly entirely due to the play of Henrik Lundqvist.

Trailing 3-2 in the third period, the Canadiens pressed hard and finally scored with 18 seconds left, with goalie Carey Price pulled, as Tomas Plekanec redirected a Radulov feed past Henrik Lundqvist to force overtime. "They're going to come out hard again so we have to play the same way but with more effort and play good as a team". It felt like we earned this one.

Pavelski scored on a pair of deflections, including one just 15 seconds into the game for the fastest playoff goal in team history, the previously dormant power play scored four times and San Jose held Connor McDavid off the score sheet for the second straight game.

The Rangers' best chance early came when Oscar Lindberg's shot beat Price but rang off the right post about 6 1/2 minutes into the first period.

Montreal broke through when, off a faceoff to Lundqvist's right, Lehkonen got a pass from Brendan Gallagher and fired the puck over Lundqvist's left shoulder with 2:23 left in the period for his first career postseason goal. NY should come out strong early, but eventually that will fade and the Canadiens will get back to playing the better hockey in the last two periods. Alexander Radulov started the play by winning a puck battle in the neutral zone and triggering a 2-on-1 with Mitchell and Shea Weber. The Rangers also had six players on the ice, but the fact that the play wasn't blown dead just sums up how this series has been officiated.

"When these two teams met in the playoffs in 2014 â€" the Rangers won that series 4-2 â€" NY won two of three games at the Bell Centre.

"I thought Alex had a real good game", Julien said to Sportsnet.

"The second period, I think we had a poor outing". "In the second and third period we tried, but we weren't able to find the back of the net".

"We had to", said Rick Nash, who scored the game victor at the 4:28 mark of the second period.

That they did as Lundqvist's counterpart, Carey Price (30 saves), was almost as good but still the second-best goalie with the Rangers creating more havoc around his crease.

It looks like Nick Holden is returning to the lineup tonight. Joel Edmundson scored the first St. Louis after netting the overtime tally in Game 1.

So if the Rangers want to turn the page on their regular-season struggles at home, it will start with the back end turning the page on the struggles it had in Game 2. Zack Kassian and Connor McDavid each scored short-handed goals to help tie the series. If maturity means having been around long enough to get in position to keep a puck in one end, and to recognize when a goalie is committing one way so as to go the other, that's even better.
