After a embarrassing performance in a Game 3 loss on Sunday, the New York Rangers played with a chip on their shoulder Tuesday night, and now their series against the Montreal Canadiens is even. Jesper Fast and Rick Nash each scored, goalie Henrik Lundqvist made 23 saves and the Rangers beat the Canadiens 2-1.
The guys were playing on their toes,” Rangers defenseman Ryan McDonagh said. “They wanted to compete, wanted to battle and wanted the puck on their sticks.”
New York’s win also ended a six-game losing streak at home in the playoffs going back to the 2015 Eastern Conference Final.
