NHL Live In-Play Markets: Canadiens vs Rangers Third MeetingPublished January 29, 2015 by Sol FH
The Montreal Canadiens vs the New York Ranger at Madison Square Garden tonight at 00:00 (UK).
Tonight will be the third meeting between the Canadiens and the Rangers this season. They split the first two games and both teams are eager to get an edge on the other tonight. The Canadiens won the first game 3-1 and the Rangers took the second, beating the Habs 5-0 giving Henrik Lundqvist his fourth shutout (he now has five for second place in the NHL). The Rangers are at home tonight, which will give them an outright advantage, but don’t count the Canadiens out just yet.
The Canadiens have won three straight and are 13-3-1 over their last 17. They lead the Rangers in the Eastern Conference by five points and are 30-13-3 on the season, good enough for third in the Atlantic Division. Montreal is 14-8-1 on-the-road and their record is due to incredible goaltending by Carey Price. He made 40 saves against Dallas on Tuesday and was excused from practice the following day to get refreshed and ready to face the Rangers tonight.
The Rangers are 16-4-0 over their last 20 but are only 6-9-1 against Stanley Cup hopefuls from the Eastern Conference. New York lost a tough game to their hometown rivals the Islanders and need to get back on track with a win tonight. "They're definitely a team that likes to play a fast game," Coach Alain Vigneault related, knowing that he faces one of the NHL’s best tonight.
