NY managed just two goals - including an empty-net - but it was the game-winner from the fourth line that reinforced that depth that is crucial come playoff time, and will be Friday night when the Blueshirts look to sweep the first two games in Montreal before the series shifts to Madison Square Garden Sunday night. The Rangers have locked up the first wild card seed and will face the Atlantic division leading Montreal Canadiens in round one.
Game 2 of the first round series is Friday night at 7 p.m. He had five shots, two hits and two blocks in Wednesday's loss.
The Habs' mascot was forced to bite the bullet and wear a Rangers jersey around town three years ago after losing the bet.
His lineup remained the same for all to see at practice - with 30-goal scorer Alex Galchenyuk still anchoring the fourth line - with Julien saying he would sleep on it before Game 2 on Friday night at the Bell Centre. That's what we were expecting from him tonight.
In a series between two teams known for their speed, a surprise came out of the opening game as the two combined for 98 hits through 60 minutes (45 for NY, 53 for Montreal). But the same may not apply in the postseason. The New York Rangers have won 10 of their last 15 games when allowing three or less goals. His clean sheet in the opener put him in the career lead among active National Hockey League goalies with 10.
Rangers forwards Mats Zuccarello and Rick Nash have missed time this week, in addition to defensemen Ryan McDonagh and Nick Holden. Antti Raanta is better than Al Montoya but neither team wants to have to go that route. His first-period tally stood until a late empty-net goal sealed the win.
April 2, 2017; New York, NY, USA; New York Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist (30) warms up before the first period against the Philadelphia Flyers at Madison Square Garden.
Fired up by 1960s pop star Ginette Reno's national anthem, the Canadiens were all over NY in the opening period, but the Rangers struck first at 9:50.
There has been a lot written about the decline of Lundqvist but he has a history of upping his play in big games and rather than getting his obituary written, the team should approach this year's run as a race against father time. "A great play by (Glass)".
"We have to be a little harder around the net", said Martinsen. The Sharks beat the Oilers, 3-2 in overtime, but Talbot had the save of the night when Brent Burns had all day to find the right shot and still couldn't get the puck past Talbot's skate.

Game 2 is Saturday in Ottawa.
However, when facing a team with a different style of play, the coaches were too quick to change the strategy that has made them successful all season. While the Habs will have home-ice advantage in the first-round series that "advantage" could be a negligible edge. That's what happens in the playoffs. There's a couple of guys who would be the first to tell you, 'I need to be better, ' and we all know that. It's fair to say things have not exactly turned out the way GM Marc Bergevin envisioned in Montreal, but all of that can be made right by Price giving the Canadiens the otherworldly goaltending they've received in the past from the likes of Ken Dryden and Patrick Roy.
With Montreal playing on the power play in the second period, the Rangers netminder tracked a cross-ice pass and made a diving save on Shea Weber's one-timer.
The second period was the better period for the Rangers as they dominated play but couldn't get the puck passed Carey Price. "We had some good looks".
NY almost struck early in the period when Chris Kreider skated toward a loose puck for a potential breakaway.
