Rangers Set to Take on The Canadiens

Things are certainly in flux when it comes to the Montreal Canadiens these days.

Their GM was fired yesterday, their head coach will more than likely be gone after the season and the team is currently in last place in the entire Eastern Conference. Not so rosy, right?

This should be good news to the New York Rangers as they look to build up on their five point lead over the Pittsburgh Penguins for first in the Atlantic Division and Eastern Conference when they take on the Canadiens tonight at Madison Square Garden. The Blueshirts are 7-3 in their last 10 games and are on a three game winning streak heading into tonight’s tilt.

The Rangers are coming off a 4-2 victory over the Winnipeg Jets, a game in which they showed their never say die style. The team came back from a 2-0 deficit and scored four unanswered goals to win the hockey game.

After tonight’s game against the Canadiens, the Rangers will take on the Boston Bruins on Sunday at MSG. The Rangers have yet to lose to the Bruins this season and should the club manage to win tonight and on Sunday, both the division and their conference could end up being locked up.

It is important for the Rangers to keep pushing forward as they get closer to the start of the postseason. The more momentum they have, the better they will be when it comes to the most important time of an NHL season.
