The Montreal Canadiens came flying out the gate and seemed faster and more physical that the New York Rangers. But after falling behind 1-0, Henrik Lundqvist went into brick-wall-mode and Blueshirts' offense was able to find the net in a 3-1 Game 2 road win on Monday night in the Eastern Conference Finals.
Trailing the dangerous Penguins offense 3-1 in the series and headed back to Pittsburgh, no one really thought the Rangers had a chance. But, Tuesday night's Game 7 win on the road in Pennsylvania capped a three-game rally that is sending New York back to the Eastern Conference Finals for the second time in three seasons.
After mustering just two goals combined in their last three games, the New York Rangers scored five times in Game 5 Friday, staving-off elimination for at least one more game with a 5-1 win over the Penguins in Pittsburgh.
Plenty of scoring opportunities were fended off by Philadelphia's Steve Mason, but two Rangers were able to find the net in New York's 2-1 win over the Flyers in Game 7 at Madison Square Garden on Wednesday night.
Philadelphia police say they are investigating a fight between fans of the Philadelphia Flyers and the New York Rangers outside a Philadelphia restaurant following Monday's NHL Winter Classic. The fight, which happened outside Geno's Steaks in South Philly, was captured on video and posted on YouTube
