With the Montreal Canadiens leading the series 2-1, game four takes place Tuesday in Madison Square Garden.
The Canadiens stole game three from the New York Rangers in MSG with a 3-1 victory and, with the Rangers on the ropes, this is a must win for them in game four.
After not being able to get on the scoreboard in game one, the Montreal Canadiens have done a great job of that in the past two games. The Canadiens won game three 3-1 and were fantastic on both ends of the ice.
Defensively, the Canadiens held New York to just one goal on 21 shots, leading to a .952 save percentage for Carey Price.
Offensively, Artturi Lehkonen and Shea Weber got their first goals of the playoffs thanks to great power plays and Alexander Radulov solidified the win in the third period with his second goal of the postseason.
New York Rangers
With New York losing the last two games, game four is a must win as the momentum continues to build for Montreal.
In game three, the offense simply wasn’t working. The Rangers only got 21 shots on Carey Price and scored just once on a Brady Skjei shot with less than four minutes left in the game.
None of the usual suspects could get going for New York, with Michael Grabner getting three shots but only seeing 10:22 of ice time.
The one positive to take away from game three was Henrik Lunqvist’s performance. He stopped 26 of 29 shots and, frankly, two of the goals he let in were on the penalty kill after poor minor penalties from his team. If he continues to play well, New York still has a chance to win.
NHL Betting Trends:
- New York is 0-5 ATS in the last five games
- The UNDER is 6-2 in Montreal’s last eight games
Free Montreal Canadiens vs. New York Rangers Game 4 NHL Playoff Prediction:
Game four should see another great performance from Montreal and it’ll be tough for the Rangers to win. However, I think New York gets one at home and plays much better offensively. Rangers get the W.
4* Free NHL Game 4 Betting Pick: New York -115
Dropping the last two means that New York has to play like this is an elimination game. The Rangers offense should get going and Henrik Lunqvist will be predictably great in goal. I like the New York money line in this one.
