The New York Rangers
rarely go to Montreal on Sundays. Their visit to the Bell Centre marks the Blueshirts' 304th regular-season game in Montreal against the Canadiens, but just the fifth to be played on a Sunday.
The Rangers come to Montreal on top of the overall standings after a 3-0 win in Toronto on Saturday -- the same night the Canadiens fell to 1-6 in shootouts by losing 3-2 at home to Ottawa.
NBC Sports Network will air the game in the United States, beginning at 7 p.m. ET. Canadian fans can tune in on RDS.
