Rangers-Habs on NBCSP highlights Sunday's games
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.
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.

Quote of the Day

You know what? We've played in some pretty special buildings along this playoff run so far. You start in Detroit, you go to Montreal, you come here … I think it's the first team to beat three Original Six teams to get to the Final if I'm not mistaken. That says how tough the road has been. Those are tough places to win.
