Canadiens seek spark to extend series with Rangers

BROSSARD, Quebec -- Montreal Canadiens coach Michel Therrien expects his friendship with New York Rangers coach Alain Vigneault will return to normal soon enough. He just hopes it isn't too soon.

Television cameras caught Vigneault lowering the passenger window of his car to speak with Therrien, who smiled.

"When I saw him coming I said I made sure to move away, and so what I told him was that I didn't want him to hit me, and he laughed about it," Therrien said Monday after the Canadiens held an optional practice at their suburban practice facility. "I thought it was funny."

Getting outshot 41-30 and relying on terrific saves by Lundqvist one night, and getting bailed out by their surging penalty kill despite giving up eight power plays on another night isn't the best way to live in the Stanley Cup Playoffs, but that's how the Rangers have taken a 3-1 lead on the Montreal Canadiens.

Quote of the Day

When somebody goes out and is there to score goals, but is also there to make some big hits, fight, do all of those things, and he has a great mustache, it was great to see him get that hit and get everybody going.
