For additional insight into the Stanley Cup Playoff series between the New York Rangers and Montreal Canadiens, NHL.com has enlisted the help of former NHL coach Craig Ramsay to break down the action. Ramsay will be checking in throughout the series.
Ramsay played in more than 1,000 NHL games with the Buffalo Sabres before going on to coach the Sabres, Philadelphia Flyers and Atlanta Thrashers. In the 2000 Stanley Cup Playoffs, he led the Flyers to the seventh game of the Eastern Conference Final. Ramsay most recently was an assistant coach with the Florida Panthers.
The Montreal Canadiens might be stung by the news that goalie Carey Price will not play again in the Eastern Conference Final, but longtime NHL coach and player Craig Ramsay said all they have to do is look back at their own history to find examples of goalies stepping up and shining in the big moment when no one was expecting them to.
