Three times the Rangers have played the Canadiens and twice they have come from behind to win the game. The first came in the first meeting between these two teams back on December 30, 2007. The Rangers were down by a goal late in the third period only to have what had appeared to be the game-tying goal taken away after a video review. Not willing to let this game go, Chris Drury scored a minute later and sent the game to OT. Brendan Shanahan eventually scored in OT to get the Rangers the win.
The next time the Rangers and Canadiens played was January 12, 2008. The Rangers had not won a game since defeating the Canadiens in OT 13 days earlier. The Rangers would win 4-1.
Finally, on February 3, 2008, the Rangers played the Canadiens at the Bell Centre for the first time this season. After falling behind by 3 goals just a quarter of the way into the second period, the Rangers suddenly woke up and scored 5 goals in a row.
Hopefully, tonight the Rangers wont have to battle back when the take on the Canadiens in Montreal for the fourth and final time of the regular season. Henrik Lundqvist will get the start against Carey Price.
