The Canadiens head back to Montreal facing a tough mountain to climb in their Eastern Conference final series after losing 3-2 to the New York Rangers in overtime on Sunday.
The Canadiens are now on the brink of elimination with the Rangers holding a 3-1 lead in their best-of-seven series. Game 5 will be played Tuesday at the Bell Centre.
“We have to find a way to regroup. This series isn’t over,” Canadiens captain Brian Gionta said after the Habs loss at Madison Square Garden.
“I thought we battled hard and had a decent game. We just have to keep building,” Gionta said.
