Liveblog: Canadiens start road trip with 4-1 win over Rangers

Chris Kreider scored early in the third period to give the home team some life.

But Jordie Benn’s point shot five minutes later made it 4-1.


Almost 13 minutes into the game, Steve Ott won a draw cleanly and Shea Weber’s shot ticked off Rangers Dman Adam Clendening and past Henrik Lundqvist to open the scoring.

Nine minutes into the second period, Artturi Lehkonen’s 12th made it 2-0.

Ten minutes later, Lundqvist lost track of the puck and Andrew Shaw’s wraparound made it 3-0.

Canadiens had a 35-27 show advantage.

    So happy to see this team turn the corner.
    I was wrong the other day when I questioned the leadership on the team. Confidence and leadership are 2 completely animals and clearly what the team has been lacking is confidence.
    Doubtless if they lose a few games people will go on about how we donĀ“t have real 1st and 2nd line centres but I love the depth on the team.
    If Gallagher turns the corner it gives us a heck of alot of scoring depth on the wings. Unfortunately Plekanec does not seem to be turning the corner, sad to see him struggle as he has.
    What does concern me is how far the habs can go with Markov as the offensive first pairing Dman at this stage of his career.

    Holy schit. I think Laviolette needs to hit the gym a little more frequently. That suit is a custom cut….

    Maybe MT getting fired will have same effect for Hans as when he got fired in Pittsburgh
