- Montreal did a great job playing their system and sucking any and all energy and momentum for the Rangers in this game.
- Chris Kreider seemed to embrace a bit more of the physical game tonight. He had four hits and didn’t seem afraid to engage in confrontation.
- Montreal took so many icings and the only way to really combat that is to win those faceoffs in the Montreal zone. Those faceoffs in the Montreal zone were split around 50-50.
