If you’re looking for a contest between top-tier goaltenders, the first-round series between the New York Rangers and the Montreal Canadiens is the matchup for you.
The Atlantic Division-winning Canadiens will host the Rangers on Wednesday night for Game 1 at the Bell Centre. Despite posting 102 points in the regular season, New York enters the Stanley Cup playoffs as a wild-card team thanks to the powerhouses atop the Metropolitan Division.
The Canadiens fared very well against the Rangers this season, sweeping the regular-season series 3-0. This postseason series could be hard pressed for scoring, though, as Montreal’s Carey Price and New York’s Henrik Lundqvist are two of the best netminders in the league.
