After showing their road moxie and capturing the first two games north of the border, the Rangers returned home and dropped a tough one in overtime at Madison Square Garden to the desperate Canadiens. The two historic clubs battle tonight in a pivotal game four, which couid go a long way to deciding the series.
The Rangers will be without top center Derek Stepan, who's jaw was broken by Montreal's Brandon Prust in game three. Prust was suspended for the next two games. Joining Prust in the league's doghouse will be Ranger Daniel Carcillo, who will miss ten games on account of his elbow getting a little too friendly with the mug of linesman Scott Driscoll.
