MONTREAL - Dustin Tokarski will start in place of the injured Carey Price as the Montreal Canadiens face the New York Rangers in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Final tonight. Reggie Sanders Jersey . Head coach Michel Therrien announced earlier in the day that Price will miss the remainder of series with an injury suffered in the opening game. Listen to the action live on TSN Radio 690 and TSN.ca/Montreal at 8pm et/5pm pt. Also, TSN.ca will provide live streaming of the post-game news conferences. Alex Galchenyuk will make his first appearance of the playoffs and will draw into the lineup in place of Michael Bournival. Galchenyuk has been out since April 10 with a lower-body injury. Daniel Carcillo will play for the Rangers in place of Derick Brassard. Brassard was hurt Saturday in the first period after taking a hard hit from Montreal defenseman Mike Weaver. Brassard only played two shifts for 35 seconds of ice time before leaving the game for good. Fourth-line center Dominic Moore was pressed into an increased role following the injury. The Canadiens hope to regroup after a humiliating defeat in the opener of the Eastern Conference final. The Rangers, who were down 3-1 to Pittsburgh in the conference semifinals before rallying for the series win, posted their fourth straight victory Saturday with a 7-2 trouncing of the Habs. This is the 15th all-time playoff series between these Original Six foes, but Saturdays rout marked New Yorks largest margin of victory against Montreal in a postseason game. The seven goals also set a playoff record for the Rangers against the Habs, who had allowed six goals to New York twice before in the playoffs (Game 4, 1972 quarterfinals; Game 4, 1974 quarterfinals). With the lopsided road victory, New York also became the first team to score at least seven goals in Game 1 of a conference final since Chicago posted an 8-2 win over Edmonton in the 1992 Campbell Conference series. Ryan McDonagh led New Yorks scoring blitz with a goal and three assists, with Mats Zuccarello tallying once and adding two helpers to help make Henrik Lundqvists first win in Montreal since 2009 a rather effortless one. Even the previously slumping Rick Nash got into the act for the Rangers, potting his first goal of these playoffs while also contributing an assist. Chris Kreider, Derek Stepan and Martin St. Louis finished with a goal and an assist as well. Lundqvist, 0-3-1 with a 4.63 goals against average in his last four starts at Bell Centre, needed to make just 20 saves to end his recent struggles at the venue. "I havent won too many games in this building, so its good to get a great start," said Lundqvist afterward. "They have a lot of speed, but our defenders blocked key shots. We played a smart game." Carey Prices afternoon wasnt as effective, as Montreals standout goaltender was pulled after two periods after saving only 16-of-20 attempts. The Rangers then scored three times on eight chances against backup Peter Budaj in the third. Lars Eller had a goal and an assist in the loss, the Canadiens most lopsided one since an 8-2 setback to Carolina in Game 6 of the 2002 East semifinals. Rene Bourque also scored for a Montreal squad that will attempt to bounce back Monday before the series shifts to New York for Games 3 and 4. Game 3 is scheduled for Thursday at Madison Square Garden. "Well put that game behind us now and move forward, but thats a good lesson," Canadiens head coach Michel Therrien remarked. "We werent ready for this game," said a frustrated Therrien. "There were offensive errors and some defensive errors as well. "We were not sharp. We werent ready mentally or physically to compete in this game, and thats the result that you saw." The Rangers improved to 8-2-0 in these playoffs when scoring first, while Montreal is 1-4-0 when allowing the initial goal. In other news for New York, the entire Rangers team spent Sundays off day attending the funeral of St. Louis mother, France, who died of a heart attack on May 8. "It was good for us to be there for him, so today was a lot less about hockey and a lot more about being there for (Marty) and his family," said Rangers defenseman Marc Staal. This best-of-seven series is the first postseason encounter between these Original Six rivals since the opening round of the 1996 playoffs when New York won in six games. The clubs have played 14 playoff series and each club has won seven times, although Montreal earned the biggest victory when it beat the Rangers in the 1979 Cup Finals. Both teams are attempting to get back to the Cup Final for the first time since the 1990s. Montreal was the last team based in Canada to win it all in 1993, but has yet to return to the Cup Final, and the Rangers are aiming to get back to the final stage for the first time since winning their last championship in 1994. Scott Feldman Jersey .J. -- Rampage Jackson scowled, howled, then bellowed to the crowd: "Im back! Im back!" With rebuilt knees and a new promotion, Jackson might have one more act left in MMA. Chris Sabo Jersey .75 million contract for the 2014 season and avoided arbitration. The team announced the agreement on Tuesday. http://www.redsgearshop.com/Reds-Joey-Votto-Kids-Jersey/ . The Cavs announced the move Saturday, one day after LeBron James said hes returning to Cleveland. A 12-year veteran, Haywood has played in 794 NBA games, averaging 6.Rene Bourque scored a hat trick to lead the Montreal Canadiens to a 7-4 win over the New York Rangers in Game Five of the Eastern Conference Final, staving off elimination for the Habs and sending the series back to New York for Game Six. Bourque has been a revelation for the Canadiens in the playoffs, scoring eight goals in 16 games after a regular season in which he scored nine goals in 63 games. Bourques career-high in shots-on-goal-per-game during the regular season is 2.95, in 2009-2010; in this years playoffs, hes up to 3.19 per game, so Bourques production, while unusual, isnt being generated by outrageously fluky percentages. The Rangers pulled star G Henrik Lundqvist, after he played 28:58 and allowed four goals on 19 shots, his worst outing of the playoffs (though he allowed four goals on 23 shots in 39:57 during Game Six against Philadelphia). Canadiens C Lars Eller contributed a couple of assists, giving him 13 points in the playoffs, enough to lead all Montreal forwards. If Bourques goal-scoring comes as a surprise based on his regular-season production, so is the case with Eller, who had 26 points in 77 games during the regular season, including six points in his last 35 games. So, yes, Rene Bourque and Lars Eller are the forwards generating the numbers for a team in the Eastern Conference Final. Second-year LW Alex Galchenyuk had a goal and an assist in his fourth playoff game, returning from a knee injury suffered late in the regular season. Veteran Habs D Andrei Markov was beaten a few times, and had the worst possession stats of Montreal defencemen, but also finished the game with three assists, giving him 10 points in 16 playoff games. Canadiens RW Dale Weise chipped in a couple of assists before getting knocked woozy by a John Moore hit in the third period. Weise has put up seven points in 16 playoff games -- not spectacular, particularly considering hes rolling at 31% possession over the past four games, but still useful for a fourth line banger. After having his jaw brokenn by Brandon Prusts hit in Game Three, Rangers C Derek Stepan returned to the lineup, with facial protection, and scored two goals. Tony Perez Jersey. Stepan now has 13 points in the playoffs, tying Martin St. Louis for the Rangers team lead. Rangers LW Chris Kreider was the big scorer on the night, with a goal and three assists. Kreider now has 10 points in nine playoff games and he led the Rangers with eight shot attempts in the game. Bourque led the Canadiens with eight attempted shots. Former Habs prospect, now Rangers No. 1 D Ryan McDonagh added two more assists. McDonagh has nine points in five games in his series. He had three points in 14 games through the first two rounds. Rangers RW Rick Nash also had a goal and an assist, giving him five points in five games against Montreal. He had five points in 14 games prior to this series. The Canadiens managed to win a game that they nearly gave away, surrending a 4-1 second-period lead by allowing three goals in 4:24, before Bourque scored his second and third of the night to create some breathing room. The good news for the Habs is that G Dustin Tokarski earned a win stopping 23 of 27 shots, a generally mediocre performance. The reason it ought to be good news is that if the Habs are going to come back from a three-games-to-one deficit, they probably need Tokarski to steal at least one game for them. The clubs have been relatively even in possession terms -- the Rangers hold a 293-to-288 edge in overall shot attempts for the series -- so the point of differentiation could easily be goaltending. The task for the Canadiens is still daunting, as Game Six goes in Manhattan and, despite Game Fives results, the goaltending edge remains with the Rangers. But, if the Habs find a way to get it done in Game Six, returning home for Game Seven would be a most interesting proposition.
