Georgiev's 55 saves help Rangers cool off Leafs 4-1

Embedded Image

In a frustrating game in which the Leafs generated 56 shots on goal, they weren't able to convert on their chances, losing 4-1 to the Rangers. That goal came 71 seconds after Brendan Gallagher gave Montreal the lead with Auston Matthews in the penalty box for delay of game.

The Toronto Maple Leafs look to wrap up a successful weekend on the road Sunday night before continuing their trek west as they face the New York Rangers. Georgiev had the second-most saves in a regular-season game in franchise history. "I tried not to concentrate on the birthday wishes".

"Tough one, because going into the game here I thought we all felt really inspired and excited to play", Lundqvist told the Rangers official website, referring to the ceremonies honoring the 1994 Stanley Cup-winning team. "They found a way to capitalize at the very end and we didn't".

"Sometimes you need a performance like this and he came up big for us, gave us a chance, " Zibanejad said of Georgiev.

The Canadiens have gone 9-3-2 since that day, with winning streaks of four and three games.

The changes could have something to do with how Mike Babcock was seen in heated conversation with assistant coach Jim Hiller, who runs the power play, on the bench during Saturday's game in Montreal after those units went 0-for-3.

Andersen made 25 saves in the December win over the Rangers and has won his last three starts against them. Weise previously played 152 games with the Canadiens from 2014 to 2016.

Toronto entered the second period having put 22 shots on Georgiev, but the back-up kept stymying the Leafs, even as they controlled possession at 65-percent in that frame and peppered him with 17 shots. So much history between the two teams, foundational franchises in the National Hockey League. I think we all want to do the same, experience the same feelings and emotions. "That's a scary, scary team". I think it'll be good for our guys to go through.to understand they had good looks and good opportunities. I thought their goaltender had a good night and we missed lots of opportunities.

Leading 2-1 in the third period, McQuaid gave the Rangers some insurance when he scored from the point at 11:59 for his second goal of the season.

Kreider sent a pass from behind the net to Zuccarello, who was alone in front.

Power outage: The Leafs' power play was great Sunday, putting 23 shots on goal in four instances with the man advantage.

"It was incredibly important to keep it 1-0 at that point, " Georgiev said.

Just the thought of four or more postseason games between the Canadiens and Maple Leafs quickens the pulse in two markets that might spontaneously combust should the series happen. Defenseman Tony DeAngelo had his pass intercepted by Kapanen, who skated in on a breakaway and scored his 16th of the season at 10:35. He is 5-2-1 with a 2.90 goals-against average versus the Rangers, including a 3-1-0 mark at Madison Square Garden.

NY hardly managed extended zone time in the third, but they managed to hem Auston Matthews' line with Kapanen and Patrick Marleau into their own end for over a minute, and when Jake Muzzin sent a lazy pass to the point right on Adam McQuaid's tape, the defenceman rifled the one-timer past Sparks. Kreider sent a cross-ice pass to Vesey, who wristed it past Sparks for his 12th of the season at 14:05. Streaking into the offensive zone unobstructed, Jimmy Vesey beat Sparks short side with the Rangers' fifth shot of the game, not only restoring their one-goal lead but shifting momentum away from the visitors.

NOTES: Zuccarello has 17 points (five goals, 12 assists) in 11 games since January 12.

"It was obviously my first time Maple Leafs versus the Canadiens here at the Bell Centre".
