Rangers vs Canadiens coverage

The Montreal Canadiens meet their Original Six rival New York Rangers, for the 601st time, to kick off a pair of afternoon games.

The Habs hold a one pont lead over the Rangers for 6th in the Eastern Conference, and are 5-0-1 in the last six meetings at Bell Centre.

The Rangers have lost their last three games.Henrik Lundqvist has lost eight straight in Montreal, so expect Martin Biron to get the start.

Carey Pricewill get the start for the Canadiens, and is 2-1-1 in his career against the Blueshirts.

Expect the same Habs lineup from Wednesday's win over the Florida Panthers, provided James Wisniewski has recovered from a flu bug.

Forwards: Pacioretty-Plekanec-Gionta | Kostitsyn-Gomez-Eller | Darche-Desharnais-Pouliot | Moen-Halpern-Pyatt

Defence Pairings: Subban-Gill | Spacek-Hamrlik | Weber-Picard
