After an emotional ceremony that took place simultaneously in Ottawa, Toronto, and Montreal, the Canadiens got off to a hot start.
Despite early penalty trouble, the fantastic penalty killing duo of Tomas Plekanec and Max Pacioretty broke out on a 2 on 0, and fooled Henrik Lundqvist with some great passing.
Hagelin tied the game later in the third, however Carey Price seemed to be a little more worried about the Rangers player that had just dive bombed his net, rather than the play.
1-1, heading into the second.
