Canadiens vs Rangers second period thread

New, comments

Prust puts on a clown show, Rangers get lucky with Gorges and Tokarski. New York leads 1-0 after one.

So we all hate Brandon Prust right? Seriously, what is that guy thinking? Overall it's just kind of embarrassing. There's a good chance he won't be back next game either from a suspension or a much needed benching so there's a silver lining.

Ok moving on... Tokarski did what he had to do until Gorges interrupted that. That goal was hardly the most embarrassing thing that happened in the period so there's the upshot on that.

The other upshot is that the roof hasn't caved in, it's a one goal lead going into the second, if they can get their heads together and get back in it, all is not lost. If they can't, it wasn't meant to be.

Is Galchenyuk 100%? Would a well-rest Bournival have added some jump to this lineup?
