Canadiens vs. Rangers: Game thread, rosters, lines (without Radulov), and how to watch

The Habs are looking to extend their win streak in the Big Apple.

Don’t look now, but the Montreal Canadiens have got themselves a win streak going.

The Habs are winners of four in a row, with their latest win coming against P.K. Subban’s Nashville Predators. Alex Galchenyuk leads the team with five points in that stretch, followed closely by Max Pacioretty and Alexander Radulov (who is day-to-day with a lower-body injury), each with four apiece.

It may also be safe to say that Carey Price has found his groove to help the team win games. His .965 save percentage and the team’s 0.98 goals-against average in their last three games has been huge for the Canadiens as they finally seem to be adapting to new head coach Claude Julien’s systems. The Habs hope to extend their streak with a fifth win to further cement their top spot in the Atlantic Division.

Meanwhile, the Rangers are in fourth in the Metropolitan, sitting slightly behind Columbus and Pittsburgh. The Rangers are 3-2 in their last five games, and seem to be getting contributions from everywhere in the lineup as they have 10 different players with two points or more in that stretch.
