The Montreal Canadiens are 1-1-0, ranking #3 in the Atlantic Division in NHL 2017-18. On the other hand, the New York Rangers are 0-2-0, ranking #8 in the Metropolitan Division. Both teams have been through devastating plays in their last games. Needless to say, both teams are looking forward to renewing their pride with this game.
The Canadiens have recently lost badly to Washington. Now seemingly the master of hat tricks, captain Alex Ovechkin of the Washington team had yet another hat trick (now back to back). Montreal was defeated 6-1, thrashed is the more appropriate term.
Nevertheless, one thing that a thrashing like that means is that the team has a vigor now. A vigor to take back their pride. They can’t undo what happened, but they can make up for it. This NHL season still has a long way to go, and Montreal will get plenty of opportunities to prove that it means business and is a good team.
Their game against the New York Rangers — now, could that be one of the opportunities?
The New York Rangers also had quite a bit of a bad game in their last meeting with the Toronto Maple Leafs. The Toronto team is now better than ever, brimming with new energy. New York lost 8-5. Toronto had a great offense, and we can’t appreciate them enough for that. But as for the New York Rangers, it just means that they also have to prove to the world that they are still a serious team who can take care of its competitors, and give a tough fight if winning is not possible.
