Stamkos Hat Trick Leads Rout of Canadiens

Len Redkoles/NHLI via Getty Images(TAMPA BAY, FL) -- Steven Stamkos led an offensive onslaught over the Montreal Canadiens that spearheaded a 7-1 Tampa Bay Lightning win at Amalie Arena.

Stamkos recorded a hat trick, the eighth of his career. His third goal came with 1:46 remaining in the second period, when he fired a shot from the right circle that gave the Lightning a 4-1 lead.  

"I've learned over the years that if you stick with it, usually the floodgates open," Stamkos said.

Stamkos is now tied with Martin St. Louis for franchise record in hat tricks.

The Lightning are 2-0-1 on the season.

Canadiens and Defenseman P.K. Subban Agree on Eight-Year Deal

Canadiens and Defenseman P.K. Subban Agree on Eight-Year Deal

Mark Serota/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- The Montreal Canadiens weren't letting star defenseman P.K. Subban go anywhere as he and team have agreed on an eight-year extension through the 2021-2022 season.

ESPN is reporting that Subban's new deal will pay him $72 million total, with an average annual value of $9 million.

"We are very pleased to have reached a long term agreement with P.K. Subban," general manager Marc Bergevin said in a statement. "This agreement helps consolidate the future of our team. A key element of our group of young veterans, P.K. plays with a high level of intensity every time he steps onto the ice. Despite his young age, he carries a great deal of experience and brings contagious energy to the team. Defensemen of his level are a rare commodity in the NHL."

Subban was a restricted free agnet this season after coming off a two-year deal worth $5.75 million.

In 82 games this past season, the 25-year-old Subban scored 10 goals and also had 43 assists. His 53 points were the  sixth-most by a defenseman this past season.

Canadiens Chase Lundqvist, Force Game 6

Canadiens Chase Lundqvist, Force Game 6

Francois Lacasse/NHLI via Getty Images(MONTREAL) -- Henrik Lundqvist's great play in the NHL Eastern Conference Final didn't apply in Game 5.

Lundqvist allowed four goals on 19 shots before being pulled at the 8:58 mark in the second period as the Montreal Canadiens went on to beat the New York Rangers 7-4 Tuesday night.

The Rangers now lead the best-of-seven series three games to two.

When Lundqvist was pulled, the Canadiens led the game 4-1. The Rangers responded immediately, scoring three goals in under five minutes to tie the game. But Rene Bourque followed that by scoring one of his three goals on the night to give the Canadiens the lead for good.

"Everybody was ready for this game," Bourque said. "We knew the situation."

Cam Talbot let in two of the eight shots he faced after taking Lundqvist's place in net.

"I pulled (Lundqvist) him because I thought at that time we needed a little momentum shift and I thought it might catch everybody's attention," Rangers coach Alain Vigneault said. "It did for a while. Obviously it didn't work out."

Alex Galchenyuk, Tomas Plekanec, David Desharnais, and Max Pacioretty also scored for Montreal in the win.

"I think you're starting to see us playing Montreal Canadiens hockey," Pacioretty said. "I don't think you've really seen it in this series just yet. It was great to see a little taste of it. I think we still have more. I think we still have little things to work on. And it should be a fun one going back there."

"There," meaning New York, where Game 6 will be held Thursday night. The puck is scheduled to drop at 8 p.m. Eastern.

St. Louis Overtime Winner Gives Rangers 3-1 Edge

St. Louis Overtime Winner Gives Rangers 3-1 Edge

Al Bello/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Martin St. Louis scored six minutes into overtime, giving the New York Rangers a 3-2 win Sunday and a 3-1 series lead over the Montreal Canadiens in the Eastern Conference Finals. St. Louis has now registered a point in six-straight playoff games, helping to put the Rangers on the verge of the Stanley Cup Finals.

"I just got open,'' said St. Louis. "I tried to trust my instincts. I hit some good shots, he made some good saves. I was fortunate this one got by him.''

Carl Hagelin started the scoring in the first with a short-handed goal and ended up assisting St. Louis on the game winner. The two teams traded goals over the final two periods of regulation with Derick Brassard giving the Rangers a 2-1 lead after the second period. P.K. Subban tied things up on a power play two minutes into the third, helping to send the game in overtime.

In the extra frame, the Rangers controlled possession in the attacking zone. As the puck drifted its way along the boards, Montreal turned it over and Hagelin found St. Louis at the right circle. The 14-year veteran sniped one over the right shoulder of Dustin Tokarski, sending the Madison Square Garden crowd into a frenzy.

Despite giving the Canadiens six power plays, New York's penalty kill allowed just one goal in the game. The Rangers had not allowed a goal in 27 straight penalty kills prior to Subban's tying tally. Both teams had 29 shots on goal but Henrik Lundqvist made one more save than Tokarski to earn the win.

New York can clinch their first berth into the Stanley Cup Finals since winning it all in 1994 on Tuesday night.

Galchenyuk’s OT Goal Lifts Canadiens over Rangers

Galchenyuk’s OT Goal Lifts Canadiens over Rangers

Scott Levy/NHL/Getty Images(NEW YORK) --  Alex Galchenyuk scored a goal 1:12 into overtime as the Montreal Canadiens topped the New York Rangers 3-2 on Thursday night in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Finals.

The Canadiens still trail the series 2-1, but they can pull even with a Game 4 win at Madison Square Garden on Sunday night.

Dustin Tokarski stopped 35 shots for Montreal while filling in for the injured Carey Price. He was playing in only his second career NHL playoff game, but after Thursday's performance he seems to be embracing the challenge.

"I did everything I could." said Tokarski. "I played the same game all the way. I felt more comfortable as it went along.

"So glad we overcame that late bounce and got the winner."

Daniel Briere scored with 3:02 remaining in the third period to give Montreal a 2-1 lead. After the Rangers pulled goalie Henrik Lundqvist, Chris Kreider scored to tie the game at 2 with 29 seconds to play.

The Rangers had their five-game winning streak snapped as they fell to 1-1 in overtime in these playoffs.  The Canadiens are 3-1.

"We played really well, but we just have to forget about it, move on, and get ready for the next one," Lundqvist said after stopping 22 of 25 shots.

Rangers Top Canadiens 3-1, Take 2-0 Series Lead

Rangers Top Canadiens 3-1, Take 2-0 Series Lead

Francois Lacasse/National Hockey League/Getty Images(MONTREAL) -- Henrik Lundqvist made 40 saves as the New York Rangers defeated the Montreal Canadiens 3-1 on Monday night to take a 2-0 lead in their Eastern Conference final series.

"I thought we played well, and the only reason we lost was Lundqvist," Montreal coach Michel Therrien said. "He stole that game."

The Canadiens found out before the game that star goalie Carey Price will miss the remainder of the postseason with a lower body injury.  In a surprising move, Dustin Tokarski started the game over backup Peter Budaj.

Ryan McDonough, Rick Nash, and Martin St. Louis all scored on Tokarski to help New York took a commanding lead in their best-of-seven series.

Max Pacioretty scored 6:14 into the first period to give Montreal a 1-0 lead.  McDonough answered with his own goal 17 seconds later to tie the game, and that was all the momentum the Rangers needed.

"We knew they were going to come hard, but we put ourselves in a tough spot there by not getting pucks out," Lundqvist said. "They were all over us.

Game 3 will be played on Thursday night at Madison Square Garden.

Rangers Dominate Canadiens In Game 1 of Eastern Conference Finals

Francois/Getty Images(MONTREAL)  -- The New York Rangers came to play Saturday.

Seven different Rangers scored en route to a 7-2 domination of the Montreal Canadiens Saturday, in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals.

Martin St. Louis, who attended his mother's wake on Friday and will be at her funeral on Sunday, scored 4:35 into the game to get the Rangers on the board.

"It was an emotional time for everyone, but the guys have been behind me and supported me," St. Louis said. "My teammates are behind me and supporting me, and their effort was unbelievable.

"We feel really close right now and we're trying to keep feeding off that."

Rick Nash, who led the Rangers in goals in the regular season, scored his first goal of the postseason in the win.

"We're all happy to see Nasher score because he's taken a lot of heat," Rangers center Brad Richards said. "That's a little weight off his back."

Henrik Lundqvist made 20 saves for the Blueshirts earning his first win in Montreal since March 17, 2009.

Game 2 is Monday night in Montreal. The puck is scheduled to drop at 8 p.m. Eastern.
