Canadiens Fall to Rangers 5-2 as Third Period Surge Secures Victory for New York

Montreal Canadiens lose to New York Rangers

In a disappointing turn of events, the Montreal Canadiens suffered a 5-2 defeat at the hands of the New York Rangers at Madison Square Garden. Despite a commendable 41-save performance by goaltender Cayden Primeau, the Canadiens couldn’t withstand the Rangers’ offensive onslaught in the third period, where New York scored four goals to secure the win.

Cole Caufield continued to shine for Montreal, extending his goal-scoring streak to four games with a notable milestone: his 24th goal of the season, and his 200th career NHL game.

While the Canadiens have grappled with second-period struggles throughout the season, this time it was the third period that proved to be their downfall. Additionally, the absence of defensemen Kaiden Guhle and Arber Xhekaj due to upper-body injuries further compounded Montreal’s challenges on the ice.
