Undefeated Blues pose test for Rangers

The New York Rangers and Henrik Lundqvist will look to build off their first win of the season when they continue a heavy stretch of home games with a Tuesday contest against the St. Louis Blues at Madison Square Garden.

Lundqvist rebounded from allowing five goals and being pulled after one period during the Rangers’ 8-5 road loss against the Toronto Maple Leafs on Saturday by making 34 saves in his 64th career shutout on Sunday, a 2-0 victory against the visiting Montreal Canadiens.

“It was very important to bounce back for all of us and also the way we won the game,” Lundqvist said. “This is how we have to play; you have to do every little thing right.”

“Lots of chances, but we need to find a way to finish a little bit better,” Julien said after the loss to the Rangers. “I thought it was an improvement from our last game, from defensively to even breakouts to managing the puck. I thought we spent a lot of time in the other team’s end. The next step is finding ways to capitalize on those opportunities and the time we spend in the Troy Polamalu Cheap Jerseys other team’s end.”

Canadiens captain Max Pacioretty, who has scored one of their three goals, said, “They were good calls. Maybe if we disagreed with them, it’d be frustrating. We were getting the Wholesale Jerseys Free Shipping puck there, but … it’s nice to look at the shot clock and have lots of shots, but I think Pittsburgh just proved last year winning the Cup that making plays, making the goalie move, making it hard on him is how you win games.”
