Video: Habs score early, Rangers reply 17 seconds later

May 19, 2014, 8:39 PM EDT

Didn’t take long for New York to snuff out Montreal’s bright start at the Bell Center.

The Canadiens got off to a dream start in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference finals, taking a 1-0 lead just 6:14 into the game when a hardworking cycle shift resulted in Max Pacioretty banking home his first goal and point of the series:

But, as mentioned above, Montreal’s good vibes were short-lived.

The Habs surrendered the equalizer just 17 seconds after Pacioretty’s goal, as Ryan McDonagh‘s wrister caromed off Josh Gorges and behind Dustin Tokarski:

The goal continued McDonagh’s offensive assault on the Habs — through four periods of action this series, the Rangers rearguard has two goals and three assists, putting him just four points back of P.K. Subban for the scoring lead among defensemen this postseason.

      How people think he is the best D-man in the league is beyond me.

      • cofran2004 - May 20, 2014 at 12:25 PM

        yeah, the best d-man in the league is playing in this series, but he wears 27 and plays for the other team.

    I went to a diving competition and a hockey game broke out.

    Seriously, this is embarrassing. And as usual the Habs fans think every dive by their team should result in a Habs PP.

      Back in 60’s and 70’s they were knowledgeable fans .What the heck happened ? In fact they didn’t boo they whistled if they didn’t like the call .

      • joey4id - May 19, 2014 at 9:56 PM

        Mickey, you on the bottle again? Fans never whistled in the 60s or 70s because they didn’t like a call. That was a Russian thing.

      • 7mantel - May 19, 2014 at 10:03 PM

        Was it ? Oh well my memory failed me , lets see how much you retain ! You already forgot from a earlier post this year that I don’t drink .

    • joey4id - May 19, 2014 at 9:51 PM

      Yeah! Seriously! Contrary to every other fan base the Montreal fans are homers. Go figure.

      • 7mantel - May 19, 2014 at 9:55 PM

        NYR fans aren’t homers ,Just ask me and I’ll tell ya !

      • joey4id - May 19, 2014 at 9:57 PM

        Ok. I will. Hey! Mickey! Are Rangers’ fans homers? 😊

      • 7mantel - May 19, 2014 at 10:06 PM

        Maybe once !

    I starting to think that Montreal Canadiens fans don’t know how hockey is played because boo every time a Canadien falls. I am also thinking that the Canadiens don’t know how to ice skate because they are falling all over the place.

    • cheetah440 - May 19, 2014 at 10:46 PM

      They know. Their Canadiens. They celebrate a PP like it’s a victory. “Hooray, we got a penalty”. Just horrible hockey and horrible fans. I can’t ever recall rooting for NY in my life but tonight I LOVE NY!!!

    PK talking smack to Boyle at the break….I wonder if Weise is going to tell on him?

    • thesportsjudge - May 19, 2014 at 11:12 PM

      One thing Weise WON’T do is drop the gloves with Boyle to defend a teammate.
