Video: Rangers open the scoring on wild play in front of Tokarski

Dustin Tokarski didn’t have much of a chance on this one.

The New York Rangers opened the scoring in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Final against the Montreal Canadiens on Carl Hagelin‘s fifth goal of the post-season. And what a wild and odd sequence this turned out to be.

It started when P.K. Subban coughed up the puck and the New York blue line after the Canadiens won the faceoff. Hagelin broke in on a two-on-one rush, dished off to Martin St. Louis, who was somehow robbed by the left glove of Josh Gorges, who had gone sliding backwards into Tokarski.

The collision between Gorges and Tokarski rendered the Habs goalie almost useless in that situation, and Hagelin, showing off his baseball skills, knocked the puck out of mid-air and into the net. Odd. But this has been an eventful game already, with the first-period sequence that saw Daniel Carcillo tossed less than six minutes in.

The Habs, down 2-0 in the series, evened the score in the second period on a goal from Andrei Markov.

    Penalty on Gallagher at end of 2nd period is a bloody joke. Hafta to beat the NHL, the refs and the Rangers in this series! BS. I hope Parros runs Lundqvist thru board into drivers seat of the Zamboni next game.

    I hope the Rangers put down these bunch of bleeping p—– in four straight. They get away with penalty after penalty while the Rangers get called for ticky tack stuff. When the tables get turned one time, and the Rangers get away with ONE call, the Canadiens go off like a bunch of ballistic little fairies, led by the little turd Gallagher. The players probably called 911 during intermission. You know that someone in the front office contacted the league during the break. The Canadiens are a disgrace to the game of hockey, mirroring their coach Therrien. Sickening.
