It’s easy to say “Go to the net” when discussing a team trying to score playoff goals, but it’s easier – and far less painfully – said than done.
The Montreal Canadiens and New York Rangers have really been aggressive around the net and injuries (or near-injuries) seem to be piling up.

There’s always the chance that Miller could return to action in the third period, but for now he looks sidelined.
Markov was whistled for two minor penalties in the middle frame.
