The New York Rangers jump out to an early 1-0 lead in Montreal against the Canadiens thanks to a Tanner Glass backend.
Alright you “too smart for your own good New York Rangers fans,” it’s officially time to shut up.
Nobody cares that Tanner Glass possesses less talent than Pavel Buchnevich. His presence “fits” this lineup in a better fashion. On top of the physical presence he brings, he’s now tallied the first 2017 Stanley Cup Playoff goal for his club.
After the Montreal Canadiens came out physical against the perceived “soft” Rangers, Glass threw a blind backhander at Carey Price (video above).
It beat the all-world goaltender to the short side.
The score remains 1-0 in favor of New York with the two teams playing at an extremely fast pace. Overall, the Habs have the edge in play, but the road team has countered and answered every push thus far.
There are four minutes to go in the first period.
