After losing the first two tests of this best-of-seven series on home ice, the Habs rebounded with Thursdays 3-2 overtime victory in New York City to cut the series deficit to 2-1. Alex Galchenyuk supplied the winner just 72 seconds into the extra session, capping a fierce battle that eventually led to two players being suspended by the league. This playoff battle -- the first between Montreal and New York since 1996 -- seemed to be lacking in bad blood at the start but that has changed over the course of three meetings. It began with the injury in Game 1 to Montreals Carey Price, who was lost for the series after a collision with New Yorks Chris Kreider, and the animosity reached new levels on Thursday. Former Ranger Brandon Prust kicked off the Game 3 hostilities with a late, blind side check on New York forward Derek Stepan just 2:45 into the opening period. No penalty was called for the hit, which resulted in a broken jaw for Stepan, but Prust was hit with a two-game suspension on Friday. Stepan, meanwhile, is out for Game 4 after having surgery Friday to repair his broken jaw. However, Derick Brassard, who sat out Games 2 and 3 with an upper- body injury sustained on a hit from Montreals Mike Weaver in the opener, is ready to return and will replace Stepan in the lineup tonight. The bigger suspension went to New Yorks Daniel Carcillo for abuse of an official. Carcillo was whistled for charging Prust at 5:51 of the first, setting off a fight between New Yorks Derek Dorsett and the former Ranger. While the fight was going on, Carcillo became physical with an official and was hit with a game misconduct. On Friday, the NHL handed down a 10-game suspension to Carcillo, who wont be eligible to return this postseason unless the Rangers stretch the Eastern Conference finals to seven games and then advance to a deciding Game 7 in the Stanley Cup Finals. Carcillo has appealed the suspension. While the rough stuff grabbed most of the headlines after Game 3, the on-ice battle was memorable as well. Montreal went ahead 2-1 on a goal by Danny Briere with 3:02 left in the third, but Kreider scored with just 28.1 seconds remaining in regulation to send the game to OT. The Canadiens then wasted no time in overtime, as Tomas Plekanec skated in through the middle and threw the puck on net from the left circle. Henrik Lundqvist made a left-pad save on the shot, but the rebound hit off a crashing Galchenyuk in front of the net and went in to end the game. Lundqvist, who was pulled in favor of the extra attacker on Kreiders game- tying goal, turned away 21 shots on Thursday, but he was outdueled by Canadiens netminder Dustin Tokarski. Making just his second playoff start in place of Price, Tokarski shined in Game 3 as he stopped 35 shots to get his first postseason win. "Hes a battler and the most important thing is hes a winner," said Montreal coach Michel Therrien. "You have to give a lot of credit to the Rangers, they came out strong. We weathered the storm and played with more confidence as the game went on. But without Tokarski, we wouldnt have won that game." Andrei Markov also scored for Montreal, which is hoping to get to the Stanley Cup finals for the first time since defeating Los Angeles in 1993. That also marked the last time a club from Canada lifted the Cup. Carl Hagelin joined Kreider as the goal-scorers for the Rangers, who were last in the Cup finals one year after the Canadiens, also taking home the chalice in a seven-game series against Vancouver in 1994. The Rangers hope to put Game 3 behind them on Sunday, as they shoot for a 3-1 lead in the series. New York outshot the Canadiens by a 37-25 margin on Thursday, so there are some positives to draw from the clubs first setback since falling behind three games to one against Pittsburgh in the conference semis. "We played really well, but we just have to forget about it, move on, and get ready for the next one," Lundqvist said. Game 5 is scheduled for Tuesday in Montreal. Depending on the outcome of Sundays clash, the next meeting will either offer a chance for New York to clinch a berth in the Cup Finals or give the Habs an opportunity to take the series lead. This is the first postseason encounter between these Original Six rivals since the opening round of the 1996 playoffs when New York won in six games. The clubs have split 14 previous playoff series, but the Rangers had won six straight postseason games against Montreal before Thursdays loss. Nate Solder Jersey . Eller scored the midway through the third period after Dallas scored twice to tie it, leading Canadiens to a 6-4 win over the Stars on Thursday night. Cody Latimer Jersey . CHAUNCEY BILLUPS (Pistons): Yes they got Josh Smith and Brandon Jennings in the off-season and Andre Drummond is a beast (teams are kicking themselves for passing on him - he rebounds and block shots every game - thats two more discernable and significant skills than most guys in his draft class), but dont for a second discount the impact of having a savvy veteran like Billups on your team. http://www.nygiantsfanaticshop.com/Black-Kareem-Martin-Giants-Jersey.html?cat=941 .

Pacioretty scored twice to extend his goal streak to five games, P.K. Subban also lit the lamp and Andrei Markov tallied two assists for the Canadiens, who bounced back from a 2-1 overtime loss to Pittsburgh on Saturday. Carey Price stopped 14-of-16 shots in the win. Ryan Johansen and Kevin Connauton supplied the offense for the Blue Jackets, who dropped their third straight game. Sergei Bobrovsky allowed three goals on 31 shots in defeat. Midway through the third period, Columbus took advantage of Subbans tripping penalty as it increased its lead to 2-0 on Johansens short-side wrister over the shoulder of Price from the left circle. Less than two minutes later, Markov sent a pass from along the left boards to Pacioretty, who turned around and beat Bobrovsky with a wrister from the slot on the power play for a 2-1 game. The hosts Matt Calvert was in the box for that score. Montreal went to the power play again when Jared Boll was booked for a high stick, and Subbans one-timer from the high slot tied the game with 5:36 to play. Brandon Dubinsky then went off ffor boarding and the Canadiens completed the comeback with 4:37 remaining. Ray-Ray Armstrong Jersey. Tomas Plekanec skated in from the right boards and Pacioretty redirected his pass over the glove of Bobrovsky for a 3-2 lead. Connauton opened the scoring for Columbus on a slap shot past a screened Price from the left point 3:31 into the contest. With five minutes to play in the first period, Brendan Gallagher crashed the net and deflected Plekanecs shot over the pad of Bobrovsky. The puck hit the post and fluttered on top of the goal line before Bobrovsky kicked it out with his skate. After the play was reviewed, it was ruled not to be a goal because never fully crossed the goal line.
