The 2014 NHL playoff live stream and TV coverage for the NHL Eastern Conference finals continues Sunday night when the New York Rangers take on the Montreal Canadiens in Game 4 of their best-of-seven series. Just when it looked like the Rangers were ready to pounce on the struggling Canadiens, Montreal rose up in Game 3 to make this a series. Tonight's NHL live stream will have a lot more meaning for both sides no that the Habs have struck back!
According to a Sportsline report on May 26, Montreal finally broke through vs. the Rangers in their best-of-seven Easter Conference Final match-up with a 3-2 overtime win Thursday night. Alex Galchenyuk scored at the 1:12 mark in OT for the Canadiens, who now trail New York 2 games to 1.
The Canadiens were without their No. 1 goaltender Carey Price for a second straight game, however young Dustin Tokarski looked like an old veteran in net for the Habs. Tokarski stopped 35 of 37 shots in the win. Montreal head coach Michel Therrien surprised many fans with his decision to start Tokarski in Game 2 over veteran Peter Budaj, but the gamble payed off in Game 3. Now Montreal will see if they can make it two in a row over the Rangers and even this series.
Both the Canadiens and Rangers will be short-handed in tonight's key Game 4. Montreal's Brandon Prust and New York left wing Daniel Carcillo were suspended Friday by the NHL following some Game 3 rough housing. Prust put a hit on New York's Derek Stepan that got the Rangers upset at the lack of penalty time dished out. One thing it did do - it brought some intensity to this series, which should make tonight's game pretty intense!
Even though the Habs have looked better in Game 2 and Game 3, Las Vegas odds makers have the Rangers listed as a big favorite tonight in Game 4. New York is -180 with the over/under number listed at 5.
Fans can catch tonight's action on NBC Sports Network nationally and streaming live online through NBC Sports Extra starting at 8 p.m. ET. Will the Canadiens continue to climb back in this series, or will New York go up 3-1 headed back to Montreal for Game 5?
