Rangers get early advantage on Canadiens

You think about everything that was supposedly preordained before the puck dropped in Game 1 of this series between the Rangers and Montreal Canadiens, and an opening goal from Tanner Glass and a 31-save, 2-0 shutout for Henrik Lundqvist definitely ranked high on the list of improbabilities. Price was solid as well with 29 saves, but the one goal allowed made the difference.

It all started on Wednesday night with a spectacular opening montage on CBC celebrating the return of five Canadian teams into the playoffs, something that was sorely lacking last season.

But 98 hits in a 60-minute contest?

Kampfer was obtained as part of an early season trade that sent the Rangers' first-round pick from 2010, Dylan McIlrath, to the Panthers.

Said Rangers defenseman Brendan Smith: "We're going to see a different beast next game".

Susan Rice may have committed a crime, Trump says without providing evidence
She called the unmasking process routine and said she only did it when it pertained to matters of national security. Rice has said that the pace of intelligence reports on Russian meddling increased beginning in the summer of 2016.

"The fact we have flower [Fleury] and Matt, I think gives us a comfort level because we know they are both No. 1 goalies", said Penguins coach Mike Sullivan after the game. "We had some good looks, there were some loose pucks and it's just about winning those battles for loose pucks and making sure you bounce on them and finish them off".

Blackhawks: Center Artem Anisimov practiced for the first time since a March 14 foot injury and will play Thursday in Game 1 against the Predators. The Blueshirts performance in Game One was much more reminiscent of their playoff successes in 2014 and 2015, starting from their goaltender on out.

The heavy wrist shot came and Lundqvist kicked it aside with a lightning-quick reaction. While Price played very well for the Canadiens, Lundqvist was the best player on the ice on Wednesday night.

"It was a great save", said Weber. When I start deviating from my game is when I get in trouble. "As long as I know it, I give them what's necessary because a player who overthinks is skating in mud by the time he gets on the ice". Price had a 2.27 goals-against average and a.922 save percentage in those matchups and is 15-5-1 with a 1.82 GAA and.940 save percentage in his career against the Rangers. "It was a good shot". "I had butterflies for two days". But we're going to hope that at the same time some bounces go our way. "We're just going to have to make the best of every opportunity we get at the other end".

Stockholm suspect was failed asylum-seeker; 2nd man arrested
The British man, Chris Bevington, was a director with the music streaming service Spotify and lived in Stockholm with his family. Police said they were investigating the second suspect for a "terrorist crime [by committing] murder".

He led, the Rangers followed.

The idea is to create a favourable matchup against New York's bottom two lines - since Julien rolled all four lines deep into Game 1 - but the side effect is that it also inherently makes Montreal's top two lines less potent. Coach Claude Julien said Pacioretty is expected to play.

Mission accomplished-and that much was potentially foreseeable after the Rangers put together the NHL's best road record this season. As an individual, and as a line, we've got to be better getting those chances.

Playoff hockey has a way of transforming the city, both figuratively and literally. He also scored his fifth overtime goal of the season to win the game. "They've got an incredibly passionate fan base so it's a fun place to play".

His lineup remained the same for all to see at practice - with 30-goal scorer Alex Galchenyuk still anchoring the fourth line - with Julien saying he would sleep on it before Game 2 on Friday night at the Bell Centre.

UK's Johnson cancels Moscow visit after Syria gas attack
The news agency reports that during the Friday phone call, the Saudi monarch congratulated Trump for his "courageous decision". The conversation was initiated by the American side, the statement said.

But if we failed to acknowledge it before, it's worth mentioning it now: be prepared for the unexpected.
