New York — The way has been different than the day before, but the result was the same, while the Canadian has suffered a second defeat in a row, a defeat of 2-0 in the face of the New York Rangers on Sunday.
The club has provided a better effort than the day before, when she had cashed a thawed 6-1 at the hands of the Washington Capitals. However, the offensive has been anemic.
Brady Skjei and Mika Zibanejad have hit the target for the Rangers, who have signed a first victory in three outings this season and have bounced back after suffering a reverse of 8-5 in the face of the Toronto Maple Leafs on Saturday.
“We’ve done a lot of good things, but in the end, he must find a way to score goals,” said the head coach of the Canadian, Claude Julien. We create opportunities, but we need to better finish around the net. We have better things on Saturday and that is to continue to build with the intention to improve. “
As Carey Price, Henrik Lundqvist had played only 20 minutes the day before. And like last spring, it is the guardian of the Rangers who had the best, pushing away 34 shots to sign a 62nd shutout in his career.
Price, who had won his eight previous matches in the regular season in the face of the Rangers, stopped 23 shots.
The first period was particularly frustrating for the Canadian, who has grown twice having to open the scoring.
At the first opportunity, Andrew Shaw has used his skate to send the puck in front of the net, and then goalie Henrik Lundqvist has unintentionally pushed himself to be the drive behind the goal line with his glove. Under rule 49.2 (i) of the NHL : “A puck that was pushed by a motion of kicking with the skate and deflects on the body of a player of both teams (including the goalkeeper) may not be considered as a goal “.
The second time, it is the coach of the Rangers Alain Vigneault, who has asked for a verification video after the shot of the tip of Shea Weber had rebounded against Lundqvist and then against his defender Ryan McDonagh before reaching the goal. The catch is that the attacker of the Canadian Max Pacioretty came in contact with Lundqvist on the sequence and the order was also refused.
“We have pierced the defensive a few times, but what are these goals that have been cancelled, noted Julien. We have performed several shots at the net and there were washers free. Now, it is necessary to jump on these washers free. We spent a lot of time in the enemy territory, but we have not marked. “
What was supposed to happen happened, and this is finally the Rangers have opened the scoring with 2:35 to make the first twenty. The delivery of Skjei to the front of the net was deflected off the skate of Shea Weber before crossing the goal line.
The second period was the case of the two keepers, and then Zibanejad has delivered the coup de grace at 9:13 in the final third. Pavel Buchnevich has won his battle behind the net with Jeff Petry, and then joined his team-mate by myself before. Price has been taken against the foot on the sequence.
The Habs did so three goals to the counter in three games, if we exclude the one of Jonathan Drouin in the shootout in the victory of 3-2 to face the Buffalo Sabres last Thursday. Only one of these three goals has been scored five-on-five — the other two were listed in numerical inferiority.
The men of Claude Julien have not yet played with the advance since the beginning of the season.
The Canadian team will play its home opener on Tuesday, when the Chicago black hawks will be visiting the Bell Centre.
