How to watch Rangers vs. Canadiens Game 2 online, TV schedule and preview

The Canadiens are without goaltender Carey Price, so it'll be an uphill battle as they try to even this Eastern Conference Final series with the New York Rangers at 1-1.

SB Nation 2014 NHL Playoff Bracket

The New York Rangers rolled over the Montreal Canadiens in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Final on Saturday -- both literally and figuratively.

The score said 7-2 when all things were said and done, but aside from the score and the obviously important 1-0 series lead the Rangers grabbed, it might be Chris Kreider literally rolling over Habs goaltender Carey Price that ultimately turns this series in New York's favor.

No matter what frustrated Canadiens coach Michel Therrien said to the media about the incident, Kreider certainly didn't mean to injure Price, as he got tripped up, lost his balance and fell awkwardly into Price's knee while crashing the net during Game 1. But the impact of that play will be far reaching -- Price is the Canadiens most important player and arguably the reason they're even in the Conference Final -- and it all starts in Game 2.

It looks like Dustin Tokarski will be in goal for the Canadiens. He has no Stanley Cup Playoff experience under his belt and has only played 10 games in the NHL total. He's a question mark in a huge game, to say the least.

The Rangers will go with Henrik Lundqvist in goal, as usual, and after pouring it on with seven goals in Game 1, they're not looking like a team with many weaknesses right now. In their last 13 tries when holding a series lead, the Rangers have been unable to win a playoff game, a streak they can change tonight in Montreal.
