The Rangers are going into Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Final with a major edge on the Canadians in an effort to reach their first Stanley Cup Finals in 20 years.
The Blueshirts scored early and often against Montreal and powered their way to a 7-2 win on the road Saturday.
If the Canadiens were planning a comeback Monday night, they'll have to do it without their star goalie, Carey Price.
Price was injured early in the second period of Game 1 when Rangers forward Chris Kreider crashed into him skates-first.
Canadiens coach Michel Therrien said Monday that Price will be out for the remainder of the Eastern Conference Finals with an injury.
The injury is suspected to be a knee injury.
Game 2 is Monday night in Montreal. The puck drops at 8 p.m.
Games 3 and 4 will be on home ice Thursday and next Sunday.
It's been two years since the Rangers made it to the Eastern Conference Finals. The Devils beat them in the Eastern Conference Finals in 2012.
