The Rangers can take a commanding three games to none lead in the Eastern Conference Finals if they beat the Canadiens at Madison Square Garden tonight in Game 3.
The Blueshirts hit the Garden ice yesterday to loosen up ahead of tonight's game.
They outscored Montreal 10-3 to take the first two games of the series.
Speaking to reporters, players say they know they have to keep the pressure on.
"We understand what's at stake here. You know, this is game three and we gotta keep pushing and keep trying to win games," said Rangers Forward Martin St. Louis.
"You have to go out and be a desperate team. That's when you play your best hockey, I think," said Rangers Goaltender Henrik Lundqvist.
Game 3 is set for 8 p.m.
Game 4 will be Sunday night at Madison Square Garden.
