The Rangers picked up a big win in Game 4 of their first-round playoff series with the Canadiens Tuesday night. 

The Blueshirts struck first in the first period when right winger Jesper Fast scored his first goal of the postseason to give New York a 1-0 lead. 

Later in the second period, with the game tied, Rick Nash scored his second goal of the playoffs to give the Rangers a 2-1 lead. 

The score would hold up, and the Rangers and Canadiens are now tied at two games apiece. 

Game 5 is Thursday night in Montreal. 

The series will return to the Garden for Game 6 on Saturday.
