Post e-timer. Sam Carric scored twice for Toronto, w
MONTREAL -- Montreal may have lost more than just the opening game of the series. With the Rangers already leading 2-0, Carey Price was taken down early in the second period of New Yorks 7-2 pounding of the Canadiens in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference final on Saturday afternoon. At 3:15 of the second, winger Chris Kreider blew past defenceman Alexei Emelin in the offensive zone to force a breakaway. Kreider lost his balance as he shot the puck, missed the net, and slid skate-first into the Canadiens netminder. Price spent more than 10 seconds lying on the ice clutching his right leg after the hit, and was visibly shaken when he finally got up. He spoke to a member of Montreals medical staff for several seconds after the play, but remained in the game, giving up two more goals before the second intermission. He watched the third period from the bench. "There was no reason to put Carey back in the third," said Habs coach Michel Therrien. "It was just to protect him. You never want to see your goaltender spread out on the ice. But the fact that he didnt play in the third period is unrelated." Therrien and several Canadiens players were convinced Kreiders hit on Price was accidental. There was no penalty call on the play. "It wasnt really sitting for me, so I had my head down trying to settle the puck," said Kreider, who scored the game-winning goal late in the second period. "I put it wide and somehow lost my footing. I thought maybe someone pressured me from behind. I seem to have an issue staying on my feet on those. "I went in skates-first and I just had too much momentum and couldnt really avoid him. It didnt feel too good for me either." Despite brushing off any injury concerns, Therrien refused to answer whether Price would definitely get the start in Game 2 of the series on Monday. "The fact that he didnt play in the third period was more to protect him than anything," repeated Therrien. "We were not sharp in front of him." "You dont want to see that," added Rene Bourque, who kept the Canadiens in the game with his team-leading fifth goal of the playoffs at 12:38 of the second. "Intentional? I dont think so. Hes our best player. It was scary to see. Hopefully hes all right." Price gave up four goals on 20 shots after two periods, including two in less than a minute to end the second period, lowering his post-season save percentage from .926 to .919. The score was 4-1 Rangers at the interval. Montreals frustration showed at the start of the third. The Canadiens took four minor penalties in the first three minutes, and the Rangers welcomed Peter Budaj into the game with three power-play goals on their first four shots. Prior to this one, the Rangers had scored eight goals in their last 10 games at the Bell Centre, dating back to Oct. 2009. And this year, Montreal and New York combined for four goals in three regular-season matchups. But Saturdays game was a real barnburner. The Rangers quieted the sold-out Bell Centre crowd within minutes of the puck drop. Martin St. Louis, after an emotional week during which he lost his mother, opened the score at 4:35 of the first. Mats Zuccarello added another 1:51 later. The Rangers scored twice in 49 seconds to end the second period, and added two more in 25 seconds to open the third. Between the end of the second and start of the final frame, the Rangers scored five times in 5:37, an ignominious post-season record for the five quickest goals allowed by the Canadiens. "Good thing its a seven-game series because we have a chance to get back into it," said Bourque. "We have to be better from the puck drop. We had a little bit of an emotional letdown after the Boston series. We talked about that going into the game. Obviously it didnt click. We have to just forget about this game." This is the 15th playoff meeting between the Canadiens and Rangers. The series is split 7-7. Notes: The Habs have not advanced to the Stanley Cup Final since 1993, when they last hoisted the Cup. a New York coach Alain Vigneault coached Montreal for four seasons between 1997 and 2001. a Henrik Lundqvist has made a team-record 81 consecutive playoff starts for the Rangers. The New York netminder had lost his last four contests at the Bell Centre dating back to March 17, 2009. ... Ryan McDonagh tied a Rangers playoff record with four points in one game by a defenceman. a The Rangers are now 8-2 when scoring first in these playoffs. De Anthony Thomas Jersey .

Brennan scored a goal and assisted on another and Drew MacIntyre stopped 28 shots as the Toronto Marlies beat the Milwaukee Admirals 6-2 on Friday night for a 1-0 lead in their American Hockey League first-round playoff series. Brennans unassisted goal at 18:55 of the second period came just 68 seconds after Milwaukee had pulled to within 2-1 on Patrick Cehlins one-timer. Sam Carrick scored twice for Toronto, while Josh Leivo, Kenny Ryan and Jerry DAmigo added singles. Milwaukees first power play lasted just five seconds before Taylor Beck was called for high sticking to create 4-on-4 hockey. The Marlies took advantage, as Carrick took a loose puck from the back wall and had all day to pull out to the right post and beat Admirals goaltender Marek Mazenec at 17:46. The Marlies mmade it 2-0 with a power-play goal just 1:55 into the second.dddddddddddd. With Charles-Olivier Roussel off for interference, Leivo walked in from the left point and unleashed a wrist shot that bounced in off the right post. After Cehlins goal at 17:47, Brennan stopped an attempted clearing pass near the right point and his shot appeared to go in off the body of Milwaukee defender Bryan Rodney near the left post at 18:55. Toronto pushed it to 4-1 at 46 seconds of the third period on a goal by DAmigo. Milwaukee cut it to 4-2 on a power-play goal by Filip Forsberg, but couldnt get any closer. Ryan and Sam Carrick each added an empty-net goal in the closing minutes. Game 2 is Saturday night at the BMO Harris Bradley Center before the five-game series returns to conclude in Toronto.
