Rangers: Defenseman Anton Stralman does not necessarily score often---in fact he has just 15 goals in 281 career games. But when Stralman does score, there's a good chance it's against the Canadiens. The former Maple Leaf and Blue Jackets defenseman has scored four career goals against Montreal in ten games including the Rangers lone tally in last Tuesday's 3-1 loss to the Canadiens at The Garden.
Canadiens: The Bell Centre has been a House of Horrors for the Rangers in recent years. In fact, the Canadiens have not lost on home ice to the Rangers since March 17, 2009---a 4-3 shootout victory for the visitors. The Canadiens have won six straight since then against the Rangers at the Bell Centre, including a pair of shutouts. And last season MOntreal outscored the Rangers 8-1 in two games at the Bell Centre.
