New-York (Rangers) wins on Super Bowl sunday.
At least one New-York team has won on Super Bowl sunday as the New-York Rangers worked on an impressive comeback to win by the score of 5-3 over the Montreal Canadiens.
A second matinee game in a row was scheduled at the Bell centre and once again it was a great occasion for the kids to attend to a NHL game with their parents. Many of them were proudly wearing their Canadiens jerseys.
The home team brought the crowd alive early on as Andrei Markov and Alex Kovalev scored during the first two power play opportunities for Montreal. Then, a goal on a penalty shot awarded to Sergei Kostitsyn gave a 3-0 lead to the Canadiens early into the second period.
But the Rangers completely turned the tables on the Canadiens after a soft goal to Michal Roszival awarded by goaltender Christobal Huet. The Rangers at the end registered five unanswered goals on a fading Montreal team. Brandon Dubinsky, Scott Gomez, Chris Drury and Martin Straka completed the scoring for the NYR.
Montreal passed on a great chance to get even closer to the Ottawa Senators in the standings. Ottawa is the next opponent for Montreal tuesday.
