Rangers vs. Canadiens Preview: Breaking Down the Big Guns

On Tuesday, the New York Rangers hosted the Montreal Canadiens in what was the most boring hockey game in the history of the world.

Montreal didn't register a shot on goal until around the four-minute mark. They also had to have come horrifyingly close to breaking the record for most icings in a single game in NHL history.

The Rangers, on the other hand, seemed to do nothing but bang their head repeatedly against the proverbial wall which was the Canadiens' neutral zone trap.

Rangers coach John Tortorella said, "It’s probably one of the worst hockey games I’ve been a part of, both teams" (h/t New York Daily News).

It certainly was a doozy.

What's even more exciting is that we get a rematch on Saturday in Montreal, so be sure to mark that one on your calendar.

In all seriousness, though, we're going to preview that game by taking a look at both teams' star players at each position. 

Take note, though, that Rick Nash will not be included because he did not travel with the Rangers to Ottawa for their game on Thursday night, and it is unsure whether or not he will join the team in Montreal on Saturday.
