Montreal Canadiens vs. New York Rangers: Biggest Takeaways from Game 4
Seth Wenig/Associated Press

The New York Rangers were in danger of letting the huge advantage they had gained in Montreal slip away.

The Rangers had seized control of their Eastern Conference Final series with back-to-back wins over the Montreal Canadiens at the Bell Center to start the series. However, they had lost Game 3 at Madison Square Garden and Game 4 was tied after 60 minutes. If they lost a second consecutive home overtime game, the Canadiens would have the momentum.

That's when Martin St. Louis decided enough was enough. The diminutive sniper ended matters with a brilliant shot into the top corner of the net a little more than six minutes into overtime.

The shot gave the Rangers a 3-2 victory and a 3-1 lead in the series, and it has left the Canadiens teetering on the brink of elimination.

Here's a look at the key takeaways from Game 4 of the series.
