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 got the crowd into the game early as Andrei Markov and Alex Kovalev scored during on first two power play opportunities for Montreal.
But the Rangers completely turned the tables on the Canadiens after a soft goal by Michal Roszival passed goaltender Cristobal Huet.
Montreal passed on a great chance to get even closer to the Ottawa Senators in the standings.
