Rangers-Canadiens: A New York Win on Super Sunday

Francois GendronSenior Writer IFebruary 3, 2008

At least one New York team has won on Super Bowl Sunday when the Rangers had an impressive 5-3 comeback win 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 got the crowd into the game early as Andrei Markov and Alex Kovalev scored during on first two power play opportunities for Montreal.
Then, a goal on a penalty shot awarded to Sergei Kostitsyn gave Montreal a 3-0 lead early into the second period.

But the Rangers completely turned the tables on the Canadiens after a soft goal by Michal Roszival passed goaltender Cristobal Huet.
The Rangers registered five unanswered goals on a fading Montreal team. Brandon Dubinsky, Scott Gomez, Chris Drury, and Martin Straka completed the scoring for New York.

Montreal passed on a great chance to get even closer to the Ottawa Senators in the standings.
Montreal will next play Ottawa on Tuesday.
