In an unexpected start, the Canadiens defense toppled after their starting goaltender and team MVP was injured from a collision with Rangers forward Chris Kreider in Game 1 on Saturday. As a result, the Rangers defeated their opponent 7-2 at the start of Eastern Conference Finals.
Montreal will have to continue against the Rangers without their best player Carey Price as the goalie. And Price's replacement will be either Budaj, 31, or No. 1 AHL netminder, Dustin Tokarski, 24. According to New York Daily News, Budaj shut out the Rangers with 27 saves last October, but he surrendered three goals on eight shots in Sunday's third period.
The Canadiens came off an emotional second-round series win against the Presidents' Trophy-winning Boston Bruins in a 4-3 series. While they were not prepared for such a turn out from Game 1, the players have expressed their determination to not end up in a 2-0 hole.
"I think it's easier to bounce back after a loss like that than a heartbreaker," forward Max Pacioretty said, according to NHL.com. "So, obviously, you don't want to throw a game like that, but we know we're still a confident group. We've got to put that one behind us and not look back.
The Rangers, on the other hand, are still riding the momentum of overcoming a 3-1 deficit in their Eastern Conference Second Round series against the Pittsburgh Penguins. They will attempt to continue the winning streak with the Penguins into the Canadiens series.
