New York won the pivotal Game 5 in Montreal on Thursday, 3-2 in OT. The Rangers now hold a 3-2 edge in the series. They road team has won three of the five games in this series. New York is 51-29-7 overall and 22-17-4 at home while the Canadiens are 49-28-10 overall and 24-15-4 on the road.

In Game 5, the Canadiens established a 1-0 and 2-1 lead in the first period behind goals from Artturi Lehkonen and Brendan Gallagher. Jesper Fast evened the score at 1-1 for the Rangers in the first and Brady Skjei evened things up 2-2 in the second period. In overtime, Mika Zibanejad got the game-winner 14 minutes in. Both teams had 36 shots in the game and the two combined for 100 hits with Montreal getting 51 of the 100.

Bet on Canadiens vs. Rangers

These two teams have played pretty even for most of the series, which is why the odds are equal. The Rangers have managed back-to-back wins and are returning home looking to lock up the series. I do like Carey Price and have a little more confidence in him right now, but ultimately this game is in New York and the last chance for the Rangers to win this series at home. I am going to take my chances on them. When the two teams are this even, take your chances on the home team.
