The Montreal Canadiens will try to stave off elimination in front of their 21,273 faithful at the Bell Centre when they host the New York Rangers in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Final. Oklahoma City Thunder Jerseys . You can listen to the game live on TSN Radio 690 in Montreal or on TSN.ca/Montreal. Also, TSN.ca features live streaming of the post-game news conferences from the Bell Centre. The Rangers grabbed a 3-1 lead in the Eastern Conference Final after Sundays 3-2 overtime victory against the visiting Habs. Martin St. Louis scored at 6:02 of the extra session to help New York take a commanding lead in the best-of-seven set and the Blueshirts hope to close out the series with another win in Montreal. A victory tonight would put the Rangers in the Stanley Cup Final for the first time since 1994 when Mark Messier led the team past the Vancouver Canucks for its most recent championship. "Weve got to take things one period at a time," said Canadiens forward Tomas Plekanec. "The last step for the Rangers is the toughest one to make. Were going to make it hard on them, and were going to use our crowd playing at home. Weve got to take advantage of it." Montreal hopes to stay alive Tuesday and mount a comeback in this series. The Canadiens, who last made it to the Cup Final when they won it all in 1993, have rallied from 3-1 deficits twice over the last decade, in 2004 against the Boston Bruins and against Washington in the opening round of the 2010 playoffs. "By no means are we counting ourselves out," said Habs captain Brian Gionta. "Its a tough loss, its a bitter loss, but at the end of the day were still in this series." If the Canadiens can stave off elimination Tuesday the clubs will reconvene Thursday in New York City for Game 6. Montreal won a 3-2 overtime decision in Game 3 at New York, but the Rangers were the ones celebrating at the end of Sundays OT battle. The Habs tried to clear the puck out of the zone at the left point with several bodies fighting there, but Carl Hagelin was able to keep it in and fed the puck over to the right circle. St. Louis took the pass in the clear and picked his spot, firing a high shot over Dustin Tokarski for the win and a 3-1 lead in the series. "I was tired at the time and I was just hoping hed end the game," said Hagelin. "He did, it was a great shot by him. He didnt have much to shoot at, but he found the spot over the glove." It was the fourth playoff overtime winner of St. Louis career, tying him for the lead among active players with Jaromir Jagr, Patrick Kane and Patrick Marleau. Hagelin posted a goal and an assist, while Derick Brassard, who had missed the previous two games with an upper-body injury, returned to play and added a goal for the Rangers, who saw Henrik Lundqvist make 27 saves in the win. Francis Bouillon and P.K. Subban scored for the Canadiens, while Tokarski stopped 26 shots in the loss. The Rangers, and St. Louis in particular, were having a frustrating time trying to get the puck past Tokarski, who has been spectacular, while starting Games 2, 3 and 4 in place of injured No. 1 Carey Price. St. Louis had five shots on the young netminder without a goal in Game 3 and he scored the winning goal Sunday on his fifth shot of the night. Late in the second period of Game 4, Tokarski snapped his glove hand to rob St. Louis on a breakaway, but in the extra session the Habs goalie wasnt quick enough to deny the veteran winger. "It was a good hockey game and its just unfortunate that we were on the losing end," said Tokarski. "He had a little time with the puck and picked a corner, I just couldnt get it. The only thing Im going to think about now is coming back on Tuesday and winning that game." Montreal, meanwhile, hopes to help out its goalie by being more opportunistic on offence. The Canadiens scored on just one of eight power-play opportunities in Game 4 and are just 1-for-17 with the man advantage in this series. "We had the opportunity on the power play and we didnt take advantage of it," said Canadiens head coach Michel Therrien. The Rangers hope to have Derek Stepan back in the lineup Tuesday after he sat out Game 4 with a broken jaw suffered on a hit from Montreals Brandon Prust in Game 3. Stepan made the trip to Montreal and skated on Tuesday morning wearing a full face guard on a line with Chris Kreider and Rick Nash. Rangers forward J.T. Miller, who suffered an upper-body injury in the second period on Sunday and did not return, did not travel with the team for Game 5. Prust is serving the second part of a two-game suspension tonight for his hit on Stepan. New York can split the all-time tie in playoff meetings against the Habs with a victory tonight. These clubs have split 14 postseason encounters, with the Rangers winning the last matchup in the opening round of the 1996 playoffs. New York is 6-3 as the road team in this postseason and won Games 1 and 2 of this series at the Bell Centre. The Rangers have won four straight road games and havent lost away from home since dropping Game 2 of the second round in Pittsburgh on May 4. The Habs are 4-3 at the Bell Centre in this postseason.

On Thursday, a judge said Varlamov could be released if he posted $5,000 bond and be allowed to travel with the team but he was ordered to stay away from his girlfriend, among other restrictions. http://www.authenticthunderauthority.com/paul-george-thunder-jersey-c-25/ .

JOHNS, N.L. - JC Lipon scored two goals to propel the St. Johns IceCaps to a 5-1 win over the Portland Pirates Wednesday night in American Hockey League action. Jerome Samson, Jason Jaffray and Andrew Gordon also scored for the IceCaps (37-19-4). Mathieu Brodeur replied for the Pirates (21-29-10). St. Johns opened the scoring when Gordon threw the puck out front while tangled up in the boards, and it found its way into the net off a skate 5:19 into the second period. Adam Lowry passed to Lipon on a 2-on-1 rush, and the IceCaps forward made no mistake, burying the puck top glove on a hard wrist shot 6:54 into the second period. Samson added another for St. Johns, on the power play, backhanding home the puck short-side after grrabbing it off an end-board bounce out front at the 9:48 mark of the third period. Terrance Ferguson Jersey. The IceCaps extended the lead at the 10:38 mark of the second period when Adam Lowry won the draw clean to Lipon, who fired a quick one-time wrist shot. Just 34 seconds into the third, Portland found the scoresheet when trailing defenceman Mathieu Brodeur wired a shot from just inside the left face-off circle to beat a sprawling Michael Hutchinson high blocker. IceCaps forward Patrice Cormier sent a cross-crease feed across to Jaffray, who was wide-open on his way to the net. Jaffray scored high on a backhand 8:43 into the third period on the power play. Hutchinson made 27 saves for the IceCaps. Mark Visentin stopped 32.
