Rangers face Canadiens looking to extend winning streak

Dec 30, 2007 - 2:28 PM Montreal (19-13-6) at NY Rangers (19-15-4) 7:00 pm EST

NEW YORK (Ticker) -- Fresh off their highest scoring game of the season, the New York Rangers head home looking for their third consecutive victory when they face the Montreal Canadiens on Sunday.

Struggling to score all season, the Rangers overcame their offensive woes in a 6-1 rout of the Toronto Maple Leafs on Saturday. Petr Prucha scored two of New York's season-high five goals on the power play and Brandon Dubinsky had a career-high three assists.

It's the last of a six-game road trip for the Canadiens, who are 2-2-1 on the trek. They have won their last two games, including a 5-1 triumph over the Florida Panthers on Friday.

Montreal is 13-6-2 overall on the road.

This is the first of four games between the teams.
