Two teams in need of strong goaltending and defensive performances face off Sunday as the Montreal Canadiens conclude their season-opening three-game road trip against the New York Rangers. Both clubs were on the wrong end of lopsided affairs on Saturday, leaving New York still in search of its first victory of the campaign.

The Rangers put on the better showing despite surrendering eight goals in their loss at Toronto, as they rallied from a 5-1 deficit to forge a tie before yielding three tallies in the third period.

New York has given up 12 goals in losing its first two games of 2017-18, with Henrik Lundqvist being victimized for eight - including five in the opening period on Saturday.

Like Lundqvist, Carey Price lasted only 20 minutes as he surrendered four goals - three to Alex Ovechkin, who finished with four - on 14 shots in Montreal's 6-1 setback at Washington.

Bovada has the Rangers favorites at 115-moneyline with the total sitting at 5½ at MyBookie.
