The main thing with Montreal is that they've been making it really hard for other teams to get pucks to the front of the net cleanly. You'll see at least 4 guys sitting in front of their goalie, so the Rangers have to figure out how to get them out of position. Auld isn't that great but when he doesn't have to move to make a save, then yeah he's hard to beat. Rangers gotta move the puck well enough to get the whole Habs team moving, and not make careless offensive zone turnovers that let the Habs break it out quickly the other way.

And if they're going to crash the net, pucks absolutely have to get through and not get blocked up high.

e: I hope Dubinsky and Subaan go
