MONTREAL -- Rene Bourque scored three goals as the Montreal Canadiens chased goalie Henrik Lundqvist and defeated the New York Rangers 7-4 on Tuesday to stave off elimination in the NHL Eastern Conference final. The Rangers, who lead the best-of-seven series 3-2, will have another chance to book a trip to the Stanley Cup final in Game 6 on Thursday night in New York. Bourques second goal proved to be the game-winner and came just after the Rangers came back to tie the game at 4-4 in the second period. "Everybody was ready for this game," said Bourque. "We knew the situation. We got a big power-play goal early and a few others. "It was just a see-saw battle back and forth. (Dale) Weise made a great play to me. I called for the puck and somehow it got through. It was nice to get in there." Alex Galchenyuk, Tomas Plekanec and Max Pacioretty also scored for Montreal, which outshot the Rangers 28-27 Derek Stepan, playing with a guard on his helmet to protect a broken jaw suffered from a Brandon Prust hit in Game 3, returned to the lineup to score twice for the Rangers. Chris Kreider had a goal and three assists and Rick Nash also scored. "It was just a strange game," said Rangers coach Alain Vigneault. "It was a different game from what weve seen so far in the series, but now were going home." At 10:41 of the third, Rangers defenceman John Moore was given a major penalty and was ejected for a blindside, open ice hit on Dale Weise that was almost identical to Prusts hit on Stepan. Weise was wobbly when he got up and went for treatment, but returned to the bench late in the period. "The league will do what it has to do," Vigneault said of the hit. "John is not the type of person who would try to hurt someone, but it was a late hit." It was a night of strange bounces and spotty goaltending, even if New Yorks best chance of the game saw Carl Hagelins shot stopped by the end of Dustin Tokarskis stick midway through the first period. Lundqvist was pulled in favour of Cam Talbot after allowing four goals on 18 shots, while Tokarski stayed in despite allowing four on his first 14. Tokarski was especially strong in the third period through a string of New York power plays. "Everybody talks about how (Lundqvist) is a great goalie: Has he been better than (Tokarski) this series?" asked Bourque. "I dont think so. "(Tokarski) made some big saves for us too. We had a couple bad bounces but our power play was the difference. We got some traction, got a couple goals in tight." The Rangers did a good job of cancelling the initial rush Montreal gets from its pre-game buildup in winning the opening two games of the series, but Ginette Renos O Canada worked to plan this time. Only 22 seconds in, Kreider was sent off for tripping and the Canadiens converted when Galchenyuk tipped in P.K. Subbans point shot from the edge of the crease at 1:48. Stepan tied it at 10:44 of the first on a 30-foot shot off a rush that fooled Tokarski. Plekanec restored the lead with a similar goal at 12:24 as he swiped the puck between two defenders and saw it beat Lundqvist. The second period was a festival of goals. Pacioretty got it started on a gritty feed from Brendan Gallagher at 3:44 and Bourque gave Montreal a three-goal lead when he spun and scored from close range. That chased Lundqvist. Nash whipped a puck at the Montreal net and saw it go in off defenceman Andrei Markovs skate 9:48, Stepan got his second in a mass scramble in front of Tokarski at 12:06 and Kreider tied it on a power play at 14:12 on a tic-tac-toe play after Subban lost his stick. The Bell Centre went quiet, but exploded again when Bourque got his second at 15:10 as he beat Talbot from 10 feet out. Several hats were thrown on the ice after Weise sent Bourque in alone to get his third of the game 6:33 into the third period. Desharnais scored into an empty net during a New York power play at 15:43 and crowd sang Ole Ole in celebration. "I think youre starting to see us playing Montreal Canadiens hockey," said Pacioretty. "I dont think youve really seen it in this series just yet. It was great to see a little taste of it. I think we still have more. I think we still have little things to work on. And it should be a fun one going back there." Notes: Canadiens defenceman Alexei Emelin, who appears to have been playing on bad knee, sat out with an undisclosed injury. Rookie Nathan Beaulieu played on the third pairing, while Mike Weaver moved onto the second pair with Andrei Markov. . .

PETERSBURG, Fla.HOUSTON -- Case Keenum will start at quarterback in place of a healthy Matt Schaub when the Texans host division foe Indianapolis on Sunday night. Coach Gary Kubiak announced the decision Monday and said he had decided before the bye weekend to give Keenum a second straight start as the Texans try to end a five-game losing streak. Kubiak said the decision was not for the rest of the season, but is geared toward trying to keep the team going in the right direction following a close 17-16 loss to Kansas City in which Keenum played well. "Ive got to make decisions I think are best for the football team right now," Kubiak said. "The decision I made was based on what I saw take place last week with Case and him taking advantage of an opportunity. I want to see him move forward." Keenum saw the first game action of his two-year career in the loss to the Chiefs. Teammates pointed to the energy he brought to the field while going 15 for 25 for 271 yards and a touchdown. "I thought we went out and played better football and thats why we had a chance to win in Kansas City," Kubiak said. "I thought (Keenum) did some really good things. Hes got to improve. This football teams got to improve around him." Keenum said he needs to "get better in a lot of things," including making reads and picking up the types of blitzes he saw in the fourth quarter against Kansas City. "I imagine well see it again," Keenum said of the pressure. "You put it on film and people see it. So correcting that is going to be big time." Schaub, a seven-year veteran who was handpicked by Kubiak to replace David Carr inn 2007, got off to a rough start leading the team to a 2-4 record before leaving a loss to the St.dddddddddddd Louis Rams with an ankle injury. "Its obviously very disappointing with all weve been through here and all weve done, but Im part of the reason were in this situation as a football team," Schaub said. "As a player and a competitor, I dont like it and I want to be out there. Obviously, I havent played up to my standards this year. I think thats where it mostly stems from." Schaub was back at practice Monday, but Keenum will get the reins of the offence knowing that hes starting not for injury reasons, but for his play on the field. Now he will get the chance to show it in front of the hometown fans. "I imagine Ill have a few more goose bumps than I did last week," said Keenum, who starred at the University of Houston. "To play in Houston, to play at Reliant . I know Sunday nights going to be very special. Who will line up behind Keenum is still in question. Starting running back Arian Foster (hamstring) worked only with the trainers Monday and Ben Tate (ribs) missed practice altogether. "Im very concerned," Kubiak said. "I dont think were going to know anything until later this week. I think theyre both giving us everything they can to try and play this week." With both players out, running backs Deji Karim, Dennis Johnson and Ray Graham are working with the Texans this week. Notes: Linebackers Tavares Gooden and Jeff Tarpinian practiced with the team for the first time Monday since signing . Right guard Wade Smith was out with a knee injury. cheap jerseys wholesale jerseys wholesale jerseys cheap nfl jerseys cheap jerseys Danny Rose Jersey ' ' '
