Mike Green scored a power-play goal with less than 6 minutes
left to lead his team to victory. This was Green's 2nd goal of the playoffs.
Alex Ovechkin was the one who opened up the scoring as he slapped one past Henrik Lundqvist to give the Caps a 1-0 lead in the first period. Artem Anisimov scored a game early in the 2nd to tie the game. Midway through the second, Nicklas Backstrom scored to give his team the lead. The Rangers, a very resilient team, never gave up, as Marian Gaborik tied the game at 2 late in the 2nd.
Although Ovechkin scored a goal, the former Maurice Richard trophy winner still isn't seeing much ice time: the Russian forward only played 13 minutes tonight.
The Rangers only managed to get 3 shots on net in the first period. It wasn't a difficult night for Caps goalie Braden Holtby as he stopped 18 of the 20 shots
directed at him.
will take place on Monday at 7:30 p.m Eastern at the MSG.
