"Old FaithfuL"...

game on!
Assists were DS-P and Stephenson...

couple chances for each team, nothing really exciting since the goal... 3:03 left 1st, and the Caps to the PP when they come back from the TV timeout... just before the break, the Caps had a 3 on 1 but the Dman got in the way of Ovechkin's pass...

killed, but a good PP, several chances and Lundqvist was the difference...

1-0 Caps, end 1st.

Stats after 1:

SOGs 17-9 Caps
Attempts 25-13 Caps
Blocks 5-3 Rangers
Hits 6-3 Rangers
Takes 4-2 Caps
Gives 5-4 Caps
Faceoffs 71% Caps (10-4)

Lundqvist had just made a BIG stop on Vrana at 10:37, too... this team still can't play 60:00 in a row... 8:09 left, the Caps get the PP this time- need to convert here...

several shots and a post, but... killed... wow- Shattenkirk misses a clear, Ovechkin shot, Wilson deflects, Niskanen scores!!!

3-2 Caps!!!
