prustwinner
The New York Rangers (36-13-5) defeated the Washington Capitals (28-22-5) by the score of 3-2, today. For a boxscore and recap go to Yahoo! Sports.

…no matter what the test, this Rangers team steps up to the plate with no excuses. Two games in less than 24 hours no problem. The Rangers still outworked a Capitals team that hadn’t played since Thursday. 14-1-3 in back-to-backs this season. Unreal.

…had no idea Prust hadn’t scored since October, man that must have been a relief.

…running out of adjectives to describe Callahan.

…didn’t realize McD had those kind of offensive moves in him. Needs to work on the landing though. I thought for sure he blew out his hamstring. Five blocked shots to go along with that goal.

…another tough night at the office for Ovechkin matched up against Girardi.

…Lundqvist doesn’t need help too often back there, but the today the goal post was his best friend.

…i’ve given Boyle a tough time this season, but he’s been one of the Rangers best players since the All Star break. 2g, 2a and doing all the small things that help a team be successful including winning 13 of 20 faceoffs today.

…this will be my only compliment of an opponent in my post game thoughts all year, I absolutely love the old school Capital jerseys. They need to bring those back permanently.

…guess it was too much to ask for the Rangers to score power play goals in consecutive games.

…great to see Staal get his first point of the season. Hopefully it’ll be something for him to build on.

…hasn’t been the best year for Dubinsky offensively, but that was a sweet pass on the Prust goal.

…if you blinked during the game you would have thought Bickel and Rupp didn’t play.

…off tomorrow then in Boston on Tuesday.

The New York Rangers defeated the Washington Capitals by the score of 3-2, today. The Capitals now lead their Eastern Conference Quarterfinal matchup 2-1. For a recap and box score go to Yahoo! Sports and newyorkrangers.com.

…we have a series folks!!!! Not sure why it took two games for them to find the formula that’s worked all year but better late than never I guess.

…and setting the tone right away was the Avery-Boyle-Prust line. They pretty much announced right off the bat this this was going to be a different Rangers team than the Caps had seen so far in the series. Torts got away from Avery late, but now is not the time to complain.

…apparently all you need to snap out of a funk is a porn star moustache. Biggest goal of Dubinsky’s young career.

…the reason you have vets like Prospal on the team are for playoff games like this. He’s been there, knows what it takes and is in the right place t score a big time goal tonight.

…goals like that from EC make me more mad than happy. Please use that amazing wrist shot more often!!!!

…defense did an outstanding job of pinching today and keeping numerous pucks in the offensive zone. Haven’t seen that much offense being initiated by the Rangers defensemen all year. Really liking Gilroy’s game right now.

…between the missed shot on the 5-on-3 and the penalty late in the third that lead to Knuble’s goal Gaborik is lucky the Rangers won today because he would have been the goat big time.

…if the Rangers had any semblance of a power play they’d make life a lot easier for themselves in these close games.

…not a ridiculous amount of work for Hank today, but he was there when needed.

…15 of 19 in the faceoff circle for Drury. No, he’s not needed. That’s sarcasm folks.

…got to assume the players fed off the energy of the Garden Faithful because MSG was rocking.

…the series takes Monday and Tuesday off and then right back at it on Wednesday for Game 4.
