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.
