Will The Rangers Have Any Gas Left?

from Bob McKenzie of TSN,

The big money guys came through for the New York Rangers in the end as they beat the Washington Capitals 2-1 in triple overtime.

The question now becomes whether this might cost them down the road if this series becomes a long one.

For both teams, you don’t know how they are going to respond to such a long overtime. Triple-Overtime - this was the longest game of the year.

For the Rangers in particular, it maybe makes you ask,“did they win the battle but lose the war of attrition?”

When you look at the minutes logged, Ryan Mcdonagh had over 53 minutes of ice time.

In fact when you look at all of the Rangers’ top four defencemen, McDonagh, Staal, Girardi, Del Zotto, they all played more minutes than Dennis Wideman who was the top guy for the Washington Capitals.
