Rangers Have A Chance To Advance To Eastern Conference Finals On Wednesday

By defeating the Washington Capital 3-2 in OT, the Rangers now lead the series 3-2 and can wrap it up with a win in Washington.

The Washington Capitals must be a down team right now, only a few seconds away from a regulation win but Brad Richards scored on the pp to send the game to OT.

Then Marc Staal scored early in the OT, again on a pp for the win.

The Capitals’ Joel Ward took a double minor for high-sticking late in the 3rd period and the Rangers took full advantage of the penalty.

Watch the Richard tying goal late in the 3rd period below…

Caps will just have to suck it up, either way whether they won or lost last night they had to win back in Washington to advance. Now is the time to take it one game at a time.
