Washington Capitals and New York Rangers

 The opening period of the Sunday game between the Capitals and Rangers was pretty scrappy, with the teams trying to assert a promince by pushing, bumping and shoving. There was very little good offensive play. A delayed penalty was meted out to Rangers’ Matt Gilroy at 15:10 and New York had a 5-3 advantage from 17-55 to 19:55, but the period ended scoreless. Henrik Lindqvist made a marvelous save 2 minutes into the second. There was a delay in play when one of the officials was injured and had to be replaced. New York’s Erik Christensen scored on a power play at 5:30 to start the scoring. There was a lot of scrappy play with very little good hockey. At 19:00 Alex Ovechkin scored to tie the game. Ovechkin tips one in the dying seconds of the second, but a review said the puck crossed the line at 000. John Tortorella stomped out livid. Vinny Prospal scores for New York at 8:01 to put the rangers up 2:1. Ovechkin  makes a long shot to Mike Knuble and he scores for Washington at 14:48. At 18:21 Brandon Dubinsky scores on a backhand and New York winds up with a 3-2 victory. A very rough game that was difficult to follow. I have heard from people, that watched on a big screen, that Gaborik’s puck at the end of the second, definitely beat the 00.0 time on the clock.
