Rangers Hang On, Beat Capitals 2-1
The New York Rangers must have a thing for dramatics. After a hard fought game seven against the Washington Capitals, they are moving on the Eastern Conference finals.
Let the celebration begin! Ranger fans can finally take a breath. After another back and fourth series, the NY Rangers come out on top once again. Their goalie Henrik Lundqvist was clutch for them when he needed to be, and now they are one step closer to another Stanley Cup.
The Rangers went up by two goals when the Capitals got right back into it in the third. At that point it was a matter of holding them off to avoid a tie to send the game into OT. What would a game seven be if you didn’t have a few heart attacks though?
Another hug victory for the New York Rangers, and they now get set to face the New Jersey Devils in the conference finals. Game one will be Monday night from Madison Square Garden.
