For a full 60 minutes, neither the Caps or the Rangers scored a goal. The battle was mostly along the boards or as Pierre McGuire put it, "Behind the icing line." Seriously Pierre? The, "icing line?" No one calls it that. Technically its still the goal line. You could also call it the goal line extended like in lacrosse and no one would mock you. The icing line? No, just, no! NBC didn't stop there though, they filed a complaint that the Verizon Center was too loud. I'm proud of you Caps fans!
Anyways, 60 minutes of high octane action wouldn't cut it. The game went into OT and Mike "Game Over" Green finished off the Rangers 8 minutes into OT. Henrik Lundqvist finished the game with 37 saves and played an outstanding game. He even earned first star of the game. Some of the saves he made where something that I can't explain. However, if you want an explanation and some great entertainment, maybe @CapitalsJesus can help. This hysterical account opened up just prior to the game. It is worth a follow as it has provided me plenty of entertainment during the game.
The Caps take a commanding 2-0 lead on the series after this afternoons 1-0 OT win. The series moves to Madison Square Garden in New York City on Monday May 6th, 2013 at 7:30. I hope the guy that harassed my dad and I outside of MSG when we watched the Caps beat the Rangers 3-2 in a shootout on March 24th, 2013 is there and cries when we lose. That drunkard deserves it (haha)!
Until Next Time,
