Washington Capitals (27-18-3)
New York Rangers (26-18-4)
Exactly one year ago on Sunday, the New York Rangers eliminated the Washington Capitals from the Stanley Cup playoffs with a 2-1 win at Madison Square Garden in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference semifinal series between the two teams.
A year later, the Caps have a chance to return the favor in the same building.
The Capitals’ thrilling 2-1 overtime win in Friday’s Game 5 of the Eastern Conference quarterfinal series with the Rangers puts Washington in a position to end the series with a win on Sunday in New York. The Rangers are seeking to force a Game 7, which would be played on Monday in Washington if necessary.
Didn't you know, the following goals don't count;
Soft goals allowed by Lundqvist
PP goals by the Caps since they are better at it
OT goals by the Caps because 2 shots over 30 mins by the Rangers in both OT games displayed their dominance
Feeling confident. Really, the only way I wouldn't is if we play like in game 4, which I wouldn't expect to happen 2/3 games. Expecting to see the officiating be brutal and the Rags have 2x more PP's than the Caps (again).
