Rangers advance with win over Capitals

May 13th, 2013 in News

WASHINGTON - Led by Henrik Lundqvist's 35 saves in a second consecutive shutout, and goals from some unlikely sources, New York beat Washington in Game 7 to reach the Eastern Conference semifinals.

New York contained Alex Ovechkin again and completed its comeback after trailing in the series 2-0 and 3-2 - the latest in Washington's long history of playoff collapses.

Sixth-seeded New York faces No. 4 Boston in the second round.

It is the first time New York won a Game 7 on the road in its history.

Arron Asham put New York ahead in the first period, before Taylor Pyatt and Michael Del Zotto made it 3-0 early in the second on goals 2:10 apart.
