Photo Credit: Washington Post Ladies and gentlemen, we have a series. The Rangers held serve at home, tying the series at two games apiece in the process. Now the series shifts to Washington with the Rangers knowing they can outscore Washington if need be. That is a big mental advantage for a club that is nowhere near as skilled as the Caps. The bad news is that Marc Staal is still out, and likely will be for the remainder of the series. The Rangers have won without him, and a win tonight gives the Rangers a chance to clinch at home on Sunday.
