As an athlete, there are certain teams you just feel more comfortable playing against. And for the Capitals Jason Chimera that team is the New York Rangers. According to Stephen Whyno at the Washington Times, Chimera's game winner that somehow slipped past Henrik Lundqvist last night was his sixth goal in just 13 playoff games against the Rangers. He has just two goals in his other 24 playoffs games. And it's not just the amount of goals Chimera has had against the Blueshirts, it's how crushing they've been. Besides the one last night, how could Rangers fans ever forget this one from the 2011 playoffs that Marian Gaborik and Henrik Lundqvist still have nightmares about... Here's Chimera on his comfort level against the Rangers... “Every time we seem to play them it’s a playoff series and it’s a big stage. It’s fun to play against a team like that. Regular season’s one thing but as playoffs come around you always want to be one of those players [who’s] relied upon to play good and help the team out.” ...Chimera is a big guy who plays a north/south game that is suited perfect for the playoffs. Unfortunately, during the previous three series against the Capitals the Rangers haven't had a big physical forward to offset a guy like Chimera. That's where hopefully Ryane Clowe can step in. If the Rangers can get him back in the next few games I think he can neutralize Chimera and Brouwer giving the Rangers a great opportunity to take this series.
