Green fiiiiires....SCAAAR! (Greg Fiume, Getty)
The Washington Capitals won game two of their 2013 Eastern Conference Quarterfinal series against the New York Rangers on Saturday afternoon, prevailing 1-0 in overtime on a Mike Green power play goal. Both teams generated chances constantly during the game and the only reason that the contest remained scoreless as long as it did was the stellar play of Braden Holtby in Washington’s net but particularly Henrik Lundqvist, who rebounded from a below-par game (for him) on Thursday to nearly steal a result for his team in this game. Holtby finished the game with 24 stops for his first career playoff shutout as Washington took a 2-0 lead in a playoff series for the first time since the Conference Quarterfinals in 2011, when they also played the Rangers and won a series in five.
How about Mike Green. Perhaps no player on the Capitals has caught more flak than Green over the last three years other than Alex Ovechkin, and Green has s...
BEST OF MAXIM
The Washington Capitals now have a commanding 2-0 series lead over the New York Rangers, thanks to Mike Green's overtime power-play blast the only goal that was able to solve either goalie in this Saturday afternoon matchup.The bounce-back season from Alex Ovechkin has been well documented. I mean,Ovechkin has been on a goal per game pace for his past 24 contests. For me however...
After dropping the playoff opener on Thursday night, 3-1 to the Capitals, the New York Rangers took the ice Saturday afternoon at the Verizon Center looking to even the score in game 2. But scoring once again became a problem for the Rangers. Some great goaltending on both ends and a Mike Green power play goal in overtime [...]
Caps fans should be united during this playoff run Some of you won’t know what this post is about, but if you’re a hockey fan in this area, particularly a Caps fan like I am, you know exactly what this is about. I absolutely despise elitist caps fans. I swear this is the only hockey market in the country where the fans get mad at the other fans for simply not having followed...
As any hockey player can attest to: getting hit by a puck isn't fun.
During Thursday night's Washington Capitals/New York Rangers game one, Capitals defensive Steven Olesky was trying to prevent a shot on goal from Rangers center Derick Brassard.
As Brassard took his shot, the puck took an upward trajectory and hit Olesky right in the face:

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...
On his knees…
Like knee caps! So punny.

Despite being favored by most of the advanced stats community to win this series, the Rangers find themselves down 2-0 to the Washington Capitals and have looked very sloppy in both losses. They outplayed the Caps in Game One and didn't come away with the results they were hoping for, but the Rangers were just bad yesterday. The Caps weren't much better despite having a massive...

In the first-round matchup between the New York Rangers and the Washington Capitals there is a Vezina Trophy-winning goalie who has taken his team to the Eastern Conference finals, and of course there is ... the other guy.
No, Washington's Braden Holtby doesn't have the awards, the accolades or the attention that New York counterpart Henrik Lundqvist has grown accustomed...
