Rangers 0, Washington 1

The New York Rangers (5-3) fell to the Washington Capitals (6-4) by a score of 1-0. For a box score, click here. Frustrating loss. Rangers didn’t have it tonight. Move on to Wednesday. I’m probably going to take flak for this, but this was easily Rick Nash’s best game of the postseason. Took pucks to the net, nearly scored in the first period, fantastic in his own end… Say...

Team would love for Nash to repeat that in the playoffs since that number is a head scratchingly low 3.6%. Needs a big postseason to silence his haters once and for all. Final Grade...
