389 Capitals 4, Rangers 3 (2OT): Game 4 in review

Here’s the bad news. Teams trailing 3-1 have won 23 of 240 series in history (9.6 percent). Here’s the good news: Twenty-one  of those have happened since 1987, including twice last year. And the Capitals did it to the Rangers in 2009, and had it done to them by Montreal…

254 Rangers 3, Capitals 2: Game 3 in review

I just wonder what we’d all be saying today if the Rangers hadn’t gotten two fluky goals. I’m just saying, sometimes we judge a game and how it’s played only by the score. More to the point, I’m not taking anything away from the way the Rangers played yesterday. I…

Bruce Boudreau: On the first goal, first period: “It probably is really important but we’ve been able to come back if they get it, and I’ve seen them come back, too. It’s nice to set the tone, but at the same time, if it’s in the first period, there’s a…
