Washington, DC (Sports Network) - Mike Green scored a power-play goal with
5:48 remaining in the third period, and the Washington Capitals edged the
visiting New York Rangers, 3-2, to even their Eastern Conference semifinal
series at two wins apiece.
Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom supplied the other goals for seventh-
seeded Washington, which hasn't dropped two consecutive games since March
Braden Holtby stopped 18 New York shots.
You have to go back to last season to find the last time the Capitals' young
goaltender has lost two straight starts in the NHL. He went 0-2-1 from
November 13-22, 2010.
Artem Anisimov registered a goal and an assist for the top-seeded Rangers, who
got 23 saves from Henrik Lundqvist.
The teams return to Madison Square Garden for Game 5 on Monday.
