Game. Stepan. Series.
Last night’s second-round series finale was completed in typical New York Rangers fashion — a thrilling win by the slimmest of margins.
Pinned against the boards staring down the barrel of a familiar 3-1 playoffs series hole, the Blueshirts called upon a little MSG magic for the second year in a row.
The Rangers and Washington Capitals battled it out for six grueling games. Game 7 would be no different. Just over the 11-minute mark in the extra period of play, Rangers center, Derek Stepan, would get his number called. Off a face-off in the Capitals’ zone, Rangers defenseman, Dan Girardi, whipped in a low-liner, which deflected off of the Caps’ backstop, Braden Holtby, and onto the stick of a well-positioned Stepan. The 24-year-old stepped to the puck and whizzed a one-timer past the glove of a sprawled-out Holtby. You can now breathe, Rangers fans.
The Rangers have played Game 7 at Madison Square Garden seven times in their history, winning all seven. They’ve won six consecutive Game 7’s overall and three of them have come against Washington. Conversely, the Caps are racking up all the wrong parts of the stat sheet. Alex Ovechkin and company are now forced to swallow yet another brutal post-season exit as they fall to 0-5 in Game 7’s in a series they have lead 3-1.
The red hot Rangers now look ahead to Saturday as they host the Tampa Bay Lightning in the Eastern Conference Final.
