To some, the New York Rangers only have one star: goalie Henrik Lundqvist. Or at least he’s there only star when Marian Gaborik goes into ghost mode, which he’s done for much of this season.
Yet that ignores the great play (and mustache) of Brandon Dubinsky and the hard-working output of the team overall. Sure, the Washington Capitals have mega-star Alex Ovechkin and some orbiting stars in Alexander Semin and Nicklas Backstrom, but the Rangers have some stealthy talent of their own.
For evidence of that, check out Star Cam footage of the Capitals and Rangers below. To check out Lundqvist and potential star goalie of the future Michal Neuvirth, watch the last video that spotlights the best Net Cam moments.
The Pittsburgh Penguins ended a long run of playoff overtime struggles on Wednesday … and are now one win away from ending the Washington Capitals’ season.
Many expected the Penguins to crater on defense without Kris Letang (they were 2-8-1 in the regular season without him). While there were shaky moments, Pittsburgh emphasized its speed and other strengths in taking a 3-2 overtime thriller against Washington.
With that, the Penguins’ series lead grows to 3-1.
Trevor Daley, traded to Blackhawks for Sharp & Johns and to #Pens for Scuderi (who was flipped to LA for Ehrhoff) played 28:41 in G4 W.
