Rangers Slip Past Capitals In Game 1

Posted by Ace Staff on April 16th, 2009 in Sports

Brandon Dubinsky scored the go ahead goal with 8:17 left in regulation  for the New York Rangers to beat out the Washington Capitals 4-3.   This marks the first game of the quarterfinals, giving the Rangers the early 1-0 advantage.  The Capitals offense seemed to be dominant for the majority of the game as they lead in shots taken, hits, and face-offs.

Rangers goalie Henrik Lundgvist was able to calm the storm, coming up with 32 saves for the game.  Coach John Tortorella was more than pleased with the win.  “I thought we were a nervous club, but that we rebounded well in the second period,” he said. “We found a way to get our legs underneath us. We had big plays at big times. We were fortunate to get a win.”

The next game of the series will be Saturday, April 18th at the Verizon center.  Get your Rangers playoff tickets now at!
