Capitals Shut Out Rangers

Posted by Ace Staff on April 22nd, 2009 in Sports

Alex Ovechkin conrtibuted two assists for the Washington Capitals as they went on to dominate the New York Rangers 4-0, cutting the series deficit to 2-1.  “It was an important game, but it’s over,” said Ovechkin. “It?s done. It’s history. And we have to battle next game.”

The Capitals had a lot of help from their 20 year old goal-keeper Simeon Varlamov, who came up with 33 saves.  Rangers coach John Tororella was very displeased with his team, saying “They played very well defensively and I thought we stunk defensively.  That was the key to the game. They defended very well in front of their net and we were chasing our tail all night long ? spinning and watching the puck.”

The series will stay in New York for one more game before they move back to Washington for game 5.  Game 4 will be played Wednesday, April 22nd at 7:00 pm.  NHL playoff tickets are still available.
