Game Recap – 3/3/2019 – Washington Capitals v. New York Rangers

Washington Capitals (37-21-7 81pts) v. New York Rangers (27-27-10 64pts)

 

Game Recap:

The Washington Capitals head to the Big Apple to take on the New York Rangers for an early afternoon matinee, but it would be the Rangers striking first as Chris Kreider would pick off a Dmitry Orlov pass and feed it to Ryan Strome for a quick 1-0 lead. However, the lead would not last long as Carl Hagelin would attack the net and recover his own rebound on a broken play to score his first goal as a Capital to tie the game. Then after some back and forth for the two teams, it would be Andre Burakovsky netting his ninth of the season to give the Capitals the 2-1 lead.

 

In a lackluster second period that featured a couple huge saves on both sides it would be Pavel Buchnevich to finally get one to tie the game at two for the Rangers.

 

In the third period not a lot of action would take place in what was a quick moving period. We would require extra time, but nothing would be decided in the five minute frame. Then in the shootout, it would be a controversial play by Rangers goalie Alexandar Georgiev that would allow Alex Ovechkin to be credited with the game winning shootout goal when he would throw his stick at Ovechkin to prevent the shot on goal.
