over the Capitals in Game 5 at Madison Square Garden.
Anton Stralman scored the other goal while Henrik Lundqvist made 16 stops for
the Rangers, who now hold a 3-2 lead in this best-of-seven series and are a

win the last two if they want to advance to the conference finals for the
first time since 1998. Braden Holtby stopped 35 shots in the loss.
