New York, NY (Sports Network) - Brad Richards tied the game late in regulation and Marc Staal won it 1:35 into overtime as the Rangers snatched a 3-2 victory 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 away from advancing to the conference finals for the first time since 1997.

New York will have the chance to close out this series on Wednesday as Game 6 will take place in Washington.

Brooks Laich and John Carlson each scored for the Capitals, who will have to 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.
