After a 3-1 New York opening game victory on Saturday, Washington came back Monday night with an exciting 3-2 win, stealing home ice advantage from the Rangers, at least for the moment. In Monday's contest, much to the chagrin of Rangers fans, the hated, but still awfully good, Alex Ovechkin, scored the game winner on a third period power play. The wrist shot past Henrik Lundqvist came at 12:33 and the Caps held on the rest of the way. Start your Hockey Betting action on New York Rangers vs. Washington Capitals game.
The Rangers Michael Del Zotto had tied the game at 6:58 of the the third on a hard slap shot that sailed past Washington netminder Braden Coltby. All the other scoring was done in the first period with Mike Knuble starting things off for Washington at the 12:20 mark, followed by the Caps Jason Chimera making it 2-0 five minutes later.
Dependable veteran Brad Richards scored for the Rangers with just 43 seconds remaining in the opening frame, making it Washington 2, New York 1, where it stayed throughout a goal less second period and into the third.
Lundqvist was not up to his usual high standards on Monday making a mistake on the goal by Chimera when he left the crease to play the puck, only to realize he would'nt get to it before a Washington player did, which led to a sequence resulting in the goal. He saved 22, but let 3 get by out of the only 25 shot total. Check the Sportsbook Odds for New York Rangers vs. Washington Capitals game.
