After a heart breaking loss in game five, you might have thought the Capitals were through, even with the next game on home ice. The Rangers appeared to be the team headed to a 3-2 series deficit in that one, until a Brad Richards goal tied the game in the final seconds and Marc Staahl won it 3-2 with a score of his own in the extra session.

Going back to game three, the Caps also suffered a tough defeat, laboring through three overtime periods and finally succumbing to New York 2-1. Give Washington credit for coming back in game four to stay in the series.

As New York's own Yogi Berra would say, it was "deja vu all over again" for Washington in game six. Much of the credit for this victory must go to Capitals netminder, Braden Holtby. He saved 30 of 31 shots for a .968 save percentage during the sixty minutes. Alex Ovechkin and Jason Chimura scored for the Caps in the 2-1 victory.
