For the second straight season, New York survived a seven game playoff series against Washington as the Rangers crushed the Capitals 5-0 on Monday night to bag a 4-3 series win. Look no further than goaltender Henrik Lundqvist when trying to determine New York’s success. King Henry posted shutouts in games six and seven and he’s stopped the last 62 pucks that have been fired at him. The Blueshirts scored 14 goals in their four wins and just two goals in their three loses versus the Capitals. The Rangers offensive special team play needs to be better in this series after New York went just two for 28 on the power-play against Washington.
