With a pair of decisive victories the Caps separated themselves from the Rangers and Hurricanes.
Including Game 6 and 7 of last year's playoffs, the Capitals have been blanked by Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist three straight times.
Thanks to a strong showing from rookie goaltender Philipp Grubauer to go along with a three-goal second period, the Captials defeated the Rangers 4-1 at Madison Square Garden.
Just two days after surprisingly watching from the bench for a second straight game, No. 1 goalie Henrik Lundqvist agreed to a long-term contract extension with the New York Rangers on Wednesday.
Goalie Henrik Lundqvist has agreed to a contract extension with the New York Rangers.
Alain Vigneault brought a whole lot of experience and success into his interview with New York Rangers general manager Glen Sather.
In a span of five days, John Tortorella went from out of the playoffs to out of a job.
Tortorella was unexpectedly dismissed Wednesday with one year left on his contract. He led the Rangers to the Eastern Conference finals last year and into the second round this year before New York was eliminated in five games by the Boston Bruins.
John Tortorella was defiant in stating that the New York Rangers didn't take a step back when they were knocked out of the Stanley Cup playoffs in the second round.
Boston reached the third round of the NHL playoffs for the second time since 1992. The other was 2011, when the Bruins won the sixth Stanley Cup in franchise history.
Ribeiro was second on the Caps in points (13 goals and 36 assists for 49) behind only Hart Trophy candidate Alex Ovechkin. Ribeiro was the Caps' first-half MVP, taking the load off Nicklas Backstrom and other stars who weren't producing early.
The Caps spent much of the past couple of weeks making officials part of the story of the series. Maybe that was the problem.
Washington Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin knows full well that his playoff failures are adding up.
Who knew Mike Ribeiro's overtime goal on Friday would be the Caps' last of the season and that 72 hours they'd be sitting in their locker room wondering what happened.
The Capitals committed five penalties during their 1-0 loss in Game 6 and never had a power play. Postseason success is rarely a tidy matter for this team, and another round of undisciplined play ensured that Sunday.
"They are a skilled team," Lundqvist said. "Every time you play them, if you lose the puck in the wrong area they are going to come and make some good plays to get in front of you. That second period is what killed us."
"About eight months ago I sat down for the first time with my family and my agent and kind of discussed my future," Lundqvist said Wednesday after practice.
