New York, NY (Sports Network) - Derick Brassard scored the game's lone goal
and Henrik Lundqvist posted a 27-save shutout to backstop the New York
Rangers' 1-0 victory over the Washington Capitals on Sunday to force a Game 7
in this Eastern Conference quarterfinal series.
Lundqvist, making his 60th consecutive postseason start between the pipes,
stopped 12 shots over the final 20 minutes to secure his seventh career
playoff shutout and force a decisive Game 7 on Monday in Washington, where the
Rangers have yet to win a game in this series.
Braden Holtby played admirably in defeat, stopping 28-of-29 shots, but the
Capitals were unable to solve the reigning Vezina Trophy winner Lundqvist in
falling for the third straight time at Madison Square Garden.
