After Mike Green rifled a shot past Henrik Lundqvist in the third period, the Capitals had to hold a one-goal lead for almost six minutes to win Game Four. With that in mind, Dale Hunter sent out the Wagons. Washington held the Rangers to only two shots on goal during that stretch — six blocked — and would hold on to win 3-2 and tie the series at 2.
“The Wagons got the job done with the blocked shots at the end,” Mike Green told reporters after the game. “Great team effort.”
So who are these Wagons that Green’s referring to, and what does that even mean? Glad you asked.
