We should have known better. We should have been more cynical. We should just have assumed this series was going to seven and enjoy Mother’s Day.
But nooooooo. We watched the Caps play an undisciplined-yet-solid game on enemy ice, giving up five power plays. No one’s saying the Caps are angels, but this is silly. The Rangers did nothing with their big chunk of man-advantage time, but one lucky bounce off Steve Oleksy’s arm made this a perfect afternoon for New York: a shutout without any penalties committed*.
Rangers beat Caps 1-0. Game seven tomorrow night.
