NHL Network presents: Game 3 2011 ECQF: Rangers vs. Capitals

Thursday, 06.30.2011 / 12:01 AM / NHL Network

NHL.com

All summer long, NHL Network will be replaying the 2011 Stanley Cup Playoffs -- from every jaw-dropping goal to every highlight-reel save to every crushing defeat.

Each game of the postseason -- spanning the more than two-month period from the opening round to Boston's Game 7 clincher of the Stanley Cup Final -- will be shown on the Network throughout the offseason.

Fans can tune in at 8 p.m. ET nightly for a different game -- and different chance to re-live history. A complete program schedule can be found on NHLNetwork.com.


The Rangers were back home at Madison Square Garden for Game 3 of their Eastern Conference Quarterfinal series and were desperate not to fall into a 3-0 hole at the hands of the Eastern Conference-best Washington Capitals. But for the Blueshirts to escape with a victory, they would need to depend on the resiliency that became a hallmark for them during the 2010-11 regular season.

A tally in the closing seconds of the second period would have given the Rangers a 2-1 lead, but the score was negated as a goal review determined time had expired before the puck crossed the goal line. The Rangers reclaimed that 2-1 lead midway through the third on a Vinny Prospal goal, but the Capitals' Mike Knuble tied it  at 2-2 on a slick wrist shot with just over five minutes remaining in regulation. However, Brandon Dubinsky's circus-like backhander went up and over Caps' goalie Michal Neuvirth's shoulder and into the net with less than two minutes left in the game to give New York the 3-2 win and cut Washington's series lead to 2-1.
