'Casual Mike' scores in overtime; Capitals beat Rangers 1-0 in OT to take 2-0 series lead

WASHINGTON - Mike Green scored eight minutes into overtime, Braden Holtby made 24 saves for his first career playoff shutout, and the Washington Capitals beat the New York Rangers 1-0 Saturday to take a 2-0 series lead in the Eastern Conference playoffs.

Green nailed a one-timer from high in the slot on a feed from Mike Ribeiro during a power play. Rangers defenceman Ryan McDonagh was in the penalty box for delay of game, having lifted the puck over the glass in New York's defensive zone.

Henrik Lundqvist made 37 saves for the Rangers.

Game 3 is Monday in New York.

Quote of the Day

I don't know how he does it. I don't know how he gets his body parallel with the player and pulls it through his legs like that. I know he's tried it a couple times in practice and it's never worked, so how he does it in a game, it's incredible.
