'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 first met him when I was 19 years old and he coached me for 13 consecutive years. I don't know how many athletes who have had that pleasure. Al Arbour was a man that left us not only feeling like champions, but left us with a lot of great memories that we can carry on through life.
