Home ice rules again: Ribeiro, Capitals beat Rangers 2-1 in OT, take 3-2 series lead

WASHINGTON - Mike Ribeiro scored 9:24 into overtime, and the Washington Capitals beat the New York Rangers 2-1 Friday night to regain the momentum — and the lead — in their first-round playoff series.

Ribeiro put in the puck after Troy Brouwer deflected a shot from the blue line.

The Capitals lead the series 3-2. Game 6 is Sunday in New York.

The home team has won every game in the series, with Washington taking the first two and New York pulling even in Games 3 and 4. The Capitals have been fighting history along the way: The franchise has lost eight playoff series in which it has held a two-game lead.

Brian Boyle scored for New York in the first minute. Joel Ward tied it in the second period.

Quote of the Day

He's, believe it or not, actually one of my favorite guys, and I've ended up trading him twice. I appreciate what he's done. He was one year away from being an unrestricted free agent, and I felt with this opportunity, that it was a chance that we were able to get somebody for him in Nick Bonino and Adam Clendening.
