Brandon Dubinsky's goal gives Rangers a 4-3 win in Game 1 @NHLdotcom

WASHINGTON - With the score tied in the third period, the New York Rangers did what they do best - kill off a power play. Then Markus Naslund popped out of the penalty box and set up the winning goal.

Naslund fed Brandon Dubinsky, who made a move that left Jeff Schultz sprawled on the ice and beat goalie Jose Theodore inside the near post with 8:17 remaining.

The goal lifted the Rangers to a 4-3 victory over Alex Ovechkin and the Washington Capitals on Wednesday night in Game 1 of their Eastern Conference series.

Scott Gomez had a goal and two assists, Nik Antropov and Naslund each had a goal and an assist, and Henrik Lundqvist made 32 saves for the seventh-seeded Rangers.

Tomas Fleischmann, Viktor Kozlov and Alexander Semin scored, and Ovechkin had a pair of assists for the second-seeded Capitals.
