GREENBURGH, N.Y. (AP) - Like many New York Rangers supporters, Marian Gaborik shut off the TV after a long, frustrating, disappointing night and went to sleep.

And just like many full-throated fans who taunted Washington Capitals coach Bruce Boudreau during Game 4 on Wednesday night, when the Rangers held a seemingly comfortable three-goal lead, Gaborik never expected his night would turn so badly after it started out so well.

Never known for his play in the defensive end, Gaborik was trying to do the right thing in the second overtime of Game 4. The Rangers were trying to pull out a win that would have evened the series 2-2 and one they thought they had in the bag when they jumped out to a 3-0 edge - a lead they held after two periods that included a long-awaited goal from top-line forward Gaborik.
