NEW YORK (AP) - Brandon Dubinsky broke a tie with 1:39 left and the New York Rangers beat Washington 3-2 on Sunday to cut the Capitals' lead to 2-1 in the Eastern Conference first-round playoff series.

After the Rangers managed only one goal in two losses at Washington, Dubinsky, Vinny Prospal and Erik Christensen figured out young Capitals goalie Michal Neuvirth.

Game 4 is in New York on Wednesday night.

Henrik Lundqvist was sharp again, making 24 saves. New York got 35 shots through on Neuvirth after a combined 47 in the opening two games.

Alex Ovechkin had a goal and an assist, and Mike Knuble also scored for the Capitals.
