The Washington Capitals had a back-to-back rematch with the New York Rangers to win if they wanted to extend their winning streak to eight games. Could they get to that nice, even number?
Pavel Buchnevich tapped home a pass from Adam Fox on a set faceoff play to open the scoring. No scoring in the second. John Carlson from in tight slotted home a backhand past Keith Kinkaid to tie things up. Mika Zibanejad continued his torture of the Caps, giving the Rangers a very late 2-1 lead. Howden empty netter.
Rangers beat Caps 3-1.
