The New York Rangers scored less than 90 seconds into the first period of Game 7 of the 2012 NHL Playoffs, snaking one past goalie Peter Holtby. Carl Hagelin came from behind the Capitols net to feed a pass to Brad Richards, who sent it flying with a one-touch to put the Rangers up:
Henrik Lundquist would, as usual, make sure the score stayed that way. He made eight saves through the first period, and managed to excell even when they came batted out of the air at bizarre angles.
The Rangers got one power play in the first, a 2 minute minor when Matt Hendricks was called for hooking Michael Del Zotto. Nothing would come of it, however, as the Rangers power play failed to capitalize. That left things at 1-0 in the intermission, giving the Rangers a slim advantage going forward.
