Game 3 of the 2nd-round series between the New York Rangers and the Washington Capitals is underway, with Wednesday night's action taking place just a slapshot down I-95 at the Verizon Center in the nation's capital. After one period of play, neither team has scored a goal.
Each team certainly had scoring opportunities. Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist turned away 13 shots from the Capitals. A number of those shots came from just inside the blue line, but Washington closed in with a few viable scoring chances that had to give Rangers fans pause. Credit Lundqvist, who stopped a Capitals team that had most of the momentum.
New York put 10 shots on goal. Capitals goalie Branden Holtby stopped them all, most of which were distance shots. The Rangers did have one quality scoring opportunity, which you can see in the animation below.
