The New York Rangers and the Washington Capitals are tied 1-1 after two periods of play on Wednesday night at the Verizon Center in Washington, DC. After a scoreless first, both teams battled through an intense second period to end up at this point in the third game of the series.

New York got on the board first with a power play goal from Ryan Callahan, his fourth goal of the playoffs. Michael Del Zotto and Marian Gaborik assisted him on the goal.
