Capitals Vs. Rangers, 2012 NHL Playoffs Game 4: Rangers Lose Game Four; Series Tied At Two

With an opportunity Saturday to take 3-1 lead in their best-of-seven second round 2012 NHL Playoff series with the Washington Capitals the New York Rangers could not take advantage. Fresh off a devastating triple overtime loss in Game 3 the Capitals bounced back in Game 4, winning 3-2, to knot the series at two games apiece.

The Capitals jumped out to an early 1-0 in the first period, on an unassisted goal from Alex Ovechkin. The Rangers tied the game twice in the second period, but never led and ultimately fell by a score of 3-2. Mike Green scored the game-winning goal on a power play, with five-plus minutes remaining in the third.

The series heads back to New York for Game 5, where the Rangers will look to maintain homecourt advantage and send the series back to the Nation's Capital with an opportunity to clinch and move to the Conference Finals.
