The New York Rangers are up 1-0 after the first period in Game 5 of their second round 2012 NHL Playoffs series against the Washington Capitals. The Rangers are looking to take 3-2 lead in the series and put themselves within a win of the Eastern Conference Finals. Through 20 minutes, they are leading the Caps in shots on goal by a 17-4 margin. Anton Stralman put New York on the board with a very pretty shot across the face of Braden Holtby at a tough angle.
Lundqvist hasn't been tested often, but the Capitals did have one 2-on-1y opportunity stuffed by the veteran goaltender. Both teams have had one powerplay opportunity each so far, though they neither has capitalized yet.
