2012 NHL Playoffs, Capitals Vs. Rangers: SB Nation Bloggers' Reactions

Considering how tight the New York Rangers and Washington Capitals series has been to this point, it's fitting that these two will settle their score with a game seven on Saturday at Madison Square Garden.

But before they do, here's a look back on game six, via our trusted SB Nation bloggers from Blueshirt Banter and Japers Rink.

Over at Blueshirt Banter, frustration set in on Wednesday night:

- I think the best word to use to describe Game 6 would be frustrating. It was just a frustrating game. Ryan Callahan trips on the penalty kill, can't cover Alex Ovechkin and Ovechkin does what he does an it's suddenly 1-0. Then the officials incorrectly call icing on the Rangers, the Capitals win the draw, get a ton of luck on the puck deflection and Jason Chimera scores the game winning goal. Sometimes the bounces go that way.

Japers Rink, meanwhile, is relishing the continued resilience of the Caps:

After letting Game 5 slip painfully through their fingers in a matter of minutes, the question facing the Caps was one which has faced them a number of times throughout the playoffs: how would they respond? Down 3-2 in the series, the only way they could respond - the only way they could prolong their postseason at least a little longer - was to show that resilience we've grown accustomed to seeing over the past month.

And thankfully for Caps fans, it was on full display tonight, as the hometown boys made sure to send the raucous Verizon Center crowd home happy - and to book their tickets for one last trip to New York.
