Rangers Vs. Capitals, 2012 NHL Playoffs: Game 5 Reactions

Here is some of the reaction to the New York Rangers’ dramatic 3-2 overtime victory over the Washington Capitals Monday in their best-of-seven Eastern Conference NHL Playoff series.

From Blueshirt Banter:

What a win, what a game, but the work is not done. The contributions need to be greater all around, and the Rangers need to go into Washington looking at it as if they are down 3-2, not up 3-2.

From Japers’ Rink:

6.6 seconds. That’s all that remained in regulation, all that separated the Caps from a 3-2 series lead heading back to DC. And despite their penchant for “blowing” one-goal leads during the postseason, they’ve managed to hang on to them late when it’s really counted. It’s how they’ve gotten to this point in the first place. But a lot can happen in 6.6 seconds, and with the Caps shorthanded the Rangers decided to finally find a way to make their power play work. 6.6 seconds, a scramble in the crease, a bad play by Holtby and the game was tied.
