Gaborik Cashes In

If there was ever a time for Marion Gaborik to score in the playoffs, he picked the best time to do it. Gaborik beat Capitals goalie Braden Holtby with just over five minutes to go in the third overtime, and give the Rangers a 2-1 series lead.

Game 2 was a game of golden chances for both sides, and a game of world class saves for the goaltenders. Ryan Callahan opened the scoring with a power play goal seven minutes into the second period, but John Carlson tied it up less than five minutes later.

In overtime Alexander Ovechkin had a chance to win the game but hit the far post, and did not see any chances after that. The New York Rangers played their brand of hockey in the overtimes, and won the way they have all season, with a team effort. Although Gaborik netted the game winner, the Rangers sold out all game and gave up their bodies to block shots and make plays.

Great team plays beat talent every day, and the Rangers are the best example why. Maybe the Knicks should go to a Ranger game or two. #teamb4me
