The current Rangers hot streak started at the Garden, where the Blueshirts are 9-5-1 this season.
In contrast, the Rangers were 3-4-1 on the road heading into Sunday's game, but they are starting to come around.
The team has already won its two first road games in March after winning only two road games during the entire month of February.
While the Capitals are stuck down at the bottom of the Eastern Conference, it was not a guarantee that the Rangers would just walk over them.
The Capitals had won four straight home games before Sunday against the likes of the New Jersey Devils and the Boston Bruins.
This was a win that the Rangers could be proud of.
