This opening-round Eastern Conference playoff series shifts back to Washington D.C. knotted up 2-2 after New York held serve on home ice for the second time in three days. The Rangers topped the Capitals 4-3 in Game 4 and never trailed throughout the pivotal matchup,

Goalie Henrik Lundqvist, named a Vezina Trophy finalist once again, stopped 27 shots and turned away a Capitals shot in the closing seconds of regulation to preserve a tightly contested victory. The third period began with the score tied 2-2 but a power play goal by Dan Girardi gave New York a lead it would never relinquish.

Derek Stepan scored his second goal of the series six minutes into the third period, providing the Rangers with some insurance. Both teams have won a pair of games at home.

After scoring just one goal in two games on the road, the Rangers racked up eight scores in Games 3 and 4.
