WASHINGTON -- Mike Ribeiro felt he was due for a lucky bounce, so the Washington Capitals center wasn't totally surprised that the puck ended up on his stick and eventually in the back of the net for the overtime winner Friday night. "I think our line, especially [Friday], we were buzzing around," Ribeiro said roughly 15 minutes after his goal gave the Capitals a 2-1 victory against the New York Rangers in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals. "Since the beginning of this series I think we were buzzing around and having chances and couldn't score, but finally that bounce came at the right time, right moment."
