The New York Rangers and Washington Capitals are going the distance in their first-round series. The Rangers held on for a 1-0 victory in Game 6 on Sunday thanks to a goal by Derick Brassard and some fantastic netminding by Henrik Lundqvist.

Let’s discuss the contest.

  • The Rangers power play went 0-for-5 on Sunday. Can New York go deep in the playoffs without special teams success? What should John Tortorella do to get more out of that struggling unit?
  • So far in this series, the home team has won every game. The Rangers struggled on the road during much of the 2013 regular season.
  • It’s also worth noting that Game 7 will be on Monday, a rare playoff back-to-back. Which team is likely to handle the short turnaround better tomorrow?
  • If you had to face the Rangers or Capitals in the semifinals, which one would be easier to beat?
