Rangers take first win of series thanks to consistent offence.
The New York Rangers won game three of their playoff series with the Washington Capitals, in large part to strong offensive display and final period play.
Derick Brassard was the main reason behind new York’s success, as he had one goal and two assists on the night, and was the main catalyst for the success going forward.
The Rangers are still the underdogs in this series, as the Caps are one the hot favourites to go all the way, but speaking after the game to ESPN.com, Rangers coach John Torterella was happy the side got the crucial win.
“It’s a good group of guys,” John Tortorella said.
“It’s just trying to get momentum on your side and finding a way to win the hockey game. We got it done.”
With one win under their belt, the series remains in Madison Square Garden for game four, with the Rangers believing that they have every opportunity to tie the series at 2-2.
