PLAYER NOTES

--D Dennis Wideman led the Capitals in ice time (41:40). Five other Rangers played more. Wideman finished with four shots, two hits and four blocked shots.

--LW Matt Hendricks led the team in shots (six) and hits (11) and said the game turned on one shot. "We had some really good opportunities; a couple of posts," he said. "We just didn't find the back of the net and they got the last bounce, so it's what we expected against the Rangers. We expected this tight checking hockey."
