Video: Rangers' Marc Staal wins Game 5 early in OT with power-play strike
Marc Staal of the Rangers made sure Brad Richards' late-game heroics weren't for nothing by scoring in the opening minutes of overtime and completing the comeback for the Rangers.
The New York Rangers got some very late-game heroics from Brad Richards -- with an assist to Joel Ward of the Capitals for his late-game penalty -- to send Game 5 into overtime. Could we be looking at another triple-overtime thriller like we saw in Game 5?
Negative. Because the penalty on Ward in the final minute was a double minor, the Rangers began overtime with 1:53 still left on their power play. They took advantage of thanks to Marc Staal.
The Rangers defenseman took the puck after an offensive-zone faceoff win for the Rangers -- seriously, those are a really big deal, in case you didn't know -- and found a shooting lane. This was the result: pandemonium in the Garden.
