Just on time to watch the Rangers score, 5:08 into the game, on a deflection in front.

Johansson's line was deep into the offensive zone, they lost the puck, quick counter-attack by all the Rangers, Shattenkirk and Schmidt got overwhelmed.

Carlson to the box, Rangers on the PP.

Rangers hit iron twice, and it's killed.

Wow, Shattenkirk created a good opening with a long pass, can't believe the second-liners were unable to take a good shot in this situation with their talent. They were all around the net but not aggressive enough.

Ovechkin muscles his way in front of the net for a chance, but Lundqvist makes the save.

He stays on the ice for the last seconds of the period. Almost another chance.

First intermission, 1-0 Rangers.

Caps are waking up. I may be doing the opposite, going to sleep, though, LOL.

Not watching. Just checked the game summary: there was a fight between Winnik and Clendening, and 21 seconds later, Johansson scored his 20th of the season, tying his record established in 82 games in 2015-16. Assists: Orlov and Kuznetsov.

1-1.

And now Connolly! 2-1! From Niskanen and Eller.

Shots were 11-8 Rangers in the first period, they're 17-8 Caps in the second so far.

2-1 Caps end second.

Total shots: 27-20 Caps. Total attempts: 47-35 Caps.

Ovechkin has 7 attempts (3 on goal, 3 blocked, 1 missed) and 6 hits!

Shattenkirk has 4 shots on goal and one missed. He played on the first PP unit (Niskanen on the second one). All d-men are getting similar time of ice.

Johansson beats his season record with his 21st goal!

3-1 Caps.

Assists: Kuznetsov and Niskanen, who already had one in this game (on different goals). Niskanen is +3.

Backstrom!!! On a hard shot that bounced off the stick of a d-man.

4-1 Caps.

Johansson and Carlson for the assists although they were just watching the master.

And it's over!

Trotz becomes the 6th coach in NHL history to reach 700 wins.

Congrats Trotz and Caps on the win!

Woke up, so decided to try computer again... no luck- but, exactly at 1:00 AM my time, it comes back on like it never happened.

Very strange.
