The Rangers inability to score on a 5-on-3 in the second period with the game tied, 1-1, helped sway the tide in Washington’s favor on Thursday in Game 1, according to the players after the game.
Derek Stepan, Ryan McDonagh and Brad Richards all credited that power play as the turning point of Game 1, a 3-1 Rangers loss. In the locker room, the three also discussed the amount of penalties the team took, the defensive breakdown that led to the Capitals second goal, and their inability to score a power play goal of their own on a handful of opportunities.
Watch the players discuss these topics and more, then tell us what you thought the turning point was.
