In Game 1 of the second-round of the NHL Playoffs, the New York Rangers lose on a buzzer-beater to the Washington Capitals.

On Thursday night, the last day of April in the year 2015, fans of the New York Rangers experienced a night they’d like to soon wash away from their short memories.

Whether they were live in the flesh at Madison Square Garden, or in the comfort of their living rooms, as Washington Capitals forward Joel Ward snuck the puck underneath Henrik Lundqvist with just over one tick of the clock to play, a collective sigh of disbelief rang true.

The Rangers put up a major choke job.

The game was played on a pretty even basis. Most might say New York owned most parts of the game. However, Braden Holtby played a big game, and yet again, the Rangers couldn’t score goals.

It’s a problem that is not going away, as only once in six-playoff games they’ve score more than two-goals in a game.
