NHL Playoffs 2012, Rangers Vs. Capitals Score Update: Game Tied 1-1 After Two Periods

The Washington Capitals and New York Rangers were scoreless through the first period of the game, but that scoreless tie was broken mid-way through the second period when Ryan Callahan picked up a power-play goal assisted by Michael Del Zotto and Marian Gaborik. Callahan simply camped out next to the goal and was able to quickly knock the rebound into the net.

The Caps didn't sit back however, as they began to attack the Rangers goal and John Carlson picked up a goal to tie the game up at 1-1, assisted by Alexander Semin. It was a nice look for Carlson as he was coming across the goal and just put it over Henrik Lundqvist's outside shoulder.

The game has been exceptionally close through two periods thus far, as the two teams head into the final period tied 1-1.
