(WASHINGTON) -- Henrik Lundqvist made 35 saves en route to his second straight shutout, as the sixth-seeded New York Rangers defeat the No. 3 seed Washington Capitals in Game 7 of their first-round playoff series Monday, 5-0.
"He was really good (Lundqvist), but the team was also good, too," Rangers head coach John Tortorella said. "I have to give the team some credit. They played hard in front of him."
Capitals star winger Alex Ovechkin had only one shot in the loss. Ovechkin finishes the series with just two points.
This was the first game of the series the road team won, and the first time in Rangers' history that a Game 7 was won on the road.
The win advances the Rangers to the second round of the playoffs, where they'll take on the No. 4 seeded Boston Bruins.
