May 4, 2013 at 4:32 PM   |   Comments

WASHINGTON, May 4 (UPI) -- Mike Green scored on a power play in overtime Saturday, lifting the Washington Capitals over the New York Rangers 1-0 for a 2-0 first-round playoff series lead.

The Capitals were awarded a man-advantage 7:09 into overtime when Ryan McDonagh was whistled for shooting the puck over the glass, causing a delay of game.

Mike Ribeiro found Green alone in the high slot 51 seconds later, and the Capitals' defenseman one-timed toward the net, where it deflected off the Rangers' Derek Stepan and into the goal.

Braden Holtby turned aside all 24 shot he saw for a shutout as Washington followed up Thursday's 3-1 victory over New York with another triumph to grab a 2-0 advantage the Eastern Conference quarterfinal series.

Henrik Lundqvist made 37 saves for the Rangers, who will host Game 3 Monday.
