The Swedish goalie's performance helped boost sixth-seeded New York into Round 2, where they will face the Boston Bruins, winners of their own Game 7 Monday against the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Arron Ashem, Ryan Callahan, Michael Del Zotto, Taylor Pyatt and Mats Zuccarello each scored while Derick Brassard and Steve Eminger supplied two assists apiece in the victory.

The Rangers beat Washington in a seven-game series for a second straight year.

Braden Holtby turned aside 22 shots for the third-seeded Capitals.
