He has had some shaky moments in this series, but he scored the game-winning goal on a power play late in the third period, was on the ice for Nicklas Backstrom's second-period tally and was not on for any goals against.
Under the radar
New York goalie Henrik Lund?qvist did allow one soft goal when his glove failed him on Alex Ovechkin's point shot. But the Rangers could have been down three or four early if not for Lundqvist's brilliance. He finished with 23 saves.
Did you notice ...
Caps defenseman Jeff Schultz blocked a game-high nine shots? That even surprised coach Dale Hunter. With a long reach and big body, Schultz can make it difficult to get shots through. He was on the ice for both New York goals, however.
Behind the bench
John Tortorella received plenty of questions when he played No. 6 defenseman Stu Bickel only 3:24 in a triple-overtime win Wednesday. Bickel didn't play much in Game 4, but at least he was on the ice for 7:02.
Dale Hunter decided to flip his centers again. After pairing Nicklas Backstrom with Alex Ovechkin on the top line in Game 3, Hunter put Brooks Laich back there with Backstrom on the second line. Both revamped lines produced goals.
