Player News
Nate Schmidt
Caps Bring Schmidt Aboard
Nate Schmidt, D, WAS
7:15 AM
News: Nate Schmidt was recalled from AHL Hershey on Sunday, Alex Prewitt of the Washington Post reports.
Analysis: It's not apparent whether or not any injury within the Capitals' defensemen ranks is the reason for Nate Schmidt's call-up, but he'll nonetheless provide coach Barry Trotz will another option on the back end should he decided to opt for a lineup change in Game 3. Schmidt tallied four points over his 39 regular-season games with the Capitals.

Rick Nash
Rangers' Nash Assists In Game 2 Win
Rick Nash, LW, NYR
6:49 AM
News: Rick Nash collected an assist and put four shots on net in Saturday's win over the Capitals.
Analysis: In addition to getting a secondary helper on Derick Brassard's game-winner, Rick Nash had an indirect hand in Dan Boyle's first-period tally. Nash's imposing presence in front of the net following a poor clearing attempt by the Capitals defense seemed to fluster goalie Braden Holtby, who lost track of Boyle on the shot. The winger, who has one goal and five points over seven playoff games, should continue to make an impact throughout the series.

Alex Galchenyuk
Habs Remain Patient With Galchenyuk
Alex Galchenyuk, C, MON
4:13 AM
News: Alex Galchenyuk took three minor penalties and missed a couple of scoring chances during Friday's double-overtime loss to Tampa Bay, the Montreal Gazette reports. The struggling young forward was removed from the power-play unit Friday and for a brief spell was demoted to fourth-line duty.
Analysis: Alex Galchenyuk, who opened the first-round series against Ottawa with points in the first two games, has been silent since. Head coach Michel Therrien continues to preach patience in the development of Galchenyuk and rejected the notion of some tough love, such as making him a healthy scratch for a game or two. Still, this is his third NHL season and the Habs are waiting to see some consistency from the 21-year-old.

Dan Boyle
Rangers' Boyle Gets PPG In Win
Dan Boyle, D, NYR
5/2/2015
News: Dan Boyle picked up a power-play goal Saturday in a 3-2 win over the Capitals. It's his first goal of the postseason.
Analysis: He caught a break when the Caps hit the referee when they attempted to clear the puck. The biscuit stayed in the zone, trickled to Dan Boyle and he pounded it through a screen and into the top corner. He played 17:41 and looks no worse for wear after that hit at end of Game 1.

Henrik Lundqvist
Rangers' Lundqvist: 30 Saves In Game 2 Win
Henrik Lundqvist, G, NYR
5/2/2015
News: Henrik Lundqvist made 30 saves in Saturday's 3-2 win over the Capitals. The series is now tied 1-1.
Analysis: He wasn't really busy in the first when the Rangers out-shot the Caps 15-4 and made a couple of great saves in a busier second. He was beaten in the third by a sprawling Alexander Ovechkin, whose seeing-eye shot went shelf over King Henrik's right shoulder as the winger hit the ice. But he bricked up the net in late in the third when the Caps put on the pressure.

Joel Ward
Caps' Ward: Six Points In Last Seven Games
Joel Ward, RW, WAS
5/2/2015
News: Joel Ward's postseason production continued Saturday when he picked up an assist in the Capitals' 3-2 loss to the Rangers. He now has six points in his last seven games.
Analysis: Clutch -- that's the best way to describe his work these days. He has a history of going on scoring streaks and he certainly seems to enjoy playing alongside Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom. We sure hope you snapped him up in your playoff pool. He's been worth every penny.

Braden Holtby
Caps' Holtby: Strong Game In Loss
Braden Holtby, G, WAS
5/2/2015
News: Braden Holtby made 32 saves in Saturday's 3-2 loss to the Rangers. Their series is now tied at one game each.
Analysis: His teammates didn't play a consistent game in front of him and the score was somewhat generous -- the Caps were flat-out dominated in the first period and were outshot 15-4. And they had to kill off three penalties in the first alone. Braden Holtby was outstanding and should be pumped to return to Washington with the series tied.

Alex Ovechkin
Caps Ovechkin Nets Spectacular Goal
Alex Ovechkin, LW, WAS
5/2/2015
News: Alex Ovechkin scored a spectacular goal in Saturday's 3-2 loss to the Rangers. He tried to split defensemen Dan Girardi and Ryan McDonagh, and fell as he went through, but he managed to get a shot off. It was perfectly placed and went over Henrik Lundqvist's right shoulder into the top corner of the net.
Analysis: It's his fourth goal of the playoffs in nine games and his 69th, including 35 goals, in 67 career postseason games. Remarkably, he has morphed into a true team player under Barry Trotz and that makes the Caps more dangerous than they've ever been. The series is now tied at ones.

Derick Brassard
Brassard Nets Game 2 Winner For Rangers
Derick Brassard, C, NYR
5/2/2015
News: Derick Brassard scored the game-winning goal Saturday in a 3-2 victory over the Capitals.
Analysis: He emerged from the penalty box and quickly transitioned into offense, and then converted a feed from Marty St. Louis. It's his fourth goal of the playoffs. The series is now tied 1-1.

Micheal Ferland
Flames' Ferland Misses Practice On Saturday
Micheal Ferland, LW, CGY
5/2/2015
News: Micheal Ferland (undisclosed) did not participate in the Flames' practice on Saturday, Wes Gilbertson of the Calgary Sun reports.
Analysis: On Friday reports indicated that Micheal Ferland was expected to suit up for Sunday's Game 2 against the Ducks. However, the fact that he wasn't able to practice on Saturday indicates that he may not be available for Game 2. Calgary should provide an update on his status prior to puck drop on Sunday.
