Rangers Set Franchise Records with Season Finale Win



    Rangers right wing Jesper Fast (19) reaches for the puck as Capitals defenseman John Carlson (74) passes in the second period.

    Kevin Hayes and Dominic Moore each had a goal and an assist, Henrik Lundqvist stopped 22 shots and the New York Rangers capped their stellar regular season with a 4-2 win over the Washington Capitals on Saturday afternoon.

    The Rangers (53-22-7), winners of the Presidents' Trophy as the league's top team in the regular season, set franchise records for wins and points (113) in a season.

    Derick Brassard and Jesper Fast (empty netter) added goals for New York, and Martin St. Louis had two assists.

    The Rangers won't learn their first-round playoff opponent until the completion of Saturday's games.

    Alex Ovechkin scored his league-leading 53rd goal for Washington and Stanislav Galiev scored the first of his career.

    The Capitals will return to the playoffs under first-year coach Barry Trotz after a one-year absence.
