Goalie Henrik Lundqvist #30 of the New York Rangers kneels on the ice dejected after he and the Rangers lost 4-3 in double overtime against the Washington Capitals in Game Four of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals during the 2011 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs at Madison Square Garden.

Jason Chimera scored 12:36 into the second overtime, and the Washington Capitals completed a stunning three-goal comeback to beat the Rangers 4-3 and push New York to the brink of elimination Wednesday night.

New York scored three times in the second period to take a 3-0 lead and seemed poised to head back to Washington all even in the series for Game 5 on Saturday. But now the top-seeded Capitals, who are ahead 3-1, can advance to the second round with a win at home — the place in which they grabbed a 2-0 series lead.

Alexander Semin started Washington's rally, and Marcus Johansson scored twice in the third to make it 3-3.

The Rangers built their big lead on a goal by Artem Anisimov and back-to-back tallies just 7 seconds apart by Marian Gaborik and Brandon Dubinsky. Henrik Lundqvist was the hard-luck loser after making 49 saves.
