Derek Stepan Game 7 OT Winner

It wasn’t easy, but the New York Rangers continued their incredible run of Game 7 success on Wednesday, thanks to this Derek Stepan game-winner just over 11 minutes into overtime:

That goal by Stepan gave the Rangers the 2-1 victory, and the 4-3 series win.  It was their sixth consecutive Game 7 victory, and they remain a perfect 7-0 in Game 7s at Madison Square Garden, dating back to 1992.  They also became the first team in NHL history to win a series after trailing 3-1 in consecutive seasons—having done so last year against the Penguins as well.

As for the Caps, their Game 7 woes continue, as they have now been eliminated by the Rangers in Game 7 in three of the past four post-seasons, and they’re also a disappointing 0-5 in Game 7s after leading a series 3-1.

When you consider their respective histories, I guess we really shouldn’t be surprised by the outcome. But I’ll give both the Rangers and the Capitals credit for making it interesting from start to finish.
