Rangers make good use of home-ice advantage
By KEN WIEBE, QMI Agency
With history as your guide, oddsmakers in Las Vegas would have been able to tell you the New York Rangers were a strong bet to win Monday’s game at Madison Square Garden.
In fact, you could have bet the farm on it.
But after watching the Washington Capitals earn 3-1 and 1-0 victories in the opening two games in the series, there was a belief that this year might be different.
Instead, the Rangers earned a 4-3 victory in Game 3 of this opening-round match-up, dropping the Capitals to 0-7 when holding a 2-0 advantage in a best-of-7 series.
