We call him 'Casual Mike' every now and then."Braden Holtby made 24 saves for his first career playoff shutout for the Capitals and has stopped 59 of 60 shots in the series.Game 3 is Monday in New York.Green got his chance because the Capitals' power play the best in the NHL during the regular season finally returned to the ice thanks to the rule that sends a player to the box when he "shoots or bats" the puck "directly" over the glass while in his defensive zone.The Rangers had done a better job staying out of the box after taking too many minors in Game 1, but the officials had no choice when defenseman Ryan McDonagh clearly committed the error 7:09 into overtime."Just got a little too under it," McDonagh said.On only their second man advantage of the game and first since the first period Green nailed a one timer from high in the slot on a feed from Mike Ribeiro precisely at the eight minute mark of the extra period.Contrast that with the New York power play that started 1:51 into overtime, after Steve Oleksy was whistled for the over the glass miscue.

Alzner said it was because they decided he had tipped the puck."I was thinking about that last night," Alzner said. "I was thinking if that play ever happened, what would the call be? And I guess it's discretionary, whatever. . It's kind of a weird coincidence."The Rangers bit their tongue about it after the game."There's no use talking about it now," Callahan said. "I mean, it doesn't matter. Just move on."Pucks over glass debates aside, the game consisted mostly of Henrik Lundqvist and Holtby kicking, swiping, catching and otherwise getting in the way of the puck.
