NHL playoff roundup: Rangers win Game 1 over Caps

Associated Press
The NHL roundup …
WASHINGTON ó With the score tied in the third period, the New York Rangers did what they do best ó kill off a power play. Then Markus Naslund popped out of the penalty box and set up the winning goal.
Naslund fed Brandon Dubinsky, who made a move that left defenseman Jeff Schultz sprawled on the ice. Dubinsky then beat goalie Jose Theodore inside the near post with 8:17 remaining, lifting the Rangers to a 4-3 victory over Alex Ovechkin and the Washington Capitals in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference series.
Scott Gomez had a goal and two assists, Nik Antropov and Naslund each had a goal and an assist, and Henrik Lundqvist made 32 saves for the seventh-seeded Rangers.
Tomas Fleischmann, Viktor Kozlov and Alexander Semin scored, Ovechkin had a pair of assists, and Jose Theodore made 17 saves for Washington.
Game 2 is Saturday in Washington.
Penguins 4, Flyers 1
PITTSBURGH ó Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin each had a goal and an assist, and Pittsburgh shut down frustrated Philadelphia’s fleet of scorers.
Penguins goalie Marc-Andre Fleury, idle for long stretches in the first two periods as his teammates controlled play at the other end, made 26 saves to help the Penguins win their fourth consecutive conference playoff series opener.
