The game got off to a roaring start as Kaapo Kakko wasted no time in putting the Rangers on the scoreboard with a beautiful wrist shot just 57 seconds into the first period. However, the Capitals quickly responded, with Martin Fehervary tying the game at 1-1 with a snap shot late in the period.

But the Rangers refused to let up, and Vincent Trocheck restored their lead with a power-play goal in the dying seconds of the first period, giving us a 2-1 advantage heading into the intermission.

The second period saw the Capitals equalize once again, but the Rangers remained undeterred. With the game hanging in the balance, Artemi Panarin delivered a clutch power-play goal early in the third period, swinging the momentum back in our favor and putting us ahead 3-2.

As the clock wound down and tensions reached a fever pitch, Jack Roslovic sealed the deal with an empty-net goal in the final minutes of the game, securing a 4-2 victory for the Rangers and completing the series sweep over the Capitals.


Artemi Panarin emerged as a key player once again, tallying a goal and an assist in the pivotal Game 4. His leadership and offensive prowess were instrumental in guiding the Rangers to victory and punching their ticket to the second round of the playoffs.
