The Washington Capitals are in an 0-2 series hole dropping the first two games in front of a loud Madison Square Garden. But what the New York Rangers don't know is that they're coming into the most powerful city in the world. It's time to don your red or Screaming Eagle/Capital Dome black jersey and whether you are in the stands or on your couch, they need your support now more than ever.

So how do the Caps get back in this series? Here are 3 ways:

The Capitals pushed hard towards the end. They just need to shoot the puck more. Simple math yes. But what the Caps also did to succeed was crash the net. That's how Connor McMichael was the one to put the Caps ahead and give them their first lead of the series.

It's a tricky puzzle solving the Rangers. Back then it was Henrik Lundqvist. Now it's Igor Shesterkin they have to solve. The Caps though have cracked the Lundqvist code in the past. Perhaps if the Caps do it again we went from the Young Guns doing it to the Whippersnappers and we need those whippernsnappers like McMichael and Hendrix Lapierre to continue to create traffic.
