If they want to avoid elimination, Alex Ovechkin and the Washington Capitals must figure out a way to recover and regroup from a potentially devastating loss to the New York Rangers. The Rangers head into today’s Game 6 (4:30 p.m., NBC Sports) with a 3-2 series lead, one victory from reaching the Eastern Conference finals for the first time since 1997. New York’s Brad Richards tied Game 5 with 6.6 seconds left Monday, and Marc Staal won it 1:35 into overtime. Ovechkin had zero shots on goal for only the second time in 49 career NHL playoff games. The Capitals are 3-0 in games following overtime losses this postseason. – AP
