New York, NY (Sports Network) - Derick Brassard scored the game's lone goal and Henrik Lundqvist posted a 27-save shutout to backstop the New York Rangers' 1-0 victory over the Washington Capitals on Sunday to force a Game 7 in this Eastern Conference quarterfinal series.

Lundqvist, making his 60th consecutive postseason start between the pipes, stopped 12 shots over the final 20 minutes to secure his seventh career playoff shutout and force a decisive Game 7 on Monday in Washington, where the Rangers have yet to win a game in this series.

Braden Holtby played admirably in defeat, stopping 28-of-29 shots, but the Capitals were unable to solve the reigning Vezina Trophy winner Lundqvist in falling for the third straight time at Madison Square Garden.
