GAME 3 PHOTOS: Washington Capitals Playoff Beards and More

Here are a few photographs from pre-game warmups (focusing on playoff beards) and New York Rangers v. Washington Capitals playoff game  three of round two on May 2 at Verizon Center. Rangers won 2-1 in third overtime (Game 3 Re-Cap).

The Rangers and Washington Capitals skated for nearly two full games: 114 minutes and 41 seconds, which ranks as the 20th longest NHL game in history.
