Puck over glass. ‘‘Casual Mike’’ does.
The NHL’s black-and-white delay-of-game rule found a gray area late in regulation, then tipped the balance of the game twice in overtime. The Washington Capitals held firm when they were a man down, then won it on Mike Green’s latest extra-time winner, topping the visiting Rangers, 1-0, Saturday to take a 2-0 series lead in the Eastern Conference playoffs.
