Washington, DC (Sports Network) - Mike Green scored a power-play goal with 5:48 remaining in the third period, and the Washington Capitals edged the visiting New York Rangers, 3-2, to even their Eastern Conference semifinal series at two wins apiece.

Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom supplied the other goals for seventh- seeded Washington, which hasn't dropped two consecutive games since March 22-23.

Braden Holtby stopped 18 New York shots.

You have to go back to last season to find the last time the Capitals' young goaltender has lost two straight starts in the NHL. He went 0-2-1 from November 13-22, 2010.

Artem Anisimov registered a goal and an assist for the top-seeded Rangers, who got 23 saves from Henrik Lundqvist.

The teams return to Madison Square Garden for Game 5 on Monday.
