Look closely behind the celebration. All he can do is slam his hand against the glass. Also note the celebrating Rangers fan behind him.

On the plus side, at least he didn't Stoudemire himself.

Rangers Vs. Capitals, Game 3 Final Score: Marian Gaborik Wins It For NY In Triple OT

The Washington Capitals and New York Rangers battled to a draw through two overtimes as a game that began on Wednesday stretched into the early hours of Thursday morning. Finally, with just over five minutes to go in triple overtime, Marian Gaborik broke the tie, beating Braden Holtby and giving the Rangers a 2-1 lead.

Ryan Callahan opened the scoring for New York on the power play at the 6:41 mark of the second. Michael Del Zotto's shot redirected off the legs of John Carlson and Matt Hendricks before falling right in front of the net, where Callahan was able to pick it up, spin and easily toss it in the back of the net.

Carlson redeemed himself 4:29 later with a great individual effort in the offensive zone. He lost the puck off his stick but kept with the play as Marc Staal tried to bat the loose puck away. It hit Carlson in the midsection, then fell back in front of Carlson, who picked it up, danced to the front and roofed a shot over the shoulder of Henrik Lundqvist.
