Capitals beat Rangers on buzzer-beating Joel Ward goal

The veteran winger came through in the clutch yet again.

Washington Capitals forward Joel Ward has a knack for scoring big goals in the playoffs. The 34-year-old lived up to his reputation on Wednesday, as he potted the winning tally in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference semifinals with two seconds left in regulation — stunning the Rangers faithful and giving the Caps a 1-0 series lead.

As the overhead angle shows, Ward's shot crossed the goal line with plenty of time to spare.
