Behind two goals from rookie Andre Burakovsky, Washington topped New York in Game 4 to move within one win of the Eastern Conference Finals.
Barry Trotz made a comment after Game 3 that must have motivated one Capitals rookie, because he's the one that lifted them to a Game 4 win.
Game 1 was Joel Ward, Game 3 was Jay Beagle and in Game 4 it was Andre Burakovsky's turn to lead the Caps, scoring his first two playoff goals to give the Caps a 3-1 series lead.
