NEW YORK (AP) - Henrik Lundqvist stopped 27 shots in earning his seventh NHL playoff shutout, and Derick Brassard scored a second-period goal for the New York Rangers, who stayed alive with a 1-0 victory over the Washington Capitals on Sunday that forced a Game 7 in the first-round series.
    
Brassard handed Lundqvist the lead at 9:39 of the second period, with a goal that was originally credited to struggling forward Rick Nash.
    
The reigning Vezina Trophy winner made it stand up, and helped send the series back to Washington for the deciding game Monday night.
    
The home team has won all six games in the series.
    
The game ended with a melee in the far left corner in the New York zone after the final buzzer had sounded.
