It was quite the eventful afternoon Sunday at The Garden for Ryan McDonagh. He scored his first goal since December 1st---a span of 32 games, logged a team-high 25:23 worth of ice-time, blocked a team-high 5 shots, and seemingly suffered a bad knee injury after scoring his goal 13:21 into the second period.
Fortunately McDonagh just "tweaked" the knee after shifting his weight and blasting his shot past Caps goalie Michal Neuvirth, and was able to quickly return to action after a visit to the trainer's room.
When all was said and done, McDonagh also had earned his first Broadway Hat of the season.
"I have kind of had this injury in the past, and it's just a little tweak, so I wasn't worried," McDonagh said after the game. "It's really OK, and I'm glad that it is. It was a good weekend for us for sure, and we feel good about ourselves, and we should. We're glad we've got this little win streak going here, obviously it's a good feeling, but we are definitely not satisfied. We want to keep climbing up the standings."
