Projected Capitals-Rangers Lineups
NEW YORK -- The Rangers and Capitals will likely go with the same lineups they used in their most recent contests when they square at Madison Square Garden on Sunday afternoon (12:30, NBC).

Henrik Lundqvist will be in goal for the Rangers, opposed by the Capitals' Tomas Vokoun.

The Rangers went with seven defensemen against the Flyers, with Stu Bickel moved up on the fourth line at times, and that will be the case Sunday. Capitals forward Mike Knuble was a healthy scratch against the Jets on Thursday. Here's what to expect this afternoon when the teams take the ice.

CAPITALS

Alex Ovechkin - Marcus Johansson - Troy Brouwer
Jason Chimera - Mathieu Perreault - Alexander Semin
Matt Hendricks - Jeff Halpern - Joel Ward
Brooks Laich - Keith Aucoin - Jay Beagle
 
Karl Alzner - John Carlson
Dmitry Orlov - Roman Hamrlik
Jeff Schultz - Dennis Wideman
 
Tomas Vokoun
Michal Neuvirth

RANGERS

Quote of the Day

I think when you build a team, you look at pairs, and I think the pair of [Voracek and Giroux] is very good, certainly one of the top pairs in the League.
