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.

Jason Chimera - Mathieu Perreault - Alexander Semin
Matt Hendricks - Jeff Halpern - Joel Ward

Quote of the Day

Because of the way they play and their skill set I don't think they're fourth-line players, so in my mind I'm looking at one of those guys I'll have to move over to the wing.
