Ready to "Rock the Red"

The Verizon Center is a sea of red as the Washington Capitals try to do what the Penguins couldn't -- put away an opponent in Game 5.

It's an uphill battle for the Rangers, who saw a 3-0 third-period lead turn into a 4-3 double-overtime loss in Game 4 -- meaning that instead of going back to D.C. all even, the Rangers need to win just to stay alive.

One area in which the Rangers need to improve is the power play. They are 1-for-18 and went 0-for-7 in Game 4. Another day like that and the Rangers could be toast.

It means a lot to us, we're very excited. We're looking to continue to build on [our] top core talent of young players. It's just a great opportunity for us to really build high.
