Despite injuries to key players such as Ryan Callahan and Brandon Dubinsky, the Rangers enter Monday night's game against Washington just three points behind the fifth-seeded Capitals in the Eastern Conference. The Caps are 4-0-1 in their last five games.
The game is slated to begin at 7:30 p.m. ET and can be seen on VERSUS in the U.S. and both TSN2 and RDS in Canada.
