Rangers, Capitals clash on Wednesday Night Rivalry
The Washington Capitals host the New York Rangers in this week's Wednesday Night Rivalry game.

The last time the New York Rangers and Washington Capitals met, the Rangers left Verizon Center with a 5-0 victory and a ticket to the second round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. That was five months ago, but you can be sure the Capitals haven't forgotten as they prepare to host the Rangers in this week's Wednesday Night Rivalry game (8 p.m. ET; NBCSN, TSN2, RDS2).

Quote of the Day

For us it's a little bit different. I've never been in front of this much media. This is more than we've ever had to deal with in Tampa. I guess we're on a little bit bigger stage now. It's nice, you have to enjoy it. This doesn't happen too often.

— Lightning forward J.T. Brown after his first Media Day experience on Tuesday in preparation of Game 1 on Wednesday
