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

He seemed to thrive on his own and didn't really need any push from me. I certainly don't want to get in the way of the coaches. You see how that goes sometimes. I never really worried about it and just enjoyed the ride.
