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

I think I'm lucky to be here and you definitely don't take very many things for granted, if you take anything for granted. I definitely put my family and my wife and my close family in perspective, that they're the most important thing in the world. I want to do whatever I can to play hockey, but like I said, under the right circumstances.
