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 had one really not-good game. I came back to the hotel and he [his father] was on Skype. My mother called first and said, 'Your father wants to talk to you.' So he moved my mother away, and he yelled at me for like 30 seconds. I understood him, and then he said, 'I'm done.' And he was gone. The next game I got my first shutout.
