The New York Rangers' nine-game homestand didn't get off to the start they were hoping for Saturday, but they don't have much time to dwell on it.
After a 4-3 overtime loss to the New Jersey Devils at Madison Square Garden, the Rangers will host the Washington Capitals in a Metropolitan Division matchup (7 p.m. ET, CSN-DC, MSG). The Rangers blanked the Capitals 2-0 on Oct. 16 in their first game since a 2013 Stanley Cup Playoff first-round series that New York won by shutting out Washington in Games 6 and 7.
"We kind of know what the Rangers are about," Capitals goalie Braden Holtby said Saturday after a 5-2 home victory against the Nashville Predators. "We know it's going to be a hard-fought game. It always is. Low-scoring mostly, which we have to be ready for, but at the same time, you've got to expect the unexpected at times."
