The NHL's two best teams will try to add to their point totals in the first and last games on Sunday's seven-game NHL schedule.
The action starts at 12:30 p.m. ET when the best team in the Eastern Conference, the New York Rangers, host the Washington Capitals in a game that will be seen in the United States on NBC and in Canada on the NHL Network and RDSI. The Rangers increased their conference-leading total to 75 points by winning 5-2 in Philadelphia on Saturday. The Caps have been off since Thursday, when they blew a late two-goal lead to Winnipeg and lost 3-2 in a shootout.
