The Caps enter the final meeting between the New York Rangers and themselves having won three of their last four games and are coming off of three days of rest. That should bode well for the team’s energy tonight.
Four of the next seven games for the Caps will be at home, which should help after a solid 3-2 road outing.
Since their 2-1 shootout win against the Capitals on January 24th, the Rangers have mustered a 3-7-1 record since, including a six game losing streak.
An interesting note: the Capitals are 13-0-0 when Alexander Semin scores a goal.
