Rangers vs Capitals: Pre-Game Notes

  • Those DVRing the game, make note of the time & channel. Tonight's game starts at 7:30 PM ET and will be on Versus

  • Marian Gaborik will not play tonight for the Rangers, he says that he'll decide after practice on Wednesday whether he will play on Thursday or Sunday.

  • Despite a strong outting by Marty Biron against the Blues on Sunday in a 2-0 loss (one goal was fired into the empty net), Henrik Lundqvist will be back in goal for the Rangers. Across the way Michal Neuvirth will be stopping pucks (hopefully not all of them) for the Capitals.

  • Todd White will return to the Rangers lineup as a result of Evgeny Grachev being returned to Hartford yesterday.

  • Derek Boogaard who missed practice yesterday with illness will be in the lineup tonight for the Rangers. The Capitals look prepared to dress their enforcer D.J. King, so that could be a little sideshow for us fight enthusiasts. They have fought before (all wins for Boogaard according to this fight card), in Boogaard's last game as member of the Minnesota Wild they had a dandy and King has a history of initiating the fights against The Boogey Man.

  • Read more about the Caps over at Japers' Rink, CSN Washington and The Washington Examiner.
