Capitals/Rangers: By The Numbers

by Frank Franklin II/Associated Press

And so it's set.

Caps vs. Rangers. Red, white and blue vs. blue, red and white. Four prior playoff meetings split down the middle - two series apiece, 11 wins apiece. Bobby Carpenter (and a pick) for Mike Ridley, Kelly Miller and Bob Crawford. Jaromir Jagr (and a ton of cash) for Anson Carter. John friggin' Druce.

Back to the here and now, the Miracle on 34th Street. The League's best penalty kill against its second-rated top power play. A showdown of overly handsome goalies. John Tortorella, Sean Avery, Colton Orr vs. Donald Brashear, Alex Semin vs. Marc Staal... the list goes on and on. There's history and there's present-day animosity.

There'll be plenty of time to dive into those storylines and others in the days ahead, but first things first - the numbers. Below are the Caps team and individual stats (after the jump) from this season against the Rangers.
