And so it's set.

Caps vs. Rangers. Red, white and blue vs. blue, red and white. Five prior playoff meetings, with the Caps breaking a two-two series tie two springs ago. 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. The Miracle on 34th Street. Sergei Fedorov. Matt Bradley's heroism. Sean Avery vs. civilization Bruce Boudreau, Alex Semin vs. Marc Staal, John Tortorella vs. Verizon Center fans, this season's rock bottom... 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. Oh, and if this intro sounds familiar... good memory.
