Sunday afternoon wasn’t the worst game we’ve seen the Caps play, but it wasn’t close to their best – and they’ll need to be much closer to that peak performance to take down the Rangers and get back in this series.

First, some admin stuff:

  • Who: Capitals @ Rangers
  • Where: Madison Square Garden
  • When: 7:00 p.m.
  • How to Watch: Monumental, ESPN
  • How to Listen: 106.7, Capitals Radio 24/7

With Rasmus Sandin and Nick Jensen apparently still ailing and Vincent Iorio the latest to join the growing group of wounded blueliners, Lucas Johansen is poised to make his NHL playoff debut tonight. As for the rest of the lineup…TBD.

Time to take home ice advantage away from the Rangers. Let’s GO, babes.
