While waiting here at the MSG Training Center for what I believe will be a sparsely-populated optional game-day skate, just wanted to point out that the Caps are 8-1-1 in the last 10 against your Blueshirts (2-4-1 at MSG) and have won four straight games.
Stacked deck tonight?
Well, if goaltender Michael Neuvirth starts, it will be his first against the Rangers. And Henrik Lundqvist has been playing high-quality hockey.
Remember, it's a 7:30 start (thanks to Versus).. .
