Season Series: This is the first meeting of three between these two teams this season.

Team Scope:

Capitals
: Washington concludes a three-game road trip with its visit to Madison Square Garden. The Caps made it 2-for-2 with Thursday's 4-3 win against the Lightning at the Tampa Bay Times Forum. It wasn't easy, though - the Caps cruised out to a 4-1 lead before the Lightning nearly rallied to tie it.

"You obviously have to use it as a learning curve," Oates said. "We obviously did a lot of good things to make it 4-1 and made a mistake to make it 4-2. We didn't protect the puck as we should have on their end and we gave a guy a breakaway, which we shouldn't have."

Rangers: New York's past two games have required shootouts. The Rangers raced out to a 2-0 lead against the Islanders on Thursday night, but were unable to hang on in a 4-3 loss at MSG.

The Blueshirts also held a 3-0 lead against the Boston Bruins on Tuesday, only to see it slip away. They did manage to win the breakaway competition to secure the second point.

"I don't think it's a concern," defenseman Marc Staal said of the blown leads. "I think it's just a mental focus and making sure that you can't take shifts off. You take one or two off and they get the momentum."

Per Torts in his pre-game presser, both Nash and Kreider will skate in warm-ups, and the decision on whether Nash plays tonight or not will be made after that. Says Nash is just "banged up" and would not elaborate.

NYR going on their second powerplay of the game. Perhaps the Caps are taking penalties intentionally because they know the Ranger PP sucks and cannot score goals.
