The Rangers are coming off a five game series victory against the Pittsburgh Penguins while the Washington Capitals took the Islanders to seven games before pulling out the series win. Kevin Klein will be in the lineup tonight for the first time this post season while Mats Zuccarello will be held out of the entire second round with a concussion.

Kevin's Player to watch: Chris Kreider

With 22 points in 41 career playoff games (11-11-22), Kreider is quickly developing the "playoff performer" narrative and I expect a big game from the 6'3 left winger.
