Some game notes:
- Ryan McDonagh, Mats Zuccarello, Jesper Fast and Rick Nash all took the day off yesterday for maintenance. Those four players will not play tonight in Washington.
- That means we get Pavel Buchnevich back in the lineup, and Matt Puempel and Brandon Pirri. My guess is Kevin Klein remains in the defensive lineup.
- Brady Skjei is a single point away from a 40-point rookie season. Think about that for a minute.
Enjoy the game. Be nice. Maybe watch Washington and be thankful the Rangers won't have to play them until the ECF (if both advance that far).
