Rangers vs. Capitals Open Thread
The Mats Zuccarello-less New York Rangers are in Washington D.C. to take on the Capitals. Both the Rangers and Capitals are playing in the second half of back-to-back games, after the Rangers won 5-2 over the Devils and the Capitals fell 5-2 to the Sabres.
After yesterday’s game, Zuccarello was traded to the Dallas Stars, which you can read about more here and here. In anticipation of more trades, the Rangers will once again will not play Adam McQuaid and Kevin Hayes, and will roll with the same lineup as yesterday with one change — Henrik Lundqvist in net.

D pairs the same as well:
In goal, it will be Henrik Lundqvist today.
On the other side of the ice, Pheonix Copely will be between the pipes for the Capitals.
