Rangers Vs. Capitals Preview: Rangers Look For The Weekend Sweep

The New York Rangers will take on the Washington Capitals tonight at Madison Square Garden, as they look to make it three in a row and a weekend sweep.

The New York Rangers will leap right back into action tonight as they take on the Washington Capitals, and will be in search of their third straight win. Just 24 hours ago, the Rangers defeated the Ottawa Senators by a score of 4-1, and Cam Talbot made 27 saves to earn his tenth win this season.

Tonight will be an even bigger test for the Rangers, as they look to shutdown the league leading goal scorer in Alexander Ovechkin. Henrik Lundqvist will get the start tonight for the Rangers, while Philipp Grubauer will get the start for the Capitals. Alain Vigneault will continue to roll with the same lineup as all four lines have been contributing extremely well night in and night out. The full lineup for tonight's game can be found below.
