Boy, it’s an early one … 12:30 on NBC, so no real pre-game or post-game.

The Capitals visit for the first time since Game 4 of their playoff series last spring. You remember that game, right? Rangers up by three in the third looking to tie the series … and a double-OT loss. No Humpty-Dumpty today, though. He’s gone, replaced by Dale Hunter.

Ya boys on a two-game winning streak and 6-1-1 in the last eight, 18-5-1 in the last 24. They play the second of three in four days, with a visit to Boston on Valentine’s Day Tuesday.

Henrik Lundqvist starts back-to-backs for only the third time this season — the first two games in Sweden, and Nov. 25-26 against Philly and Washington also.

The Rangers go with the same lineup, which means Ruslan Fedotenko remains sidelined and Stu Bickel is the seventh D-man/winger, as the team has the minimum 20 healthy bodies.
