It’s Go Time! … Capitals at Rangers

Game 14. [2]
Capitals at Rangers.

First meeting of the season, the first since Game 7 of that second-round playoff series last spring, which included a triple-OT [3] Rangers win in D.C.

Rick Nash, who has an undisclosed injury (banged up) and Chris Kreider, who was recalled from Hartford in case Nash can’t play, both skated in warmups and it will be a game-time decision on which of them plays.

Henrik Lundqvist starts in goal. Stu Bickel is prucha’d.

J.T. Miller plays his sixth NHL game, which means the clock starts on his entry-level contract. Again, this has been a non-issue from the start.

The Capitals, who got off to a woeful 2-8-1 start, have won three in a row. They will be without D Mike Green, the QB of a potent power play, so ex-Ranger Tom Poti is expected to play in his spot.

Since people ask, John Amirante does his second straight national anthem tonight.
