New York Rangers Form & Team News


New York’s postseason aspirations have been dealt a blow with four defeats in their last six games. 

They did thrash Philadelphia 9-0 earlier this week, but the Rangers need to find some consistency having won back-to-back games on just three occasions.

The Rangers have concerns over three players heading into this matchup.

Igor Shesterskin (lower body) and Phillip Di Giuseppe (Health & Safety Protocols) both sat out the win over Philadelphia on Wednesday night.

Justin Richards will remain sidelined until he passes the league’s COVID Protocol procedures.

Washington Capitals Form & Team News


Washington have dropped both games against New York this season, but they are a team in form right now.

The 3-1 win over the New York Islands was their sixth straight victory.

This run has kept them top of the East and set them up nicely for this meeting with a team who has had their number so far this season.

Washington will be without Michel Kempny, who has been sidelined since undergoing surgery to repair a torn Achilles tendon back in October.

They also have doubts over Lars Eller after he missed a second straight game due to a lower body injury.
