This should be another good one as both teams had a chance to rest one day and practice on Friday after a brutal three overtime game on Wednesday night that lasted into Thursday morning. Both teams should have heavy legs and while the Caps needs this game desperately, they will still rely on defense and counter-attacks to win. The Rangers will do the same and rely on star goalie Henrick Lundqvist.
