The Caps visit the Rangers in an absolutely huge, pivotal, supremely important, must-win battle for first place. Or, it’s November and, while it’s always nice to bank two points against a division rival, there’s hardly anything resembling a must-win this time of year. In fact, teams only face a must-win in the playoffs when they have already lost three games in a series. Or in the regular season if they are facing mathematical elimination from the playoffs. Nothing else is a must-win.
But anyways, it’s the Rangers, it’s MSG in NYC, and both teams are off to hot starts. So, this should be a fun one. You can find the action at 7 PM on CSN.

There are a lot of great songs about NYC. Here’s one called Cruel City by Augustines, with a video that was filmed in London.
Look, on Halloween, in this section of the pregame, we asked for you to leave pictures of your costume in the comments. Very few of you obliged.
