The Washington Capitals are in business again at home, this time against a Metro Division rival in the New York Rangers. The Rangers played last night and loss 5-2 to the New Jersey Devils, so this is prime opportunity for the Caps to beat up on some tired legs.
Puck drop is at 7PM on NBC Sports Washington and I will be back for your recap.

Kemper is back baby! The Caps blueliner has been out for over six months after tearing his hamstring off the bone in a game against the Tampa Bay Lightning last season.
