The Washington Capitals and New York Rangers will do battle twice in a row in The Big Apple and the first of those two games is tonight. The big news is that the Caps and Rangers could be missing a combined seven regulars when they take the ice.
They’ll drop the biscuit at 7 PM and Peter has your recap.

As of right now we know that TJ Oshie will not be playing tonight but both Alex Ovechkin and John Carlson are game-time decisions. A worst case scenario Caps lineup could potentially not have a full 18 skaters. Here is my guess at what that could look like:
Sprong – Kuznetsov – Wilson
Sheary – Backstrom – Mantha
Eller – Raffl
Hagelin – Dowd – Hathaway
Orlov – Schultz
Dillon – TvR
Chara – Jensen
Legend: 🌮 = win; 🚽 = loss; 🤷 = OTL
It has been reported that Artemi Panarin will be in New York’s lineup tonight, but they will miss these other four.
UPDATE: Chris Kreider, Jacob Trouba, Ryan Lindgren and Brett Howden are all out tonight. Artemi Panarin (maintenance) is also not skating this morning.
