In a few short hours, the Washington Capitals and New York Rangers will drop the puck on their new seasons. And maybe their gloves too.
Wednesday’s season-opening game is expected to be both “interesting” and a little violent after the two teams had two separate line brawls last season. The Rangers re-made their team over the offseason and added a lot of toughness, including Tom Wilson-problem-solver Ryan Reaves.
Pregame, the Rangers posted what appears to be a coded message for Wilson in a Twitter photo.
