Rangers Vs Capitals: Pre-Game And 5 Questions

Feb 12, 2013; Sunrise, FL, USA; Washington Capitals left wing Alex Ovechkin (8) in the third period of a game against the Florida Panthers at the BB

The Rangers take on the Capitals tonight at 6 PM. The game can be seen on NBC Sports.

Here are some quick hits:

  • Henrik Lundqvist is in net tonight for the Rangers.
  • Mike Green will not play tonight for the Capitals. He’s suffering from a lower body injury.
  • Braden Holtby is in net tonight for the Capitals.
  • The Rangers did not have a morning skate today. Don’t know if Rick Nash will play or not.

Five Questions:

1) Is Ovechkin held scoreless tonight?

2) Does King Henrik get his first shutout of the season tonight?

3) Does maybe being mentioned in a trade for Ryan O’Reilly light a fire under Del Zotto?

4) Who’s job is it to stop Ovechkin tonight? Staal or McDonagh?

5) Does Brad Richards find his groove tonight?
