CAPITALS (16-3-4) at RANGERS (8-8-2)

8 p.m. ET; NBCSN, TVAS

 

The Game

Nicklas Backstrom will miss his first game of the season when the Washington Capitals play the New York Rangers at Madison Square Garden on Wednesday.

Backstrom, the Capitals center who has 18 points (four goals, 14 assists) this season, is out with an upper-body injury and considered day to day, coach Todd Reirden said.

The Capitals are 8-0-1 in nine road games since Oct. 12. The nine-game road point streak is the longest in the NHL this season.

The Rangers are coming off back-to-back road losses to the Tampa Bay Lightning and Florida Panthers. They are 3-1-1 in their past five home games.

 

Players to watch

Capitals forward Alex Ovechkin needs one power-play goal to tie Hockey Hall of Famer Teemu Selanne (255) for third place in NHL history.

Rangers forward Artemi Panarin has 17 points (five goals, 12 assists) in an 11-game point streak, the longest of his NHL career.

 

They said it

"We've been pretty fortunate here over the years, not too many guys have been out of the lineup, but when someone did have an injury, the guys that came in did a phenomenal job. … It's a great opportunity for everybody to get out there and show what they can do." -- Capitals forward Tom Wilson

"We've just got to avoid those mistakes where we think offense when we just have to manage the game. We went up 3-2 [against Florida] and as our tendency has been throughout the season we start cheating. … We've been addressing it." -- Rangers coach David Quinn

That could be huge if that line gelled and could play together for a extended time, really sets up the other two lines with Zib, Strome, Panarin, Kreider, Chytil, and Buchnevich.

He is, but once he gets 2 minutes he takes a free borderline shot at Buch knowing they will never call a second penalty. Free hits on the Russian.

I really like Howden line, Lemieux is going to keep working his ass off until he adds some offence to his game.

Lemieux being able to do that makes Haley all the more expendable.

Flashes of good solid hockey are becoming more and more prevalent. This team’s play is on a steady growth. Slower than we would all like but very evident. Another night where a lot of guys were pulling on the oars, a nice effort.

This team showed some moxie last night. The young guys are developing confidence and a bit of an attitude. So cool to watch. Reminds me of the late 70's and early 80's group.

Kreider and Trouba are stepping up in the leadership roles. Kreider's hip check on Wilson, just before the fight with Lemieux, was a nice message being sent by a player who has not used his size and strength enough in his career. Perhaps he's waking up. Only took him 8 years.

The Caps targeted Buchnevich, Howden and Hajek all game. I thought they stood up well against some big guys who knocked them down. They refused to back down and never shied away from further contact. They took hits to make plays, and Howden got the last laugh with the goal that sealed the game. Their maturation is going well.

Lemieux is the player I've wanted on this team for years. If he wasn't a Garden favorite before last night, he is now after his fight with Public Enemy #1, Tom Wilson. That is shaping up to be a great rivalry within the rivalry with those two guys.

I caught myself thinking he was Claude Lemieux watching him skating last night, very similar. Brendan was a helluva a get for Gorton one that will be remembered for a long time, he’s got a tremendous future with so much more growth to come in his game. I think he’s got 25 goal a year potential and he could get there playing with Howden and Kappo. Definitely a exciting kid line to get Ranger fans excited. Plus it leaves Zib, Strome, Chytil, Kreider, Buchnevich, and Panarin to make up two more solid lines.

He is THE perfect bottom 6 winger in today’s NHL.
20 goal potential, gritty, responsible

Just reminds me of a Claude, Bickell, Hollweg, Prust hybrid

You can give him shifts with Panarin, Kakko, Buchnevich for protection & he will hold his own. Couldn’t be more pleased.
