The Caps visit the Rangers in an absolutely huge, pivotal, supremely important, must-win battle for first place. Or, it’s November and, while it’s always nice to bank two points against a division rival, there’s hardly anything resembling a must-win this time of year. In fact, teams only face a must-win in the playoffs when they have already lost three games in a series. Or in the regular season if they are facing mathematical elimination from the playoffs. Nothing else is a must-win.
But anyways, it’s the Rangers, it’s MSG in NYC, and both teams are off to hot starts. So, this should be a fun one. You can find the action at 7 PM on CSN.
