Rangers at Capitals, 7:30 p.m. ET on NBCSN

The New York Rangers visit the Washington Capitals in the lone game on the NHL schedule tonight.

The Caps will look to bounce back from a poor start in Game 2, which left them trailing 2-0 after 20 minutes. Washington has won all three games following a loss this postseason.

Washington recalled defenseman Nate Schmidt from the American Hockey League’s Hershey Bears in case Tim Gleason (undisclosed) is unable to play. Gleason did not practice on Sunday.

The Rangers primary concern is shutting down Alex Ovechkin. The Caps’ captain has four goals and four assists in nine playoff games this season including three points through the first two games of the second round. It’s a welcome sight for Washington as Ovechkin had just one goal and assist in seven games during the Caps’ first round loss to the Rangers in 2013.
