The Washington Capitals flexed their muscles in getting Kevin Shattenkirk last night, inspiring NBCSN to flex its coverage to his debut as his new team faces the New York Rangers.

It’s worth noting that local blackouts may apply.

Shattenkirk’s debut should be fun to watch as Barry Trotz deals with the “good problem to have” in finding the right mix of talented defensemen, but it’s not the only reason to watch. The Rangers are in a dogfight with the Penguins and Blue Jackets in the races for the second and third spots in the Metropolitan Division, and New York has every intention of upsetting the Caps as 2016-17 goes along.

The game is on NBCSN in most markets. You can also watch online and via the NBC Sports App. Click here for the livestream.
