The Rangers and Capitals will meet on Sunday afternoon for the fifth of eight meetings between each other this season. The Capitals enter having won nine of their last 10 games, while the Rangers fell 2-1 to the Flyers on Saturday

The Rangers previously beat Philly 8-3 on Thursday behind a six-point outing from Mika Zibanejad (3G-3A).  Zibanejad now has eight goals (including two hat tricks) in his last six contests and has tallied two six-point games in that span.

Washington swept a two-game set with the Devils earlier this week and have now won nine of their last 10 games. Ilya Samsonov recorded his first shutout of the season (24 saves) and Alex Ovechkin netted two goals in Friday’s 4- 0 win to help power the Caps.

Rangers head coach David Quinn could return to the bench on Sunday after missing the last six games on the COVID-19 protocol list. Kris Knoblauch, Hartford’s AHL head coach, has helped the Rangers go 4-2-0 in Quinn’s absence.
