The Rangers host the Capitals on Wednesday to wrap up their eight-game regular-season series against one another. New York was eliminated from playoff contention for the third time in the last four seasons after falling 6-3 to Washington on Monday night.

Caps forward Tom Wilson was fined $5,000 for roughing Rangers forward Pavel Buchnevich on Monday. Wilson was assessed two minor penalties for roughing and a 10-minute misconduct for the second-period altercation. Artemi Panarin was also involved in the altercation with Wilson and did not return for the third period because of a lower-body injury. Panarin has been ruled out for the rest of the season.

Alex Ovechkin returned to the lineup on Monday night after missing the previous four games with a lower-body injury, but exited the game after just one shift in the first period (39 seconds long).
