It's Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals tonight between the Capitals and the New York Rangers. For the second straight game, midtown Manhattan will provide the backdrop as Washington holds a two games to one lead in the best-of-seven series. The Caps are hoping to depart the Big Apple tonight with a three games to one series lead, while the Rangers are looking to draw even before Friday's Game 5 back at Verizon Center.
Here is today's Capitals Minute, featuring Troy Brouwer and his view on the off day in New York Tuesday. The Caps were to have practiced at Prudential Center in Newark, but were given the day to rest and refocus instead from coach Oates. The team will hit the ice at 11:15 for the morning skate today, with a 7:30 puck drop tonight from Gotham.
