Wednesday, 10.16.2013 / 11:27 AM NHL.com

The last time the New York Rangers and Washington Capitals met, the Rangers left Verizon Center with a 5-0 victory and a ticket to the second round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. That was five months ago, but you can be sure the Capitals haven't forgotten as they prepare to host the Rangers in this week's Wednesday Night Rivalry game (8 p.m. ET; NBCSN, TSN2, RDS2).
