GAME ON! Caps @ Rangers Game Preview 10-5-2006

Washington Capitals (0-0 0 points) at New York Rangers (0-0 0 points):
Capitals Game #1, Road Game #1, NHL Game #5.

Madison Square Garden, New York, NY. 7:05 pm. Washington TV: Comcast SportsNet Mid-Atlantic. Radio WTEM 980 AM. New York TV: MSG. Radio ESPN Radio 1050 AM. NHL Center Ice: MSG feed.


Tonight the Caps and the Rangers start their NHL seasons for real. The Caps are starting year two of their rebuilding project. The Rangers are trying to erase the memory of their collapse last year which resulted in a playoff spot that they were swept out of in the first round.

What The Natives Are Saying:

Not much in terms of local media previews on this game. Times overall season preview. A.O.'s is a piece of the puzzle and being built around. (Com)Post keys to the season. Washington Caps.com. Caps pdf game notes.

Open Source Intelligence:

As much as I hate putting anything written by Larry Brooks under any category that includes the word "intelligence" this is it from the New York Post. New York News Day. All the news the New York Times has made up today. Rangers.com. Rangers game notes.

Neutral Views:

NHL.com, AP wire.

What Do I Expect Tonight? A typical, slow starting opening night game. Both teams will be looking to get their legs underneath them, learning about new linemates, and shaking off the rust that wasn't taken care of in the preseason. The Rangers will be playing in front of a home crowd with a bit of extra emotion. That should give the Rangers the edge in this game tonight.
