Capitals vs. Rangers Recap: Rookies and Regulars Rock Retooled Rangers Roster

In Washington’s return to “normal hockey” they entertained everyone but the New York Rangers in a decisive 5 to 1 victory on home ice.

Here’s Wednesday night’s Plus/Minus:

Plus: Alex Ovechkin skated in his 17th consecutive opening night for the Capitals and, as always, impressed.

Minus: Zero nationally televised close ups of Chris Drury.

Eleven more notes on the game:

  1. After successfully killing an early minor penalty the Capitals struck on their first power play. Puck movement from Evgeny Kuznetsov and Ovechkin afforded T.J. Oshie a tap-in from atop the crease.
