Rangers Look to Clinch Better Finish Over Islanders

Despite the New York Rangers trading almost everyone worthwhile on their roster, they could still very well end up finishing ahead of their in-state rivals in the standings.

It continues tonight on the road, as they complete a home-and-home series with the Washington Capitals at Capital One Arena (8:00 PM, NBCSN).
