Rangers lose games, patience before facing Caps

The secret to success for the New York Rangers is pretty simple: Don't allow more than three goals per game. Unfortunately for the Rangers, the Washington Capitals might be stirring, and they're coming to town Wednesday night.

The Rangers will look to slow down the high-powered Capitals when the two Metropolitan Division rivals face off in the second of their four scheduled regular-season meetings.

Both teams enter the game in the midst of mini-streaks. The Rangers lost their second straight on Saturday, when they completed a rough two-game road trip by falling to the Florida Panthers 4-3. The Capitals won their second in a row Monday by beating the visiting Anaheim Ducks 5-2.
