2013 Stanley Cup playoffs: Capitals-Rangers first round schedule

(Kevin Lamarque/Reuters)


The Capitals will have to wait a few more days than expected to kick off their Eastern Conference quarterfinal series. Washington will host the Rangers for Game 1 on Thursday at Verizon Center and the next three games will follow every other day.

Should the series go the distance, though, things will get interesting as Game 6 and 7 are scheduled for back-to-back days. If necessary the Capitals and Rangers would play Games 5, 6 and 7 in three days with travel between each contest.

No. 3 Capitals vs. No. 6 Rangers first-round schedule

Game 1: Rangers at Capitals, Thurs., May 2 at 7:30 p.m. (CSN, NBC Sports Network)
Game 2: Rangers at Capitals, Sat., May 4 at 12:30 p.m. (NBC)
Game 3: Capitals at Rangers, Mon., May 6 at 7:30 p.m. (CSN, NBC Sports Network)
Game 4: Capitals at Rangers, Weds., May 8 at 7:30 p.m. (CSN, NBC Sports Network)
Game 5*: Rangers at Capitals, Fri., May 10 at 7:30 p.m. (CSN)
Game 6*: Capitals at Rangers, Sun., May 12 at TBD
