The New York Rangers and Washington Capitals begin the second round of the 2012 NHL Playoffs on Saturday afternoon.
Neither team is operating with much rest after both squads needed seven games to prevail in round one.
The Rangers survived a real scared from the 8th-seeded Ottawa Senators to win 2-1 in Game 7. Henrik Lundqvist made 27 saves and Dan Girardi's tally 9:41 into the second period turned into the series-winner.
The Capitals ousted the defending Stanley Cup champion Boston Bruins in round one when Joel Ward scored an overtime goal on the road in Game 7.
