The Capitals hope that rookie goaltender Braden Holtby can continue to anchor the team from the net. He boasts an impressive .931 save percentage in the playoffs.

Many Washington Capitals fans are "rocking the red" today ahead of the Eastern Conference Semifinal matchup tonight at the Verizon Center.

The Caps will be looking to take the series lead when they face off against the New York Rangers tonight. After splitting the first two games in New York, the Caps gained the home-ice advantage for the remaining five games, and they'll try to maintain it with a win in game three.

But in this year's playoffs against Boston and so far against New York, the Caps have done better on the road, winning four of six road games but just one of three games at home.

Still, in the regular season the Caps had the third-best home record in the Eastern Conference and they went 5-1-1 in their last seven home games. They'll look to return to that form tonight.

The puck is set to drop in game three at 7:30 p.m.
