What channel is Rangers vs. Capitals on today? Time, TV schedule, live stream for Game 2 of 2024 NHL playoff series

The Rangers and Capitals will reignite their series in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference quarterfinals Tuesday night.

New York secured a Game 1 victory Sunday thanks to Jimmy Vesey and Artemi Panarin’s help. As for Washington, the 4-1 loss marked its first since April 11, after it rode a three-game winning streak to earn the final wild-card bid out of the Eastern Conference.

The Capitals are gearing up to level the series against the President’s Trophy winners before it moves to D.C. for Games 3 and 4. It’s worth noting that, historically, teams that fall behind 2-0 in a series have a less than 20 percent chance of making a comeback, a statistic that becomes even more daunting as the Stanley Cup Final approaches.

Nevertheless, New York retains home-ice advantage for Game 2. It had the NHL’s best record during the regular season and is vying for its first appearance in the Cup final since 2014 when it lost to the eventual champion Kings.

Can a young Capitals team find a way out of the hole, or will the Rangers maintain their dominance as the end of April approaches?

Here is everything you need to know before Game 2, including start time, television designation, ticket prices, and much more.
