The Washington Capitals play for a spot in the Eastern Conference Finals against the New York Rangers on Saturday. Where can fans find the game?

The Washington Capitals try to make it two straight Game 7 victories on the road this postseason as they travel up to Madison Square Garden to play the New York Rangers on Saturday. The game is scheduled to begin at 7:30 p.m. and television coverage will be on NBC Sports Network with local radio coverage on 1500 WFED AM. Other Capitals Radio Network affiliates can be found here.

The Capitals have bounced back from both a triple overtime loss in Game 3 as well as a potentially devastating Game 5 loss after giving the lead away with 6.6 seconds left in regulation. Now they face their biggest challenge of the playoffs, winning a second consecutive game against the Rangers.

Capitals goaltender and new father Braden Holtby will be the key for Washington's success Saturday. With a goals against average of 1.95 and a save percentage of .935, the Capitals will hope that two consecutive seven game series haven't drained Holtby the way it seemed to drain former Capitals goaltender Semyon Varlamov in Game 7 against the Pittsburgh Penguins in 2009.
