The schedule for the first round has been released, and the Rangers/Caps will kick off their series on Thursday. The extra day off (other series start Wednesday) is great for the Rangers, as it gives them an extra day to get their guys (Marc Staal, Brian Boyle, Ryane Clowe, Derek Dorsett) healthy.
- Game 1: Thursday May 2nd, at 7:30PM
- Game 2: Saturday May 4th at 12:30PM (NBC)

- Game 7: Monday May 13 TBD
All games are on NBC/NBCSN (or CNBC, but I doubt that will happen with Rangers/Caps).
