The Rangers and Caps played almost enough hockey for two games on Wednesday in a triple-OT marathon. Will Washington be able to bounce-back from heart-break to even the series?

We're sure the Capitals and Rangers could use a few extra days off after playing almost the equivalent of two full hockey games Wednesday night, but they have to take the ice again today for Game 4.

Marian Gaborik's triple OT game-winner 115 minutes after the puck dropped had to be demoralizing for the Caps -- and Karl Alzner's dogs -- but there's some good stuff: First of all, it was only one game. Secondly, as Travis Hughes pointed out, the New York defense has to be exhausted after playing absurd minutes, even in comparison to Washington. And Braden Holtby looks to be the real deal after holding New York to one goal for nearly two hours. The fact that Henrik Lundqvist did the same to him has to be a concern, obviously.

Here's how to catch today's Game 4:

No. 1 New York Rangers vs. No. 7 Washington Capitals

12:30 p.m. ET -- Game 4, Western Conference Semifinals | Rangers lead, 2-1
