On Monday night, the Washington Capitals rebounded from a largely uninspiring performance in Game 1 to even their Eastern Conference Semifinals matchup with the Rangers with a victory in Game 2.  

It wasn't the prettiest of victories, as the Caps needed a couple of late power plays to score the go-ahead goal, but they managed to hold off a furious flurry of New York shots late in the game to preserve the victory.  

With the series shifting back to Washington for Games 3 on Wednesday night, the Capitals are looking to take their first lead of the series on home ice.  

Although the Caps have played surprisingly well defensively, the team still seems to be lacking a spark in the offensive zone, which isn't much of a shock considering how little ice time some of Washington's top offensive weapons have received thus far against the Rangers.  

Heading into tonight's contest, here are five changes the Caps should make in preparation of Game 3.
