The Washington Wizards, pushing for their first playoff berth since 2008, acquired disgruntled point guard Andre Miller from the Denver Nuggets on Thursday in a three-way trade that also involves the Philadelphia 76ers. Cody Whitehair Bears Jersey . The Wizards gave up two seldom-used players — forward Jan Vesely and point guard Eric Maynor. Vesely goes to the Nuggets, while Maynor gets shipped to the 76ers. Philadelphia receives two second-round draft picks, one from the Wizards in 2015 and one from the Nuggets in 2016. Washington receives a protected 2014 second-round pick from the 76ers. Miller hasnt played since his shouting match with coach Brian Shaw in the waning minutes of a loss to the 76ers on New Years Day. The Nuggets initially suspended Miller for two games, then rescinded the suspension and announced that he would instead be excused from all team activities for personal reasons. "Obviously we did our homework," Wizards President Ernie Grunfeld said. "I think that was an isolated situation, an isolation incident. Were going to move past that." Miller, who turns 38 next month, has played with five teams over 15 NBA seasons. He averaged 5.9 points and 3.3 assists for the Nuggets this season. The Wizards are under pressure from owner Ted Leonsis to end their playoff drought, with both team president Ernie Grunfeld and coach Randy Wittman in the final year of their contracts. Washington is currently fifth in the watered-down Eastern Conference, but the team has lost five of seven to fall two games under .500. "Our goal was all along to make the playoffs," Grunfeld said. "Weve put ourselves in a position where were right there." The Wizards will be counting on Miller to add depth to a rotation that has been shrinking during the season, with Wittman asking more from All-Star John Wall and other starters while relying less on the bench. Maynor, acquired last summer to be Walls backup, has disappeared almost entirely, having played just seven minutes in the last 27 games. Vesely has been a major disappointment since being selected with the No. 6 overall pick in the 2011 draft. He has played in 33 games this season, and only five of the last 14, while averaging 3.2 points. Grunfeld said Vesely didnt develop quickly enough into the player the Wizards were expecting. "He wasnt consistent enough for us," Grunfeld said. Richard Dent Jersey . Get interactive with the TSN Community and get updates with TSN.cas Game Night blog right now. This best-of-seven series between the Rangers and Capitals was tied at 2-2 heading into Mondays Game 5 in New York. Walter Payton Jersey . The mixed zone is not a place to make friends.( - A pair of Metropolitan Division rivals square off for the final time this regular season on Sunday afternoon when the New York Rangers visit the Pittsburgh Penguins. The Rangers are 2-0-1 versus the Penguins this season, picking up a pair of wins at home around a shootout loss in Pittsburgh. That setback on Nov. 15 marked New Yorks sixth loss in its past seven trips to the Steel City. New York is looking to get back on track as it ended a two-game slide with Fridays 2-1 win over the Columbus Blue Jackets. The Rangers had won 13 of 14 before taking consecutive shutout defeats to the New York Islanders and Boston Bruins. Marc Staal and Chris Kreider scored in the second period on Friday to break New Yorks scoring drought, with Derek Stepan assisting on both goals. Stepan had sat out the previous contest with an upper-body injury. Henrik Lundqvist did his part with 35 saves as New York answered after losing consecutive games for the first time since Dec. 1 and 6. You could see when we scored that first goal we relaxed a bit, Lundqvist said. We started playing a lot better. We had more speed in our game. Owners of a wild card spot in the Eastern Conference, the Raangers are four points back of the second-place Penguins in the division. Dick Butkus Jersey. Pittsburgh is three points behind the front-running New York Islanders and coming off a 6-3 setback to the first-place club. The Penguins led 3-2 going into the third period thanks to a pair of goals by Sidney Crosby, who also assisted on David Perrons fourth goal in five games since being acquired from Edmonton. However, the Islanders netted four goals in the third period. We just didnt raise our level enough in the third period, Crosby said. At the start of it, we did. But as the period went on, we didnt make smart plays. We hurt ourselves with some of the decisions we made. Theyre a good team. You give them chances like that and theyre going to put them in. Kris Letang had a pair of assists and Marc-Andre Fleury yielded five goals on 34 shots as the Pens had a two-game win streak snapped. Fleury is 27-15-9 with a 2.74 goals against average, .909 save percentage and four shutouts in 52 career meetings with the Rangers, all but one of those starts. Lundqvist has faced the Pens 54 times, going 27-19-8 with a 2.41 GAA and .916 save percentage while shutting them out three times.
