New York Islanders

The Islanders were unable to get the job done at home against Washington. Now they’re faced with the even more daunting task of facing the Caps on the road. All in all, the Islanders are 1-9 in their last 10. Having said that, it’s pretty clear New York has zero chances of winning this evening. Moreover, it’s looking like New York will be missing out on the playoffs this season. That makes it two straight seasons the Islanders have missed out on the season. Considering this is Doug Weight’s first season at the helm, he should be focused on getting better results next season.

Players to Watch: Mathew Barzal (18 G, 52 A, 70 PTS), John Tavares (31 G, 38 A, 69 PTS), and Josh Bailey (17 G, 48 A, 65 PTS).

Washington Capitals

After picking up a 7-3 win over the New York Islanders this past Thursday, the Capitals enter this matchup riding a 3-game win streak. That brings Washington’s record to 40-23-7 on the year, giving them 87-points overall. That total ties them with the Penguins for the lead in the Metropolitan. But more importantly, it gives them a 6-point lead over the 3rd-seeded Philadelphia Flyers. With the end of the season in sight, it’s clear Washington needs a good run to close out the year. It’s either that or risk missing out on the playoffs. As for tonight’s matchup, it’s pretty clear Washington will be coming out on top. After all, they just got done beating up on New York last night. Playing on home ice, online NHL betting players can expect Washington to deliver an even more decisive beating.

Players to Watch: Alex Ovechkin (42 G, 33 A, 75 PTS), Evgeny Kuznetsov (21 G, 48 A, 69 PTS), and John Carlson (13 G, 43 A, 56 PTS).
