Tonight the Washington Capitals take on the New York Islanders for their second of four meetings this season. The Capitals overcame a three goal deficit to defeat the Islanders 4-3 in overtime on Jan. 16, powered by two points from T.J. Oshie and a 27 save performance by Darcy Kuemper. The win marked Washington’s largest comeback victory of the season.
It was a rocky January at the time and it was just before things went downhill before the mini fire sale began. The Islanders sit at first place in the Eastern Conference Wild Card with a 34-25-8 record and 76 points. The Caps sit at fifth place with a 31-28-7 record and 69 points. It’s not nice.
The Caps are five points behind the Penguins for the second Wild Card spot while seven points behind the Isles. The Caps extended Trevor van Riemsdyk for three years worth $9 million where he’ll make $3 million each season.
