Washington is 35-9-4 overall, 18-4-2 at home and 20-20 with the over/under total. New York is 26-16-6 overall, 10-8-3 on the road and 25-19 with the under. Washington has won four of its last five meetings with the Islanders, including a 4-1 road victory on Jan. 7. These two have pushed or hit the under in five of their last six meetings.
According to oddsmakers at RealBets, Washington is favored at home tonight, as the Capitals are getting odds of -150 to win, while the Islanders are getting a money line of +135 to win. The over/under total for the contest has been set at 5.5 goals.
The Caps have lost two straight and that may have something to do with playing just two games in 14 days to the All-Star break and snowstorm in D.C. The Islanders are 8-3 last 11 vs. the Metropolitan Division and the Caps are 3-9 last 12 after allowing 5 goals or more in their previous game.
