WASHINGTON, D.C. (ATS Consultants) – Goals should once again be difficult to come by tonight when the Capitals host the Islanders in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference first round at 7:00PM ET.

According to oddsmakers from online sports book GT Bets, the Capitals are -129 money line favorites versus the Islanders, who are +117 money line underdogs. The total, meanwhile, is sitting at 5 goals.

The last two games between these two teams ended in overtime (2-1) and both teams are struggling offensively. Alex Ovechkin has just two goals in four games, but the good news is that Braden Holtby is now healthy and has stopped 76 of 79 shots in his last two games.

New York hasn't helped its own cause on the power play as the team is 0-for-10 in this series, while Washington is 1-for-7. Look for goals to once again be at a premium tonight.
