Game Preview

In something of a role reversal from recent years, the grinding Washington Capitals host the high-scoring New York Islanders in a Metropolitan Division battle on Wednesday.

With Alex Ovechkin leading the way, scoring hasn’t been much of an issue for Washington, traditionally. This season, however, the Capitals’ average of 2.39 goals per game is better than only the San Jose Sharks and Chicago Blackhawks. Additionally, Ovechkin has only five goals in 28 games. His 13-game scoring drought is the longest of his 19 NHL seasons.

Yet even with this inconsistent offense, the Capitals are still getting results. Washington is 3-1-1 in its past five games, including a 2-1 shootout win over the host Carolina Hurricanes on Sunday despite managing only 21 shots on goal.
