From NBC Sports Washington's Ethan Cadeaux

"Unfortunately for Washington, it wasn't enough to knock off the Florida Panthers. Matthew Tkachuk sniped one past Charlie Lindgren with exactly one minute remaining in the third period, to give the opposition a go-ahead goal in a 4-2 Florida victory. It was a huge two points to keep pace with the Pittsburgh Penguins and New York Islanders in the Wild Card race..." Read more.


Capitals: Alex Ovechkin (72 games, 42 goals, 32 assists): Alex Ovechkin has remained one of the NHL's elite goal scorers, as he continues to lead the way for the Capitals. Ovi missed the last game due to an upper-body injury and it's possible with the Capitals eliminated from playoff contention that the team could continue to rest him. If the Capitals want to see their six-game losing streak come to an end they will really need their top goal scorer out on the ice.

Islanders: Brock Nelson, C (79 games, 33 goals, 39 assists): The Islanders' team leader in goals and points once again, Brock Nelson has had another career year for New York. With the center signed through 2024-25, New York has to be thrilled with his numbers this year. The Capitals' defense will have to keep close tabs on the 6'4 center.
