The Islanders return to Barclays Center tonight where they are 8-1-2 this season.
They are 6-2-4 in their last 12 home games against the Capitals.
These teams played last month in DC with the Capitals winning 4-3.
Lars Eller scored two goals, including the game-winner at 16:39 of the third period to give Washington the win.
The penalty kill continues to plague the Isles.
They have allowed at least one power play goal in seven straight games, bringing their penalty kill percentage down to 72.8% (30th in the NHL).
The task doesn’t get easier tonight, as the Capitals are converting on 21.2% of power plays, which is sixth best in the league.
