The Washington Capitals made the trip up to Long Island for their second matchup of the season with the New York Islanders. The Isles are amid a fierce battle for a Wild Card playoff spot in the Eastern Conference and the Caps were looking to throw a big ole wrench into that discussion.
Pierre Engvall kicked off the scoring with a bad bounce off Alex Alexeyev. Dylan Strome put something extra on a shot to tie the game and TJ Oshie gave the Caps a lead late in the first.
Anthony Mantha ended his 19-game streak without a goal to double the lead. Nic Dowd and Nicklas Backstrom added two more.
Caps beat Islanders 5-1!
