  • Verizon Center, Washington, District of Columbia

You want a challenge, you say? Well, head to Washington D.C. to take on the Presidents’ Trophy winning Washington Capitals.

How’s that for a challenge?

That’s what John Tavares and his New York Islanders will do tonight after coming off a much needed, and dominating 5-2 victory at home against the Tampa Bay Lightning a night ago.

Trailing the hated New York Rangers by just two points, the Isles will look to avoid the season series sweep against the Caps.

Thanks to the back-to-back nature of tonight’s game, it’ll be Christopher Gibson who gets the nod in net, providing a chance for Thomas Greiss to get a much needed blow.

Braden Holtby will be looking to tie an NHL single-season record with his 48th win.

The puck drops at 7 PM ET tonight.
