The Washington Capitals (13-7-3) are back on top of the Metropolitan Division, thanks to a five game winning streak that has brought their season point total to 29. The Islanders (12-8-2) aren't too far behind, with 26 points to put them in a tie for third in the division. The Caps just faced the Rangers, and they will stay in the Empire State to pay a visit to the Islanders.

Both teams enter Monday's game hot, as the Islanders have won four of their last six contests, including two in a row.

Washington has outscored their opponents 20-12 during the course of their winning streak, and 26-17 as they've won six of their past seven.

The Caps have been particularly effective on the road, as they've won four of their last five games away from home and hold a 6-4-1 road record on the season.

The Islanders have played the Caps close in recent years. Washington holds a 5-4-1 advantage over New York in its last 10 games.

Josh Bailey, LW, Islanders: Bailey doesn't lead the Islanders in either goals or assists (he's second in assists and tied for second in goals), but he does lead the team in overall points thanks to his well-roundedness.

Kuznetsov tips in OT winner for Caps' 6th straight simulation win

Kuznetsov tips in OT winner for Caps' 6th straight simulation win

A two-goal rally for the Minnesota Wild forced overtime, but Evgeny Kuznetsov proved to be the hero for the Capitals in a 4-3 win in the latest NHL 20 sim. The win is Washington's sixth straight simulated win.

Result: Caps 4, Wild 3 OT

1st period

0-1 Wild goal: Joel Eriksson Ek from Mats Zuccarello and Zach Parise

2nd period

1-1 Caps goal: Jakub Vrana from Nicklas Backstrom and T.J. Oshie

2-1 Caps goal (power play): Evgeny Kuznetsov from Tom Wilson and Dmitry Orlov

How the Caps won

1. The second period

Minnesota held a 1-0 lead after the first, but Washington rallied to take control with three goals in the second period. Jakub Vrana got things started with a backhand goal off his own rebound less than three minutes into the second frame. Later in the period, Tom Wilson forced a kick-out save from goalie Devan Dubnyk and the rebound went right to Kuznetsov on the back door for the open net. Alex Ovechkin made it 3-1 with a breakaway goal.

2. Rebounds

This was not Dubnyk's best game. All three of Washington's regulation goals came off of rebounds and Dubnyk showed poor rebound control, giving the puck up in high-danger areas. Even on Ovechkin's breakaway goal, Dubnyk denied the initial opportunity but Ovechkin was able to grab his own rebound and backhand it in.

3. A critical faceoff

Kuznetsov won the opening faceoff to start overtime and that was it. That was the game. Kuznetsov would go on to score on that first shift to win the game as the Caps never gave up possession of the puck. They controlled it from the faceoff to the goal ensuring Minnesota never had an opportunity to win it.

Next game

The Caps were scheduled to play the Florida Panthers on the road Saturday. The game will be simulated with NHL 20 on NBC Sports Washington at 7 p.m.

T.J. Oshie invites fan to Caps game after he made every NHL team's logo out of dominos

T.J. Oshie invites fan to Caps game after he made every NHL team's logo out of dominos

A young Caps fan who has spent the last week making all 31 NHL team logos out of dominos got a shoutout on Twitter and an invite to a game from his favorite player, T.J. Oshie. 

Alex, the 12-year-old behind this project, created a Youtube video which shows all of the domino creations in action. 

The video ends with Alex decked out in a Caps jersey talking about the hard work required to accomplish this feat. 

He also explains that Oshie is his favorite player and that he planned to see the Capitals play at home this season, but the pause on the NHL season caused a change in plans. 

Alex’s incredible work came to Oshie’s attention when his brother reached out to him on Twitter and linked Alex’s video. 

Not only did Oshie respond to Alex’s brother's tweet with praise, but invited the brothers to a Caps game when the season resumed.
