The Capitals will play host to the New York Islanders on New Year's Eve in hopes of rebounding after a rough loss to the Carolina Hurricanes on Saturday. Washington is 3-3 over its last six games but will aim to close 2019 on a high note with the rival Islanders in town.

New York, which entered play Sunday ranked third in the Metropolitan Division with 49 points, faces the Minnesota Wild to start the week before heading to the nation's capital on Tuesday.

These two teams have faced each other since the season opener, when the Capitals won 2-1 on the road.

Here’s everything you need to know before the puck drops Tuesday afternoon.
