The New York Islanders host the Washington Capitals for the final time this season tonight at the Coliseum. It is the second of this three-game series between the Islanders and Capitals; Game 1 went to Washington in a shootout.

Game 2 figures to be another tight game between two clubs battling for position within the East Division.

FIG Picks go here.
