The Islanders are led by players drafted in the 9th round. Do they even have a 9th round anymore?
Richard Park's 6 goals against the Caps (21 GP) in his career is tied with Philadelphia (29 GP) and Calgary (28 GP) for the most against any team.
New York is 5-0 in the past five games that John Tavares has picked up a point.
Kyle Okposo has swine flue. Sucks.
Radek Martinek is out for the season. Sucks.
Andy Sutton has scored eight times (35 GP) against Washington, the most against any team. Florida (30 GP) and Buffalo (21 GP) are tied for second on that list with three goals against by Mr. Sutton.
Brendan Witt scored two goals in his final 108 games with the Capitals back in 2003-2004 and into 2005-2006...He already has two goals in 17 games this year for the Islanders...and they came in the same game.
Frans Nielson's six points (six GP) against Washington is more than any other team.
Nate Thompson has 11 PIM this year. If he doesn't have at least 16 by the end of tonight's game, part of Washington's game-plan was flawed.
In his last four starts, Dwayne Roloson is 4-0 with a GAA under 2.00 and a .939% save percentage.
