NBCSN’s coverage of the 2020-21 NHL season continues with Tuesday’s matchup between the New York Islanders and Washington Capitals. Capitals-Islanders stream coverage begins at 6:30 p.m. ET on NBCSN. You can watch the game online and on the NBC Sports app by clicking here.

If the East standings remain the same going forward, Tuesday’s clash between the Islanders and Capitals will be a preview of First Round matchup in the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Both clubs are in pursuit of first-place Pittsburgh with just four points separating all three teams.

Washington is 6-2-0 in its last eight games, including wins over the Islanders on Thursday and Saturday. New York is 3-4-1 in its last eight contests.

The Capitals celebrate the return of fans to Capital One Arena for the remainder of the 2020-21 season starting on Tuesday night. The team will welcome and recognize hundreds of frontline workers for their service during the COVID-19 pandemic. Players will pay tribute to the personnel during the game, and in-game content will also spotlight the individuals. Attendance at Capital One Arena is limited to 10% capacity.

On Thursday, the Islanders dropped a 1-0 shootout decision to the Capitals. New York goalie Semyon Varlamov stopped all 28 shots he faced in regulation and overtime to earn his fifth shutout of the season, which is tied for most in the NHL. Varlamov also ranks in the top 10 in wins (17), GAA (2.12) and save percentage (.926).
