A look at the Caps' netminders' success against New York

USA TODAY Sports

.875 - Combined win percentage for Braden Holtby and Michal Neuvirth in their respective careers against tonight's opponent, the New York Islanders, their highest win percentage against any team in the League (minimum five games played).

Holtby - tonight's starter - is 2-1-0/1.64/.946 against the Isles all-time, while Neuvirth sports a not-too-shabby 5-0-0/1.83/.933 line.

But don't expect easy sailing for the Caps tonight - they'll face Evgeni Nabokov, who is 12-1-3 with a 2.09 goals against average and .926 save percentage against the Caps in his career.
