59.6 - The Caps’ even-strength CF% through four games against the Islanders during the 2019-20 regular season. In fact, the Capitals had close to 60% of the total shot attempts in three of the four games; only the final matchup of the season series, a 5-3 loss, saw the Caps drift closer to 50% (52.8%, to be exact).

Interestingly enough, only the Bruins had a worse rate of possession than the Isles when facing the Caps this season.
