The last road game of 2023 is set to kick off tonight in Brooklyn, where the Caps will take on the Islanders in another Metro matchup.

First, some admin stuff:

  • Who: Capitals @ Islanders
  • Where: UBS Arena
  • When: 7:30 p.m.
  • How to watch: Monumental
  • How to listen: 106.7, Capitals Radio 24/7

While it does seem that Max Pacioretty and Ethan Bear are both set to make their season debuts soon…tonight is not that night. Instead, look for Ivan Miroshnichenko to sit out, with Matthew Phillips slotting in on the third line. Here’s how the lines should shake out:

Ovechkin – McMichael – Wilson
Protas – Strome – Mantha
Lapierre – Kuznetsov – Phillips
Malenstyn – Dowd – Aube-Kubel

Fehervary – Carlson
Sandin – van Riemsdyk
Edmundson – Jensen

Lindgren
Kuemper
