New York Islanders v Chicago Blackhawks

Casey Cizikas scored twice for the first time this season and Tom Kuhnhackl had the go-ahead goal and the New York Islanders earned a 4-3 victory over the Washington Capitals.

Former Capitals goalie Semyon Varlamov stopped 36 shots in the victory, helping former Washington coach Barry Trotz remain perfect in three return trips to D.C. since coaching them to the 2018 Stanley Cup.

Brock Nelson also scored in the first period for the Islanders, who won their second straight to close a three-game road trip.
