Islanders still searching for first point of month

Washington (18-10-3) at NY Islanders (10-18-2), 7:00 pm EST

UNIONDALE, New York (Ticker) -- Nothing has gone the New York Islanders way in December.

The Islanders will attempt to snap a six-game losing streak Tuesday when they square off against the Washington Capitals.

Richard Park netted a goal but New York was handed a 3-1 loss from the Columbus Blue Jackets on Saturday. It was the conclusion of a four-game road trip for the Islanders, who have posted a 1-8-0 record over their last nine contests.

Drifting out of contention in the competitive Atlantic Division, New York has been without starting goaltender Rick DiPietro for the most of the season. The franchise goaltender is hoping to return before the end of the month.

His replacement, Joey MacDonald is 10-14-2 with a 3.20 goals-against average and .900 save percentage on the season.

The Capitals do not share the Islanders' woes. Washington has won three straight contests and is starting to pull away in the Southeast Division.

Nicklas Backstrom and Michael Nylander both scored as the Capitals pulled out a 2-1 triumph over the Montreal Canadiens on Saturday.
