The Washington Capitals submitted a poor performance on Tuesday, falling, 3-0, to the New York Islanders at home to snap a three-game winning streak. Washington fired just 17 shots in the loss and were consistently unable to come up with good opportunities to score.
The Islanders scored once in every period. John Tavares scored his 17th early in the first period, and P.A. Parenteau scored the other two. His third-period goal on the power play with 7:22 remaining in the contest effectively sealed the game in New York's favor.
Washington has been able to win in the past while being outshot due to the brilliance of Tomas Vokoun, but it wasn't meant to be on this night.
