The Washington Capitals laid a big ole stinky egg in Game One of their first-round series against the New York Islanders and followed that up by laying just a slightly less stinky egg in Game Two. The Caps were pummeled by the Isles 5-2 and are now in a 2-0 series deficit.
The Caps were out-shot by the Isles 32 to 25 and out-attempted at five-on-five 45 to 43.
Alex Ovechkin gives the Caps a 1-0 lead with his first goal of the playoffs, his franchise-leading 66th playoff goal. Since his playoff debut in 2008, Ovechkin now ranks first in the NHL in playoff goals, passing Sidney Crosby (65).
