The Washington Capitals entered the raucous concrete lump that was once known as Nassau Coliseum to play the surging New York Islanders and boy did this game feel like playoff time.
Tom Kuhnhackl “scored” to give the Islanders an early 1-0 lead. Got noothing for ya from the second. Jakub Vrana tied things up in tight in the third and Alex Ovechkin gave the Caps a lead on a power play shortly after.
Josh Bailey literally scored an own goal.
Caps beat Islanders 3-1!
