Islanders to face Capitals in game 2 of playoff series
A big game on ice for the Islanders tonight - game two of their playoff series with the Capitals.
The challenge tonight for the Islanders is to resemble the team that played the final period in a half on Wednesday. That is when they scored four unanswered goals to shock the Caps.
An interesting storyline tonight, will the Capitals seek revenge for a hit by Anders Lee on Nicholas Backstrum? Backstrum is ruled out tonight due to concussion like symptons.
This is the first playoff meeting between the teams since 2015.
The Islanders also took Game 1of that series, but lost in seven games.
The game starts at 8 p.m.
