Islanders-Capitals Preview

(AP) -- It's easy for Alex Ovechkin to believe the Washington Capitals will fare better in the finale of their home-and-home set with the surging New York Islanders than they did in the opener.

Actually getting it done Friday remains a serious challenge for the Capitals, who will try to keep the visiting Islanders from their first six-game winning streak in seven seasons.

John Tavares scored with 23.2 seconds left in overtime and Jaroslav Halak made 25 saves to extend his winning streak to eight games by helping New York (16-6-0) to a 3-2 victory over Washington on Wednesday.
