    Bailey helps Islanders rally to beat Capitals 4-2 in Game 1

    Islanders coach Barry Trotz isn't surprised the Washington Capitals, his former team, is unhappy with Anders Lee. Trotz didn't see anything wrong with Lee's play in a 4-2 first-round series playoff-opening victory in which the New York captain set the tone with a big hit on Capitals play-making forward Nicklas Backstrom, and then scored a key goal in the Islanders rallying from a 2-0 deficit Wednesday. Playoff hockey should be right up Anders' wheelhouse, if you will,” Trotz said.

    Braden Holtby Takes the Blame for Critical Game 1 Mistakes – NBC4 Washington

    In the third period, after the Islanders rallied to tie the game at 2, Holtby took a cleared puck on a Caps' power play and tried to casually hand it off to Alex Ovechkin without realizing Brock Nelson charging in after them. Nelson would win possession and pass it off to Josh Bailey who scored the game-winning short-handed goal. "Shorthanded goal was just more of a miscommunication," Holtby said.
