Alex Ovechkin has one goal in three games against Islanders defenseman Johnny Boychuk. Barry Trotz said he'll need more from his 29-year-old captain in this series.
Injuries are piling up, as a big contributor for the Caps has been ruled out for two games. The Capitals may now have to turn to a rookie.
The Islanders say Alex Ovechkin incited their fans by saying Verizon Center would be louder than Nassau Coliseum.
The Caps were able to force overtime late, but it didn't take long for John Tavares to respond in overtime.
