In the wake of Islanders' fans reported abuse of Caps fans, the Islanders released a statement.
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.
