Josh Bailey puts on the skills to net the Islanders' second goal after intercepting the puck in the attacking zone.
Josh Bailey continues to pile on the points this season and currently has a six-game assist streak and a seven-game point streak. Bailey recorded three assists on Monday and continues to excel on the top line with John Tavares.
Playing the Caps means going up against Alex Ovechkin, a tall task for any opposing defense. Ovechkin is third in the NHL this season with 10 goals and has enjoyed great success against the Isles in the past. In 46 games, the Capitals’ captain has recorded 50 points (34 goals, 16 assists).
After initially struggling on the power play earlier this season, the Islanders have started to find their stride with the man advantage. New York has scored five goals in the last two games. Take a penalty at your own risk, Caps!
