Nicklas Backstrom scored a goal in Washington's 2-1 overtime loss to the Islanders.
Islanders forward Kyle Okposo opened the scoring the first goal of the game in the second period, but Backstrom tied the game at the 13:54 mark of the third period. The game went to overtime and John Tavares ended the game just 15 seconds into the extra frame. Backstrom has been very good in the post-season so far, but the Caps still find themselves down 2-1 heading into game four on Tuesday night. The 27-yearold now has two goals and four points in his first three playoff games in 2015. Apr 19 - 3:40 PM
