John Carlson scored the lone Capitals goal on Saturday.
Carlson's power play effort was his first of the post-season. The 3-1 loss to the Islanders forces a Game 7 on Monday in Washington. "We know what we’re getting ourselves into," Carlson said. "We know they’re a team that forechecks hard. We know they skate and can move the puck and they’ve done that. We’ve got to do a better job slowing them down out of their zone and through the neutral zone. And we’ve got to bury our chances. I feel like we had a ton of them." Apr 26 - 9:05 AM
