Capitals vs. Islanders: Game 3 Live Score, Highlights for 2015 NHL Playoffs


After the Capitals rallied to win Game 2 of the series, the Eastern Conference playoff battle between the New York Islanders and Washington Capitals shifts to the Nassau Coliseum.

Expect emotions to be at fever pitch as the Islanders play in the postseason in their venerable arena for the last time before moving to Brooklyn next year.

The Islanders got their split in Washington largely because the Capitals played an uninspired Game 1, but the Caps found their stride in the final 40 minutes of Game 2 when they outshot the Islanders 30-14 and came away with a 4-3 victory.

John Tavares will try to give the home fans something to cheer about as he leads the Islanders, while the Caps will look to Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom for offense in this game.

The two teams face off at noon ET, and we will be here to bring you the goals, key saves and highlights.
