Game Preview

It took just one game after the Christmas break for the New York Islanders and Washington Capitals to reduce their margin for error in a tight Eastern Conference playoff race.

The Islanders and Capitals will each look to bounce back from discouraging losses when New York hosts Washington on Friday in a battle of longtime division rivals in Elmont, N.Y.

Both teams were off after lopsided defeats in the New York area Wednesday, when the host Islanders fell to the Pittsburgh Penguins 7-0 and the visiting Capitals lost to the New York Rangers 5-1.
