Should we start calling the Islanders the comeback kids?
They certainly would be deserving of it after Wednesday’s Game 1 come from behind victory over the Washington Capitals. The Islanders rallied from a 2-0 deficit to win 4-2 after playing a less than stellar opening 40 minutes and giving the Capitals seven power-play chances.
Josh Bailey scored the game-winning goal in the third period and Anthony Beauvillier sealed the win with an insurance goal later on. Jordan Eberle and Anders Lee also scored for New York.
