With division title at stake, Islanders start series vs. Capitals

The New York Islanders finally returned to playing their brand of hockey Tuesday night -- and in the nick of time for the three-game series against the Washington Capitals that may determine more than just the East Division champion.

The Islanders and Capitals are scheduled to battle for first place Thursday night, when New York hosts Washington in a battle of longtime rivals in Uniondale, N.Y.

The Islanders moved into a tie for first place with the Capitals on Tuesday night, when Josh Bailey had his first two-goal game in more than two years in a 6-1 win over the visiting New York Rangers. Washington hasn't played since Sunday, when it fell to the host Boston Bruins, 6-3.
