Bailey helps Islanders rally to beat Capitals 4-2 in Game 1

TORONTO (AP) Islanders coach Barry Trotz isn't surprised the Washington Capitals, his former team, is unhappy with Anders Lee.

Trotz didn't see anything wrong with Lee's play in a 4-2 first-round series playoff-opening victory in which the New York captain set the tone with a big hit on Capitals play-making forward Nicklas Backstrom, and then scored a key goal in the Islanders rallying from a 2-0 deficit Wednesday.

"Playoff hockey should be right up Anders' wheelhouse, if you will," Trotz said. "He's big. He's strong. He scored an important goal. He had a hit. And he responded to (Tom) Wilson's challenge. What more can you ask from a leader."
