He then raced in and disrupted Holtby's bid to play the puck. Nelson then stripped Alex Ovechkin in the corner before centering to a wide-open Bailey in front, from where he fired it inside the left post.The Metropolitan Division champion Capitals were coming off a sluggish performance in a preliminary round-robin tournament in which they finished 1-1-1, managed just five goals and closed with a 2-1 win over Boston on Sunday.The Islanders were the more tested team in eliminating the Florida Panthers with a 5-1 win in Game 4 of their best-of five series on Friday.
