Capitals-Islanders Preview

(AP) -- The crowd has seemingly played just as big a part as the players in the first-round postseason series between the Washington Capitals and New York Islanders.

The Nassau Coliseum faithful, though, are facing the possibility of rooting for the Islanders for the final time.

That's because New York needs to win Game 6 on Saturday to send the series back to Washington, and even if that happens, a loss Monday night in the finale would end the Islanders' season and their time at the 43-year-old arena before they move to the Barclays Center in Brooklyn next fall.
