Capitals vs. Islanders Second Period Thread

The New York Islanders jumped out to an early lead when ex-Capital Mikhail Grabovski slid one wide of a sprawling Braden Holtby.

That may have been my fault (WARNING: NSFW language below):

The Capitals tied the game up on a textbook top-line dissection by messrs Nicklas Backstrom and T.J. Oshie, the latter one-timing home a juicy Swedish meatball from the slot.

It's all tied 1-1 after one in Washington.

Second period ahead...
