Game 1 went to the good guys. Game 2? That’s anyone’s guess, as two of the top teams in the East duke it out for the second-to-last time in the regular season,

More on the game from today’s Clips:

  • Previews of tonight’s rematch in Uniondale from Vogs, Peerless, AP, Reuters, NBCSW, Newsday, and the Islanders, and as always be sure to check in with SB Nation pals over at Lighthouse Hockey for the Isles’ fan point of view.
  • Congrats to Zdeno Chara, who is set to become just the fifth defenseman ever to play his 1,600th career game tonight - and against the very team that drafted him. [NHL, AP]
  • If you missed Ovechkin in OT Thursday night, it wasn’t just because the Isles put you to sleep... the Caps’ captain suffered an injury and is now day-to-day. [WaPo, NBCSW, NHL]

Have at it, babes!
