Capitals Beat Islanders 2-1
After losing a hard fought season opener to the Penguins in a shootout the caps returned home to play the Islanders in their home opener. Daniel Winnik scored twice for the Caps.
The second one proved to be the game winning goal in the second period when he deked his defender to the ground and finished the job by burying it past the goalie. The Caps will host the Colorado Avalanche Tuesday as they look to get off to a fast start.
