Islanders beat Capitals 3-1 to force Game 7

UNIONDALE, N.Y. (AP) Islanders captain John Tavares was still attempting to gather his bearings after being leveled in the corner, when he heard the familiar - and welcome - roar go up inside the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum for what could be the last time.

"Yes! Yes! Yes!" the orange towel-waving crowd yelled in unison as part of its traditional goal chant.

Sparked by Tavares' rush, Nikolay Kulemin scored the go-ahead goal with 9:27 left in a 3-1 victory over the Washington Capitals on Saturday that forced a seventh game in the first-round playoff series.
