Schultz scores in final minute, Capitals beat Islanders 3-2

WASHINGTON (AP) After killing off a five-minute penalty in the third period against an opponent that had gone to overtime the last four games, the New York Islanders thought they'd also get there against the Washington Capitals and pick up at least a point.

But then Justin Schultz scored with 26.4 seconds left to give the Capitals an emotional 3-2 victory Tuesday night after losing two more key players to injury. Finishing the game without centers Nicklas Backstrom and Lars Eller and missing five other prominent players, Washington matched a franchise best with points in the first seven games of the season.

All this without captain Alex Ovechkin, center Evgeny Kuznetsov, defenseman Dmitry Orlov and goaltender Ilya Samsonov because of COVID-19 protocols, and winger Tom Wilson because of a lower-body injury.
