The Metro squads deepen their rivalry in Game 4.

Getting in front of the net would be a good thing.

The Islanders played a solid game in game three to take a two to one lead over the Washington Capitals. They'll look to take a commanding three to one series lead tonight in Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum. Just on a 50/50 basis alone, a win tonight would give the Islanders an 87.5 percent chance at advancing in the playoffs for the first time since 1993.

The lineup is the same for the Islanders. Jaroslav Halak is starting in net and if he plays as he did in the previous game, the Islanders will have a stellar chance at winning.

The Capitals will have to make some lineup changes due to injuries. Andre Burakovski is in for Eric Fehr who only played about a minute and a half before being removed last game. Michael Latta is in for Curtis Glencross. Braden Holtby is in net and has been fantastic for the Capitals thus far despite the two losses.
