Capitals aim to increase intensity in Game 2 vs. Isles

The Washington Capitals did not need a reminder that the New York Islanders have been playing urgent playoff hockey for almost two weeks.

They sure received one Wednesday afternoon.

The Capitals strive to match the Islanders' intensity on Friday night, when they face New York in Game 2 of their best-of-seven Eastern Conference first-round series in Toronto.
