Islanders want to see more toughness against Capitals

The New York Islanders continue a five-game road trip Tuesday in Washington, D.C., the first of two games against the short-handed Capitals.

New York is coming off of a 2-0 loss at New Jersey on Sunday. The Devils scored both goals in the first period, and that turned out to be enough in the first game of the Islanders' trip.

The Islanders did not play tough enough to appease coach Barry Trotz, who guided the Capitals to the Stanley Cup three years ago.
