well the bad news is the caps lost. the good news is we're all in for a treat now. >> yes, there is going to be fun monday night. a good one. my two favorite words in sports game seven. we all wanted the capitals to end the series with the islanders today but this is why getting home-ice advantage was important to the seem. today it was the islanders taking the advantage of playing at home. barry trots hoping ovechkin and the caps can come away with the clinching win. but first period it was the islanders captain doing the damage. leaving the puck to john taveres and fires on net and beats braden holtby. and the islanders take a 1-0
6:35 pm
lead. under 30 seconds left and on the power play a beautiful save but ovechkin to carlson and he scores on the wrister. we are tied at 1-1. first goal of the series for john carlson. later in the third period tied at 1-1. taveres gets his clock cleaned by ovechkin and he beats holtby and that is the game winner. faked him out good. the islanders take a 2-1 lead. later on caps looking to even things up. two shots on net here. stopped in front. we all thought this was in but it hit off the crossbar. it was reviewed and it could have tied the game but ruled no goal. the islanders added a empty-netter and beat the caps forcing the game seven monday night, but despite the loss the capitals not hanging their heads. >> we're right there again
6:36 pm
tonight. one little thing and they get the go-ahead and we're chasing. so we energize and we have home ice for game seven and we should be excited about playing game seven at home. >> we have to play better than them today that is for sure and we have to be hungrier and play more physical too. >> let's talk baseball now. rainy day down in miami. no problem though. just close the roof to the ballpark and we'll play baseball. in the fourth inning strasburg on the mound facing john carlos stanton, one of the most feared hitters in the league. an rbi single for stranton. prado scores. miami takes a 1-0 lead. two batters later, justin bore at the dish. an rbi single with stanton on third and make it 2-0. this game is still in progress. miami leads it 4-0 -- make it 5-0 in the eighth inning. and the orioles and the red
6:37 pm
sox from camden yards at 7:00. now let's talk basketball. great night at the verizon center last night, the wizards put on a show. they are up 3-0 and no team in nba history has come up from that deficit. it will be the first sweep in franchise history. john wall doing his part. he stepped up big time in game three delivering 19 points and 15 assists. the second straight game with 15 or more assists for wall. the truth -- paul pierce mr. clutch. in his 17th nba season showing he still has game pierce made huge three-pointers down the stretch to give them a commanding lead. but getting to win number four is the hardest challenge of the series. >> it gets tougher and tougher and you have to be more resilient. we have to be more resilient and stay hungry and stay desperate. i want them to stay desperate. i want us to be the desperate
6:38 pm
team come sunday night. >> when you win a game like this i team has little hope coming into the game but when you win a game like this it diminishes hope when you have two more games at home. our hope is not to go through customs. >> they don't want to go back to toronto. >> and they match up very well against atlanta. >>
