Islanders beat Caps in Trotz's return, move into first place

WASHINGTON (AP) Barry Trotz returned to his old home arena to face the team he coached to the Stanley Cup. He left with his new team in first place.

Trotz's New York Islanders beat the defending champion Washington Capitals 2-0 on Friday night to win their fourth in a row and leapfrog his former team into first place in the Metropolitan Division. In true Trotz fashion, the Islanders suffocated the Capitals to win for the 14th time in their past 17 games.

"We just talked about climbing," Trotz said. "It just happened that the Caps were the next team in front of us. Two weeks ago we were talking about Buffalo and other teams like Montreal and just said, `Let's keep climbing and don't look up and just keep going,' and the guys have been really good."
