Uniondale, NY, United States (4E Sports) - Nikolay Kulemin scored the go-ahead goal to propel the New York Islanders over the Washington Capitals, 3-1 Saturday to force a seventh game in the first-round playoff series.

John Tavares had a goal and assist, Nick Leddy had two assists, and Cal Clutterbuck scored into an empty net with 53 seconds left for the Isles at Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum.

Jaroslav Halak finished with 38 saves for the Isles.

Midway in the third, Tavares gathered the puck in his own zone and took off up the middle but failed to get a shot off with the puck reaching Leddy who fed Kulemin for the tie-breaker.

Capitals goalie Braden Holtby , who made 35 saves, was surprised by how open Kulemin was.

Tavares put the Isles up with seven minutes in before the Capitals tied the game with Carlson's power-play goal with 5 seconds left in the first.

Game 7 is Monday in Washington.
