With the Islanders dropping Game 4 to the Capitals in overtime, does MSG Networks and Islanders host Shannon Hogan feel like this series is headed to seven games?

"I do think this will be a game seven situation," said Hogan, with Armen and Levack, on 104.5 The Team. "Most people thought that from the get-go. The way the regular season went between these two teams with overtimes and shootouts, they're evenly matched."

Before the playoffs began, the Islanders and Capitals played beyond the first three periods in three out of the four times they faced each other in the 2015 regular season. Not to mention, going into mid-April, the series was tied 2-2, which is ironic, because that's exactly where we sit right now in the post-season.

"They're both physical and they're playing to their strengths," said Hogan. "I totally expected this to be a game seven situation. Which, hey, it's playoff hockey so who's not excited about a seven-game series?"

The Islanders are back in Washington on Thursday night for Game 5. Not to mention, Game 6 on Saturday afternoon, could possibly be the final Islanders game ever played at Nassau Veterans Memorial Colliseum.
