(SportsNetwork. Bradley Chubb Jersey .com) - The New York Islanders will try to avoid losing a season high-tying third straight game for the second time this month on Monday night as they play host to the surging Washington Capitals. The Islanders have surprised many this season as they sit second in the Metropolitan Division with 47 points, two back of the first-place Pittsburgh Penguins. They dropped three straight in regulation for the second time this season from Dec. 6-11, but responded with four victories in a row. That positive stretch was halted with a loss to Montreal on Dec. 23 and the Isles came out of the Christmas break with a 4-3 shootout loss to the Buffalo Sabres on Saturday. It wasnt an encouraging setback despite the point as New York took a 3-0 lead into the third period, but allowed Buffalo to score three times in a 5:12 span to force extra time. The Sabres Tyler Ennis then had the lone goal of the shootout, beating Kevin Poulin in the second round. John Tavares scored twice and defenseman Nick Leddy once for the Islanders, while Josh Bailey and Kyle Okposo had two assists each. New York had won each of its first nine games this season that went past regulation. I thought we controlled most of the game, Tavares said. We had opportunities, we just didnt capitalize. Poulin finished with 23 saves after getting recalled from the minors on Saturday with Jaroslav Halak missing a second game in a row with a lower-body injury. Poulin got the start over backup Chad Johnson. Halak, though, came off of injured reserve on Sunday, one day after getting placed on IR, and could return to action tonight. He had a real good practice here today and he seems to be ready to go for us, Isles head coach Jack Capuano told his teams website on Sunday. If things go well theres a great chance that he could be back in. Halak is 5-4-0 in his career when facing the Capitals, logging a 2.65 goals against average and .897 save percentage. The Isles, who begin a seven-game road trip on Wednesday, will try to slow down a Capitals team that has points in 10 of its last 11 (8-1-2). The lone regulation loss of that span came last Tuesday versus the New York Rangers, but Washington rebounded to shut out the Pittsburgh Penguins 3-0 on Saturday. Eric Fehr scored twice and Marcus Johansson also lit the lamp. Braden Holtby extended his excellent month with 31 saves for his second shutout in four games and third of the season. He is 8-2-2 in December with a 1.98 GAA and .933 save percentage. Hes been really instrumental, basically this whole month, said Capitals coach Barry Trotz said of his goaltender. Though none of his 13 career shutout have come versus the Islanders, Holtby is still an excellent 6-1-1 against them with a 2.06 GAA and .937 save percentage. The Capitals are 5-1-1 in their last seven versus the Islanders and have won nine of the previous 12 meetings at home. River Cracraft Jersey . Thats exactly what happened. And they enjoyed every moment. Durant remained sizzling with 33 points, Serge Ibaka added 22 and the Thunder roared back from an abysmal start -- they trailed 22-4 early -- to embarrass the Miami Heat 112-95 on Wednesday night, erasing that big deficit out of the gate by outscoring the two-time defending champions by 43 points over a 33-minute span. Kevin Hogan Jersey .J. -- The New Jersey Devils are so bad in shootouts, coach Pete DeBoer doesnt mind seeing his team take chances in the five-minute overtime.BROOKLYN - It was widely expected to be one of the more unpredictable drafts in recent memory, but in the end it was Masai Ujiri and the Toronto Raptors that raised the most eyebrows. For the first time all night, as the Raptors were on the clock to make the 20th overall selection, no one had the slightest idea what was about to happen. No leaks, no whispers, nothing. Then came the announcement. "With the 20th pick in the 2014 NBA Draft, the Toronto Raptors select Bruno Caboclo from Sao Paulo, Brazil," first-year commissioner Adam Silver proclaimed with a confused look on his face as the basketball world raced to their internet browsers and Google apps. Who was this Brazilian mystery man? The grainy clip of him shown on the broadcast appeared to be shot from a cell phone. A web search produced a few brief videos, little more. The bio distributed by the Raptors came courtesy of Eurobasket and listed his weight as "n/a". "Theres probably three or four teams that knew about him," Raptors coach Dwane Casey told reporters in Toronto shortly after the selection. Seven days ago Casey was in the same boat. He knew very little about the player that would eventually become his newest 6-foot-9, 205-pound small forward. "I hadnt seen him, didnt know who he was but I was totally impressed when I saw him," said Casey, who accompanied Ujiri on a scouting trip to Houston where they watched Caboclo workout and met with him a week ago. Caboclo had been on Ujiris radar for some time. The Raptors general manager made three trips to see the young Brazilian forward play throughout the season, and he had to be "stealth" about it. In this day and age it seems impossible that such a talent could exist, anywhere in the world, without every team and every scout knowing about him, right? It also seemed impossible that for once, in this age of social media, a pick was not broken on Twitter five minutes before it was made. But thats Ujiri. Thats how he does business, quietly. Expecting to use the 37th pick of the draft, Ujiri promised Caboclo the Raptors would select him months ago and as a result, the forward declined to workout for NBA teams. True to form, Ujiri was not following along with mock drafts, he was not the least bit concerned about how such a pick would be received. He saw something in Caboclo. "Hes a talent," Ujiri said of the 18-year-old and youngest player available in this draft. "I think at the end of the day we will be happy we picked him." Caboclo was not Ujiris primary target. As expected, the Raptors were after Canadian point guard Tyler Ennis, hoping he would fall to them while also trying desperately to trade up for him. Ideally, Toronto had hoped to select Ennis with pick no. 20 and snag Caboclo early in the second-round with pick no. 37. But the plan changed, as they often do on draft night, when the Phoenix Suns took Ennis at 18, two picks ahead of the Raptors. "We decided we lost one," Ujiri said. "Were not going to lose the second one. We jumped on it." The Raptors were fearful that Caboclo, second on their board, wouldnt make it back to them. A couple teams that had intel on the Brazilian and were believed to be interested - Phoenix and Utah - had picks ahead of Toronto and after missing out on a similar prodigy in Greek freeak Giannis Antetokounmpo a year ago, Ujiri was not going to let this target get away. Brian Dawkins Jersey. . The allure, despite the lack of available information, is not a surprise given the rare gifts possessed by the long and athletic Caboclo. The first thing that jumps out watching short clips of the newest Raptor is his 7-foot-7 wingspan. "Bruno is an athletic phenomenon," Casey said. "At [pick no.] 20, you cant go out and get a perfect player but this young man has a chance to hit it big. Hes raw but hes going to be a guy thats going to develop in our program and grow and do a lot of things for us. Defensively hes long, he covers a lot of ground down [and] blocks shots with his length." He passed Caseys eye test immediately and the Raptors coach is confident hell turn heads once he heads north, calling him one of the most athletic players in the draft. "I know a lot of people dont know about him. Were excited to get him. Hes going to be a guy thats going to grow with our program and no one is going to be disappointed once this guy is developed and hits his peak because hes one of those guys that has a chance to hit it big as far as his potential is concerned." After a return to the playoffs last season, the Raptors have the luxury of bringing Caboclo along slowly, allowing him to learn in practice and on the bench, without the pressure of having to produce at a high level in his rookie campaign. Among other things, hell need to get bigger and stronger, hell need to get comfortable with the NBA game and his familiarity with the language will also be a work in progress. Upon meeting the 18-year-old Brazilian, Casey asked him who his favourite player is, to which Caboclo responded, "Kevin Durant". "Can you guard Kevin Durant," Casey asked and without hesitation the young man replied, "yes". Casey was impressed with his willingness and ability to learn on fly, a quality that should serve him well when he does join his new team. "Hes a smart young man, his basketball IQ is high," said the Raptors coach. "He knows how to play, has a great feel for the game. Hes going to be a clean slate as far as a guy to work with." Caboclo spent draft night in New York getting his visa sorted out before he makes a quick trip to Toronto over the weekend, where hell be introduced following a workout at the ACC on Saturday. Next week hell meet up with some of his new teammates and coaches in Los Angeles and is expected to participate in Summer League with the Raptors next month. Although theres no telling what role hell have with the team or to what extent hes able to produce right away, Caboclo will be a member of the Raptors this coming season. The Raptors were able to add a more seasoned player with the 37th pick in forward DeAndre Daniels, a proven winner and member of the reining National Champion UConn Huskies. Daniels, 22, averaged 13.1 points and 6.0 rebounds with Connecticut last season. "Hes a good athlete also," Casey said of Daniels. "Hes a guy thats going to go through our Summer League program and well see where he is but I was impressed with his workout." Toronto selected Xavier Thames of San Diego State with the 59th overall pick, quickly trading him to the Brooklyn Nets for cash considerations.
