The Islanders stole Game 5 in double OT on the road and now have a chance to clinch at home here in Game 6 on Sunday.
After seeing their 2-1 lead get erased inside the Barclay’s Center in Game 4, the Islanders held strong and eventually found a game winner to steal the momentum back.
Florida has done it once already and they’ll need to steal another road win in order to find themselves still in the postseason.
The Panthers have gone 23-15-3 away from Florida this season, so there is some hope there as they do play well in front of the opposing crowd. However, they have lost all the momentum they had from their previous road win in the series after coughing their chance up at home in Game 5. Getting out to an early lead and taking the crowd out of this game is almost a must here.
The Panthers don’t have the playoff experience that most teams have and it can be a bit shocking going into this environment with your season on the line now.
Florida Jaromir Jagr to get himself going. He does have an assist in each of the last two games, but he’s been unable to find the back of the net in this series. He is the leading point getting for the Panthers and with the season on the line, he’ll certainly need to step up and get this team going offensively.
New York Islanders
Speaking of sparks, if the Islanders want to get off to a fast start here, Jonathan Tavares will need to get back on track.
After having a stellar start to the series, the Islanders Captain did not find his way on the scoresheet in Game 5, going a -1. While it didn’t hurt them there, it will be vital he steps up here and gets this offense sparked. He’s done it all series long as he has compiled 3 goals and 4 assists.
G Thomas Greiss was a huge factor in the 2-1 win. He turned away 48 of 49 shots faced and was so clutch in overtime as the Panthers had many chances throughout.
New York is 26-12-4 at home this season as the Barclay’s Center has done them well. This crowd will certainly be rocking and ready to go as the Islanders try to avenge last year’s first round exit.
