Does it ever feel great to say that NHL hockey is back again! The NHL paused the regular season way back on March 12 due to concerns surrounding the coronavirus. There are in total 189 games that will not be completed.
There are now 12 qualifying teams from the Eastern and Western conferences determined by points percentage in a “return to hockey playoff scenario”. Seven teams did not qualify.
New York Islanders
The seventh-seeded Islanders will look to take a giant step toward advancing to the NHL’s main playoff bracket when they face the 10th-seeded Panthers in Game 2 on Tuesday afternoon in Toronto.
Jean-Gabriel Pageau and Anthony Beauvillier scored and goalie Semyon Varlamov made 27 saves to lead New York to a 2-1 victory on Saturday afternoon.
Saturday’s victory marked a return to form for the Islanders, who are tied with the Boston Bruins for the second-fewest regular season goals allowed (389) in the NHL since head coach Barry Trotz arrived prior to the 2018-19 season. New York has allowed just one goal in four of its five playoff wins under Trotz.
The win for Varlamov on Saturday was his first in the postseason since April 26, 2014. Bobrovsky also made 27 saves in the opener.
The Panthers enter Tuesday feeling pretty good after outshooting the Islanders 19-17 over the final 40 minutes on Saturday. Jonathan Huberdeau scored Florida’s goal 23 seconds into the third period.
The Panthers are 1-5 in their last 6 vs. Metropolitan.
Varlamov and the Panthers’ Sergei Bobrovsky are expected to face off again in the net.
