Tampa Bay stole home ice right back with an overtime rebound to take a 2-1 lead in the best of seven.
Now, the pressure shifts back to the Islanders to grab a home win and even things up.
Tampa Bay Lightning
Tampa Bay literally stole one from the Islanders in Game 3.
The Lightning trailed 4-3 with just under a minute to play as they pulled Bishop for a 6th attacker. Nikita Kucherov, who has done it all postseason long, came up clutch and found the back of the net at the 19:21 mark to tie things up.
In overtime, it was Brian Boyle just 2:48 in who capped off a win for the Lightning.
Tampa Bay’s story this postseason has been their ability to never be out of it. They continue to fight and have the weapons and depth to get themselves back into any game. Such the story in Game 3. With the momentum now, the Lightning can take complete control of this series with a win here.
The Islanders saw their chance to take control slip away in Game 3 and now they just need to get back into this series and maintain par.
New York has been a dominant home team, so the chances of that is very likely. The Islanders are 27-12-5-1 at the Barclays Center this season as they haven’t let losses come in bunches at home.
The Islanders will need a better performance from G Thomas Greiss. The Isles netminder has struggled over the last two games, unable to come up with big saves.
In overtime he allowed the rebound to land right on the backdoor instead of covering it up for the game winning goal.
Jonathan Tavares also needs to get himself going. He’s been held off the scoresheet over the past two games and held a -2 last game.
