For the fourth straight playoff series, the Islanders come back home for Game 3 with the series tied up at one apiece. In the last two series, New York has won the third game to take an early lead. Against Tampa Bay, the Islanders will look to rebound from a disappointing last four periods on the road in front of their home Brooklyn crowd.

The New York Islanders ousted the Florida Panthers in six games despite scoring first one time in the series. In the Second Round against the Tampa Bay Lightning, the Islanders allowed the opening goal in the first two games, yet found a way to split those games on the road. Now with the series shifting back to Brooklyn, the team’s main focus should be getting the opening tally.

Blog: Leddy, Isles Could Take That Next Step

View From Section 317's picture

So far in this second round playoff series between the New York Islanders and the Tampa Bay Lightning it’s been a battle of 2009 draft picks. John Tavares, the first overall pick in 2009 scored two points in the Islanders game one victory. Victor Hedman, the number two overall pick in 2009, also scored two points in the second game to lead the Lightning to a 4-1 victory. Both teams will be making adjustments for the next two games in Brooklyn and both players from the 2009 draft class will be leading their respective teams, as they should. However, another first rounder from that 2009 draft, 16th overall by Minnesota, that could tip the scale to the Islanders favor is Nick Leddy. During the regular season Leddy will get you anywhere between 35-40 points a year. The earlier part of his playoff career started when he was in Chicago playing behind defenseman like Duncan Keith and Brent Seabrook.

New York Islanders vs Tampa Bay Lightning Exemplifies Need For Playoff Change

Islanders Insight's picture

With the New York Islanders heading into game 2 with a 1-0 lead over the higher seeded Lightning, is it time for the NHL to consider a playoff formatting change?  The New York Islanders have been systematically robbed of their good performance this year by a corrupt NHL playoff system. To increase TV ratings, the NHL […]

Hockey from the Blind Side, Still Playing Hockey in May … Somehow

View From Section 317's picture

So the 23 year “curse” or whatever you want to call it ended last Sunday with the New York Islanders defeating the Florida Panthers in game 6 of their opening round playoff series. Words could not describe how good that made me feel. I would even say that when JT scored the overtime game winner, it was a rather emotional experience for me personally, as my mind looked back on the years since David Volek’s overtime winner against the Penguins and all that has happened to the Isles since then.

Then, on Wednesday after I had spent the day walking the fields and hills of Gettysburg and was awed by the history and the solemnness of those 25 square miles of American history from what was the turning point of the Civil War in 1863, I was thrilled and, yes, surprised by an Islander 5 to 3 victory over the Lightning to open the second round. Well, let me say that I was thrilled by the first two periods of play …

John Tavares leads the way as captain

Islanders Insight's picture

John Tavares continues to emerge as the New York Islanders top player but is hidden in the New York landscape. John Tavares has finally arrived as a mini superstar.
