For the first time in 23 years the Islanders are moving on in the postseason, snapping a monstrous losing streak in the opening round. The expectations are ratcheted up for the next round because the Isles will face last year’s Eastern Conference champions. Here are three things to look for in the upcoming series:

For the first time in twenty-three years, the New York Islanders will be playing a game one in the second round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Coming off an emotional game six overtime win, the Islanders travel to western Florida to take on the Tampa Bay Lighting who defeated the Detroit Red Wings in five games. Below are our three keys to victory in Game 1.

Key to Game 1 – Stop the Triplets

View From Section 317's picture

Tonight is the start of the second round (doesn’t that have a great ring to it?)

The Tampa Bay Lightning have had a great deal of time to relax and wait for the winner of the Isles/Panthers series.  They had a good 5 game victory against the Wings, with their top forward and top defensemen on the shelf.

And with Steven Stamkos and Anton Stralman still out of the lineup, the Bolts made easy work of the Wings with the “Triplets” lineup of Nikita Krucherov, Tyler Johnson and Alex Killorn.  20 points and 8 of the 12 goals scored were compliments of the number one line.

The Isles and Lightning are similarly matched in the fact that the primary line has been responsible for most of the scoring to date.  Getting involvement from the secondary lines will be crucial to the success of the winner of this series.

When I was a kid, I was a pitcher.  Our town had a “Little League” as well as another baseball organization for which I belonged to.  One year, they had a ‘exhibition’ matchup of our two leagues.  I was the starting pitcher that night (even then in the mid 1970s, having a lefty pitcher was a good thing), and I was at the mound.  There was going to be a picture taken before the first pitch.
