The Islanders from New York they returned to underdog status after losing two straight on Tampa Bay Lightning. But they are not inside really trouble until they lose two straight at the Nassau Coliseum.
Watch the ESPN NHL Playoffs daily to make up for each post-season day until the Stanley Cup is split in July.
Defeat the Islanders, Lightning became Islanders. The Bolts played a stingy defensive game to win the 3rd game, blocking 21 shots (with 11 players blocking at least one). Tampa Bay is also driven hot Brayden Point, who has goals in six consecutive games.
But the Islands were already here; so far they have had 2-1 in each of their series, before winning in each of the previous two. The Islands need to find more attacks after scoring just five goals Andrei Vasilevskiy in three games so far, so coach Barry Trotz is considering some changes. He is an obvious candidate for attraction Oliver Wahlstrom. Novak was injured in the 5th game against Pittsburgh in the first round and has since failed to break through the squad.
Oh last night
The Golden Knights were less than two minutes away from victory. Then the goalkeeper Marc-Andre Fleury tried to play a puck behind the net, and everything changed. Fleury accidentally kicked the puck to open the ice – recalls his gaffe at the 2004 World Junior Gold Medal match – leaving Josh Anderson push the puck for an equalizing goal with 1:55. Anderson also scored the winner in overtime which gave Montreal a surprising advantage in the series.
Marc-Andre Fleury misses the puck behind the goal, allowing Josh Anderson to equalize for the Canadians.
It was a rich day for the Habs, as coach Dominique Ducharme was forced to miss a game after being positive twice on COVID-19. “I feel like we’ve always responded well to adversity,” the goalkeeper said Carey Price he said. “Tonight was just another example of that. Not having a Home behind the bench was just another twist we’ll have to deal with.” Full view
Three stars of the night
The Habs bought Anderson from the Blue Jackets in October 2020 Max Domi. He was on such a big move – just one goal in the last 24 games – and then he broke out to a great extent.
Anderson scored a goal that sent the game into overtime late in the third, then the overtime winner, in arguably the best game to date as Hub.
The Canadiens wouldn’t be where they are today if it weren’t for their goalkeeper. The price is 10-4 with 0.932 percent savings in this playoff, including another mass appearance on Friday night.
Another game, another goal for the new Vegas defensive player no. 1, which shows why that seven-year contract worth $ 8.8 million a year is worth in this playoff. Pietrangelo now has 11 points in the offseason. He has three goals in this series, which is more than any Vegas striker has.
Quote of the day
“I liked our game. If we can play like that for the next week, I have a hard time believing they will beat us two more times.”
– Vegas coach Peter DeBoer
The goal of the day
A twenty-year-old Cole Caufield scored his second goal in three games, and it was a beauty. And let me think, next year he will technically still be a rookie.
GOAL CAUFIELD – beautiful! #StanleyCup

Moment of the day ‘Because it’s the Cup’
Fans in Montreal were not too happy about the uninvited high stick that remained Corey Perry it looks like this (amid some other objections about the trial).

But it was not possible to keep the veteran in the locker room, going out to celebrate with his teammates.
