Wowza! The Islanders win Game 5 in the second overtime and live to fight another day. Jordan Eberle was the one to seal the deal in that 2nd OT tonight but let's talk about what went down before that.
Today the Tampa Bay Lightning body-slammed the New York Islanders in their Game 4 and it has pushed the Islanders to the brink of elimination.
Don't care that the Lightning are leading the Islanders 2-1 in this series, now that the Islanders have squeaked out a win--we're cooking with gas.
I know I said this series would be filled with goals but I did not have a 10-goal Game 1 in my plans.
Both teams I was rooting for to make it to the final 4 were just eliminated withing 24 hours of each other. Never ask me for betting advise (unless it's horses).
Both the Flyers and Canucks could have been sent packing tonight but just to make life interesting, both teams beat their rivals and kept the series going.
The Islanders had the chance to send the the Caps packing today but Ovi and his boys decided that this wasn't their time to go.
Today, interim GM Tom Fitzgerald made two trades to try and brighten the Devils' future.
Spoiler: I didn't pick McDavid
After a 1-3-0 start, the New York Islanders have got it together and have won the last 10 games in a row.
