I feel like people were acting like this series was over because of a game 5 loss. Series was tied at 2. After that game 4 win, it became a 3 game series and Pens won game 1 on their home ice. Stealing that game would have been a miracle. Now we shift back to the Barn where the Islanders are 6-3 all time when facing elimination. This is the way it goes when an 8 seed is trying to pull off one of the greatest upsets in history. Not like anyone expected them with win 4, 5, and 6 all in a row.
Its been a back and forth, every-other-game type of battle. Time to respond back at the Coliseum. Obviously Nabby can’t shit the bed again. And we could use a little help from Vokoun and get him to play more like the 35 year old backup that he is. But there’s no reason to think that Hart Trophy finalist John Tavares and the Islanders can’t send this back to Pittsburgh tonight. It will just make the Hollywood script that much more dramatic.
