Tampa Bay Lightning Form


Tampa Bay never trailed as they beat Florida 4-2 in round one and Carolina 4-1 in round two, but they found themselves in that spot after Game 1 of this semi-final series.

The Lightning produced and uncharacteristically sloppy performance at times as they fell to a surprise 2-1 loss on the home ice.

They responded well in Game 2 though, taking a 4-1 lead into the final few minutes of the game before New York added what was nothing more than a late consolation goal to make it 4-2.

And they now find themselves in front after a 2-1 victory in Game 3 – their sixth victory in seven games on the road in the playoffs.

Tampa Bay will look to make it seven in eight but will have to do it without Anders Nilsson (concussion) and Marian Gaborik (back).

New York Islanders Form


New York have been racking up the upsets so far in this season’s playoffs, dumping out Pittsburgh and Boston to make it to the semi-finals.

They bounced back from 2-1 down to win three straight games and oust the Penguins, and then did the exact same thing to see off the Bruins.

The upsets did not end there though, as the Islanders shut down Tampa Bay on their own ice to win Game 1 of this semi-finals, 2-1, in Florida.

However, their joy was short-lived as they were beaten 4-2 on the road in Game 2 and then lost 2-1 in their first home game of the series on Thursday night.

New York will want to bounce back here and they could have Michael Dal Colle and Olivier Wahlstrom back after both men were taken off the injury report this week.

Anders Lee (knee) and Johnny Boychuk (eye) are both sidelined though.
