Barclays Center Not Exactly Kind To NYI

After splitting the first two games in their series with the Florida Panthers, the New York Islanders head back home hoping for better results in front of their friendly fans than they have recently been accustomed to. Since the start of April, the Isles are just 1-2-1 at the Barclays Center while allowing four goals per game.

Shark Bites
  • The OVER is 9-3 in the last 12 meetings between the Islanders and Panthers.
  • Vincent Trocheck will not play in Game 3, but travelled with the Panthers and could go in Game 4.
  • This will be the first playoff game in the history of the Barclays Center.

John Tavares’ third period goal in Game 2 extended his point streak to six games, as the All-Star has notched six goals and seven assists in the Islanders’ past six outings. Tavares has shed his regular season struggles against the Panthers that saw him put up just one assist in three games.

After an up-and-down performance in Game 1, Roberto Luongo had a fantastic second outing in the series with 41 saves on 42 shots. Though it is unlikely to affect the veteran, it is interesting to note that Luo has never played a game in his career at the Barclays Center.
