Thomas Greiss New York Islanders NHL

There was no shortage of goals in the series opener between the Florida Panthers and New York Islanders but if you’ve been paying attention to the previous meetings between these two teams, that should come as little surprise. The two clubs get right back at it as Game 2 is set to go in Sunrise Friday night.

John Tavares, who entered the series with one point in three regular season meetings with the Panthers, tallied one goal and two assists in the series opener, stealing away home-ice advantage from the Panthers.

Isles netminder Thomas Greiss was pelted with rubber all night long but managed to stop 42 of the 46 shots he had faced, outplaying Roberto Luongo on the other end of the ice. The Panthers goalie never seemed on his game as he allowed five goals on just 26 shots.

The win continued a string of strong performances away from home for the Isles. They’ve now won their last four games away from Brooklyn.
