The Beginning Was Harsh!
The Islanders were on the verge of saying goodbye to America. This was even before they could even correctly introduce themselves.
But time doesn’t always remain the same every time, and the Islanders are the best example. On Friday night under the Edmonton bubble and in front of a national audience in Games 1 and 2 of the Eastern finals, the Islanders made a significant comeback.
Yeah, it’s the truth. Just hold the butterflies in your stomach that might be tickling you how?
Cal Clutterbuck said“All you have to do is look at the amount of time we’ve put into this whole process,” after the 5-3 empty-net aided victory.
He also added, “I just think the way the guys are, the way that we are, I don’t think that packing it in is really a part of this team.”
The Islanders Played Well
Well not bragging the teams have put in every single effort to make this stunning win. They have played in their most assertive manner.
The Islanders grabbed the game by the throat. Moreover, they got the victory when Brock Nelson beat Andrei Vasilevskiy on a right-circle one-timer at 16:25 after the Lightning turned it.
On Wednesday, the Lightning had used Nelson’s head like a beach ball against the glass. On Friday, it was time for some sweet revenge. Nelson not only recorded the winner, but he set up Anthony Beauvillier for a 3-1 lead at 13:50 of the second after circling the net.
“Obviously it was a dirty play, but the Islanders turned the table for the opponent. Although, for two games, the Lightning were saying goodbye. On Friday, the Islanders said, hello.
