Nelson, Varlamov help Islanders cut Lightning's series lead in half

Islanders Vs. Lightning

Islanders: Averaging 3.3 goals, 5.2 assists, 3.9 penalties and 9.7 penalty minutes while giving up 2.3 goals per game with a.916 save percentage.

The final-minute fisticuffs are likely just the beginning, especially after Alex Killorn's boarding of Brock Nelson in Game 2 led to.

The Bolts tied the score towards the end of the first period after Sergachev took the help from Gourde's assist to score.

Palat took a pass from Nikita Kucherov and poked home a power-play goal to pull the Lightning within one at the 2:32 mark of the third.

Lightning's Johnson tied the game at around 8 minutes left in regulation after redirecting a shot from Cernak.

Pageau was slashed by Kucherov as he scored his empty-netter and turned to fight Kucherov, which set off a brawl near the Lightning net. The goal was upheld upon review. Tampa Bay leads the National Hockey League with 5.9 assists per game, led by Nikita Kucherov averaging 0.8.

Cal Clutterbuck scored in the first, Adam Pelech and Beauvillier scored in the second and Jean-Gabriel Pageau added an empty-netter with 35.7 seconds left for the Islanders.

The Lightning will once again have to play out the series without captain Steven Stamkos. Stamkos stays out on account of his undisclosed lower-body injury.

The Lightning secured the second seed in the Eastern Conference bracket after finishing second to the Philadelphia Flyers in round-robin play.

After exorcising their playoff demons against the Blue Jackets, the Lightning rode Ondrej Palat's hot hand and a game-winning goal in double overtime from Victor Hedman to take down the Boston Bruins in five games. Point and Kucherov are tied for second this postseason behind Colorado Avalanche forward Nathan MacKinnon, who scored 25 points (nine goals, 16 assists) in 15 games before Colorado was eliminated by the Dallas Stars in the Western Conference Second Round.

Game four is Sunday in Edmonton.
