Wednesday game

Game 2: No. 2 Tampa Bay Lightning vs. No. 7 New York Islanders (TB leads 1-0) | 8 pm

“The road isn’t always the same. It’s structured with all these twists and turns,” Islanders coach Barry Trotz said. The message to New York after the 8–2 defeat in Game 1 was that the Lightning seemed to score practically every chance they had, which is not sustainable; Analytics said the game was closer than 5-on-5, and they indicate the Islanders actually had an advantage in possession and scoring attempts in the first and third periods. Trotz said Islanders investigated what went wrong, but most importantly, a mental break was taken on Tuesday.

Question of the day: How will the islanders answer that game 1?

The Lightning looked incredible in the process of defeating the Islanders in Game 1. This is the first time New York has restarted the series, and they have lost three of their last four playoff games.

“It was a strange game,” said Trotz. “We’re just reassembling a little bit. You try to catch up. You play a Game 7, you fly, you come back, you’re trying to get ready for another team, a The Tumta team are trying to muster energy to play very well. ”

Matthew Barzal of the Islanders said he liked his team’s attitude after their defeat in Game 1, because “we didn’t find it acceptable.”

Lightning defenseman Kevin Schtenkirk predicted that Tampa would face a different Islanders team in Game 2. “They get a day to reset, probably clean their heads, and some of those games make it easier to brush your shoulders when you lose by a big margin.” Like that, “he said.” So we’re definitely going to be ready for a much better team. We know what kind of style they play and obviously the kind of energy they can bring. We are happy with the game and the win, but we are definitely happy. It doesn’t feel like we’ve accomplished anything yet. “

Anton Khudobin allowed three goals on 27 shots for Dallas and was drawn after two periods, as star coach Rick Bones hoped it would knock out his team. “Anton was the only reason it was 3-0. Without Anton, it’s 6-0 after the second period,” he said. Full repetition.
