The New York Islanders and the Florida Panthers resume battle in the NHL Playoffs in game 4 of their series on Apr. 20, with lots to play for. The Islanders are leading the series 2-1 and are in prime position to make the Stanley Cup Final. However, there’s a long way to go in this one, and those Panthers won’t give this one up with an almighty fight, and hopefully a mass brawl on the ice. Click down to watch the live stream!
So far, there hasn’t been too much to separate these compelling teams. In game one, the Islanders sneaked a 5-4 win, while game 2 was the biggest margin of victory between the two — with the Panthers romping to a 3-1 win. However, game 3 did show that this series is likely to go to the wire, with the Islanders scoring a 4-3 overtime win.
The Islanders will be relying upon their top line of John Tavares, Kyle Okposo and Frans Nielsen for scoring their goals. Goaltender and former All-Star Roberto Luongo will be charged with keeping them out, and he’ll have to make as many as the 41 saves he managed in the Panthers’ 3-1 win.
Maybe we might get a repeat record-breaking shootout, just like in Nov. 27 when the Panthers went 5 for 5 in the shootout against the Islanders to win 3-2. It was the first time 9 straight goals were scored in a shootout since it was introduced way back in the 2005-2006 season.
It promises to be another bruising encounter between these two, with both sides desperate to make it through to the next round. It’ll be tight, but perhaps the home team may just edge it!
