Panthers game 3 islanders

The way the Florida Panthers played on Wednesday in their season-saving victory over the Islanders in Game 3 will need to continue for this series to continue.

The Panthers made only a handful of mistakes in what, ultimately, was a clean 3-2 victory in which they played (successfully) with the lead for 19-plus minutes of the third period.

Although the Panthers short-circuited two power play chances as Brett Connolly and Sasha Barkov negated them with penalties of their own, Florida’s special team units were solid Wednesday and, like Tuesday going the other way, turned the tide.

The Islanders had three power play chances Wednesday, a sharp decline from the seven they enjoyed in Tuesday’s 4-2 Game 2 victory.

While with the man advantage, the Islanders did not send a single shot that got through to Sergei Bobrovsky.

Florida’s entire game could be capsulated in a couple of shifts taken by Erik Haula.
