Five fixes the Islanders need to make for Game 2 after opening debacle

Five fixes the Islanders need to make for Game 2 after opening debacle

We won't dissect too much that went wrong in the 8-2 loss on Monday because, if the Islanders repeat even half their mistakes from the Eastern Conference final opener, they'll be exiting the bubble by this time next week.

The New York Islanders locked down the sixth seed in the conference after taking down the Florida Panthers in four games in the qualifying round.

The Lightning defeated the Isles, 8-2, asserting their dominance to kick off the series.

In the first period, New York's Jordan Eberie put the Islanders on the board with a powerplay goal.

Point produced two goals and three assists, while Kucherov collected a goal and four helpers.

Brock Nelson leads the Islanders with 26 goals and has 54 points.

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. Six different Lightning players managed to tack on a goal in the Lightning's Game One victory.

A little over 13 minutes into the second period, Point scored his second goal of the game.

The Lightning are 28-12-3 against Eastern Conference opponents.

INJURIES: Lightning: Steven Stamkos: out (lower body). Anders Lee has four goals and two assists over the last 10 games for NY.

Tampa Bay returns to the ice against the Islanders on Wednesday night at 8 p.m. for Game Two play.
