The 5 Hole: Bolted out of Barclays


It was a playoff rematch Tuesday night as the Islanders took on the Tampa Bay Lightning for the first time since being eliminated in the playoffs by them last May. These two teams will play each other three times in the next 14 days, and with the way that six game series ended, you can say tonight had the feel of a revenge game from the home side. This matchup was also the first for the Isles on national TV this season which only added another element to the mix. On to the game, where the Isles were struck early and often in a 6-1 defeat. They will look to rebound Thursday when they welcome the Flyers to Brooklyn. Recap below:
