New York Islanders Penalty Kill Needs To Step Up (Keys To Game)

In wins over the Sharks and Islanders, the Bolts have outscored their opponents 11-4 in their two games since returning from the road.

ABOUT THE ISLANDERS (16-8-2): Josh Bailey notched an assist in Monday's victory and leads the team with 31 points, including 13 in his last nine games, and Tavares is just one behind his linemate.

When the Tampa Bay Lightning needed to regain the momentum, Yanni Gourde took over.

Going up against the third-best offensive force in the league and top-ranked power play in the Tampa Bay Lightning, the Islanders are going to have to be better. Thomas Greiss stopped 28 shots. He then registered the primary assist on Jordan Eberle's goal.

"We weren't very good for a majority of the game", said star center John Tavares, who had an assist. Eberle tied it 2-all just 1:51 later. He's up to seven goals and 26 points in 27 games this season.

Nikita Kucherov moved onto the line with center Brayden Point and Ondrej Palat and tallied twice while Tyler Johnson was switched from third-line center to right wing with captain Steven Stamkos and Vladislav Namestnikov and scored a pair of goals.

The Islanders went 11 minutes without a shot to start the first and were outshot 11-2 overall in the period. The old mark was 30 games in 2014-15.

Greiss finished with 28 saves and Tavares had an assist for NY, which fell to 1-1-0 on its ongoing four-game road trip, which continues at defending two-time Stanley Cup champion Pittsburgh on Thursday night.

Lightning: Host the Colorado Avalanche on Thursday night in the third of four consecutive home games.
