2020 NHL Playoffs Today: How far can the New York Islanders push the Tampa Bay Lightning?

The Dallas Stars are in the Stanley Cup Final for the first time in 20 years ... and they'll have to wait a little bit longer to find out who they are playing.

The New York Islanders kept their season alive by besting the Tampa Bay Lightning in a double-overtime Game 5. I wish I could say this game was a thriller, but it felt more like filler content, especially as the third period and overtime ticked along.

But the Eastern Conference finals will continue on for at least another game, and there's nothing wrong with that.
