The New York Islanders weren't going to go out without a fight. And they may not be going out at all if they can keep up the momentum they established Friday night.
Facing a 2-0 deficit heading into Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Final, New York bounced back with a 5-3 win to cut into the Tampa Bay Lightning's series lead. The Islanders will now look to even the series in Sunday's Game 4.
New York's win also guaranteed that neither conference final series will be a sweep. In the Western Conference, the Dallas Stars have a 2-1 lead over the Vegas Golden Knights after they notched a 3-2 overtime victory in Thursday's Game 3.
