Tampa Bay Lightning vs. New York Islanders FREE LIVE STREAM (9/15/20): How to watch NHL playoffs, time, channel
The Tampa Bay Lightning have been one of the stronger teams in the NHL over the past several years.
They’ve got a pair of division championships since the start of the 2017-18 season, a President’s Trophy for the 2018-19 campaign and a Stanley Cup Finals appearance back in 2014-15.
Now, leading the Eastern Conference finals, the Lightning are again in a position to move one step closer to a second Stanley Cup Trophy as all they have to do is win one more game to beat the Islanders and advance to the Stanley Cup Finals.
The Islanders have seen a team come back from a 3-1 deficit, however. New York led its series against the Philadelphia Flyers 3-1 before Philadelphia rattled off two straight wins to even the series up at three games and force a decisive Game 7. The Islanders still were able to keep Philadelphia from completing its comeback.
This series has been something different for New York, however. The underdogs have impressed at every stop along the way to reaching the conference finals, dominating the Florida Panthers and Washington Capitals before moving past the top-seeded Flyers.
The Islanders have struggled to get the better of Tampa Bay. The Lightning have outscored them 17-9 in this series with two wins coming by three goals or more. New York has scored more than two goals just once in this series, coming in the 5-3 win on Friday.
