Game 4 Preview


Florida Panthers @ New York Islanders

Wednesday April 20, 2016

Game 4      (NYI leads 2-1)

 

The Islanders are hoping to win back to back playoff games for the first time since 2002. The Cats have scored the first goal in all three games. The lines should be the same. This is a key game for the Cats. Check out the keys to the game on the Game 4 Keys article published here. Luongo should start. Derek MacKenzie missed the morning skate . Reilly Smith is red hot as well as Nick Bjugstad. John Tavares is hot on the opposite side. The Cats will HAVE TO SHUT HIM DOWN! HOW MANY TIMES DO I HAVE TO SAY IT! He has 2 goals, 4 assists and 6 points in the 3 games we’ve played. It should be 2 points and no goals. Please shut down Tavares. Jagr has not scored a playoff goal in 34 consecutive Stanley Cup Playoff Games. Trocheck will be back in the near future. Here are the lines:
