The New York Islanders travel to Pittsburgh for Game 5. The series is tied 2-2. That makes this a best-of-three now. It's all too much to digest.

From Empty Netters:

Game 5s are traditionally the most important game of the series but this one seems more important than normal for the Penguins. They've benched Marc-Andre Fleury for Tomas Vokoun. They appear to be scratching Mark Eaton, Tanner Glass and Jussi Jokinen for Simon Despres, Tyler Kennedy and the great Joe Vitale. THere will be a Game 6 regardless of who wins tonight but the Penguins have been outplayed most of the previous three games. They need to sway things back to their direction.

This is your game thread. I hope you survive.
