NHL: New York Islanders at Tampa Bay Lightning
Holy jumpin’
Jonathan Dyer-USA TODAY Sports

Last night’s win in Tampa was surprising and exhilarating. But there’s no time for the Islanders to soak it in. They’re in Raleigh this evening for their second game against the Hurricanes this week. They were in Buffalo last night, where they beat the Sabres 3-1.

FIG picks go here. Game time is 5 pm.
