The Islanders will be able to punch their ticket to the First Round of the actual Stanley Cup playoffs if they are able to win this afternoon’s game against the Panthers in Toronto.
Despite it being a back-to-back scenario, Semyon Varlamov will man the pipes for New York.

I’d imagine Sergei Bobrovsky will oppose him at the other end.
Johnny Boychuk is out again today. He will be missing his second straight game after the head shot he took from Mike Matheson in Game 1.
No surprise but Johnny Boychuk confirmed out again for Game 3 for #Isles— Andrew Gross (@AGrossNewsday) August 5, 2020
