The Eastern Conference Final is within reach. The Islanders have three cracks against the Flyers at getting there. All they have to do is win one of them. And history is on their side.

But it would be greatly appreciated and preferred if they just clinched their berth tonight and took any of the drama out of it. Thanks to them in advance.
The Islanders are rolling with the same lineup tonight. And the teams are returning to their main guys in net.

They’re back in the white jerseys tonight, being the “road” team and all. They bring good luck, though.
