Game 6. Another do-or-die. The Islanders just need to win.
The opponents put up a brave face, the face of a very good team with a 3-2 series lead, saying “we’re comfortable with how we played,” etc. (and they should be), but the Islanders can continue chipping away at that comfort.
That’s all they can do. Maybe by the end we have a Game 7 to decide it all. And if not, we’ve had one hell of a ride.
Lineup changes? Possibly, possibly catastrophic. Adam Pelech not in warmups?!

And maybe the Lightning get Brayden Point back? Ugh.

With game 6 tonight an #Isles home game one could only imagine the noise level at the Coliseum- here’s what it sounded like before the first game back - 3 years ago today. pic.twitter.com/tq4BGac5OB— Eric Hornick (@ehornick) September 17, 2020
