Islanders Steamroll Over Panthers To Move On To First Round

Anthony Beauvillier

That $10 million contract for Bobrovsky is looking real good for Florida, right? The New York Islanders handled Florida all series long and got the ultimate result. They win game four by a score of 5-1. They have now moved on to the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. New York will play either the second or third seed. It all depends on what happens in the Montreal and Pittsburgh series. The Islanders got their goals from Anthony Beauvillier (two), Brock Nelson, Mathew Barzal, and Jean-Gabriel Pageau. Florida gets their lone goal by Mike Hoffman.

Florida seemed to be a step-behind New York all series long and it came back to bite them in the behind. Bobrovsky did not look good at all in this series. This could be said for his regular season as well. Congratulations to the Islanders with a hell of a series and welcome to round one of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Don’t sleep on this Isles team. They can make some noise with a solid option in the net with Varlamov.
