Game 3 Islanders Panthers

There will be at least one more game in the Islanders Qualifying Round series with the Florida Panthers. The Islanders couldn’t’ complete the sweep on Wednesday in a 3-2 loss in Game 3.

It was a more uncharacteristic performance from the Islanders, who made several mental mistakes that cost them in the end. They did hold Florida to 22 shots, but gave them five chances on the man-advantage and went 0-for-3 on the power play themselves.
