When the Islanders and Florida Panthers finally get going on Saturday afternoon it will be just the second time in either franchises’ history that they’ll face one another in the postseason. However, that doesn’t mean that there haven’t been some memorable moments between the two clubs.
Every Islanders fan remembers the Game 6 victory that propelled the Islanders to their first playoff series win in 23 years. Yet there are plenty of other moments involving both teams that are worth noting. Before they make more memories beginning on Saturday, let’s look back at a few of those standout moments between the Islanders and Florida Panthers.

Long-time radio voice of the Islanders Barry Landers MCed the event, with Al Arbour and Bill Torrey on hand as well.
