TORONTO — Gotta love the back-to-backs. No seriously, the Islanders are loving this.

Playing on consecutive days or nights is much-maligned during an NHL regular season. Hustle out of one rink, bus to the airport, a charter to another city, jump into bed and be ready to go in way less than 24-hours. In this case, it’s joy-joy.

The Islanders took at 2-0 Qualifying Series lead against the Florida Panthers with a 4-2 win Tuesday afternoon and they get to strap ‘em on again for a noon start Wednesday. No sweat. Win, very few media responsibilities, change clothes, walk through a tunnel to your hotel and settle in for a night of hockey watching or card playing.
