The New York Islanders did not play their best game Monday night. Not even close, in fact.
But thanks to the heroics of Ilya Sorokin and Josh Bailey they skated to a 3-2 double OT win over the Pittsburgh Penguins in Game 5 of their first-round playoff series.
With one more win, the Islanders would move on to the second round of the postseason for the third straight season.
Let’s take a look at the finer points from this lengthy thriller.
