Welcome to, the official site of the National Hockey LeagueBienvenue à , le site officiel de la Ligue nationale de hockeyДобро пожаловать на, официальный сайт Национальной хоккейной лигиTervetuloa NHL:n viralliselle nettisivustolle NHL.comiinVälkommen till, NHL:s officiella web-sidaVítejte na, oficiálních stránkách National Hockey LeagueVitajte na, oficiálnych stránkach National Hockey LeagueWillkommen auf, der offiziellen Seite der National Hockey LeagueBienvenido a, el sitio oficial de la National Hockey LeagueIslanders at Lightning3 p.m. ET; NBC, CBC, SN, TVASStanley Cup Semifinals, Game 1The New York Islanders and Tampa Bay Lightning will play Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Semifinals at Amalie Arena in Tampa, Florida, on Sunday.The Islanders and Lightning are playing each other in the third round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs for the second straight season. Tampa Bay eliminated New York in the Eastern Conference Final in six games last season before defeating the Dallas Stars in the Stanley Cup Final.New York has 17 players expected to be in the lineup for Game 1 who played in the series against the Lightning last season. We're not going to beat ourselves."Teams that win Game 1 are 497-226 (68.7 percent) winning a best-of-7 series, including 8-4 this season.Here are 3 keys for Game 1:The Islanders were the least penalized team in the NHL in the regular season (153 penalties taken) and that discipline has carried into the playoffs. … I think we're more comfortable playing those tighter games and that's what it's going to be."Each team has relied on its bottom six forwards to chip in offensively, and getting contributions from them could be the difference in Game 1.It was for Tampa Bay in Game 1 against Carolina, when third-line forward Barclay Goodrow's goal in the third period was the difference in a 2-1 win, and in Games 4 and 5, when the fourth line scored in each win.The Islanders' leading goal-scorer in the playoffs is forward Kyle Palmieri with seven.
