Overtime Goal Blows Roof Off of “The Barn”
Game 6 overtime against the Lightning had a bad memory attached. Tampa Bay’s Anthony Cerrelli eliminated the Isles in the same game last year...That was in The Bubble. This one was in The Barn. Anthony Bouvillier of the Islanders made short order of overtime, scoring just 68 seconds into the extra period. Somehow, in the excitement, Islander fans thought sending beer cans flying onto the ice was OK. It’s not but I understand the situation and I think the Islander players did too.

However, late in the first period, Islander center Matt Barzal scored the first of 3 New York power play goals on the evening. Kyle Palmeri and Jordan Eberle had the other two PPG’s but the goal scoring has not been the story of this series. The tale of this series has been the physical play. It hasn’t been a dirty series but it is an old time checking dust up to say the least.
