On the NHL Stanley Cup Playoff podcast with Joe Lami:

#1 Joe does the huge win by the Tampa Bay Lightning 8-2 over the New York Islanders pretty much establish what this series is going to be about.

#2 Are the Islanders a team that could come back  and make this series interesting?  They do have Matthew Barzal, Anders Lee, and Andy Greene to name a few who helped get them here.

#3 The Lightning no doubt not only had the offense to score eight on Monday but they also have a goaltender who held the Isles to just two goals in game 1 in Andrei Vasilevskiy who stopped 22 of 24 shots.

#4 Joe talk about the Bolts Brayden Point and Nikita Kucherov who each had five points on Monday against the Islanders they were key to the eight goal offense

#5 So it’s back to the drawing board for the Islanders do you think after a game like that on Monday they can regroup or will they have that concern this Lightning team is too well prepared and difficult to contain in game 2 on Wednesday?
