The New York Islanders have done a good job of keeping Florida’s top line of Aleksander Barkov, Jaromir Jagr and Jonathan Huberdeau off the scoresheet, but it’s the Panthers’ second line that’s given them fits.
On Sunday, it didn’t take one of them very long to find the back of the net. Smith gave the Panthers a 1-0 lead just 2:25 into the game. The 25-year-old already has four goals and six points in just over two playoff games in 2016.
The Panthers have a 1-0 lead at the first intermission.
