The Islanders will have a chance to close out a playoff series at Nassau Coliseum for the first time since 1993 in Game 6 Wednesday night. Josh Bailey‘s goal in double overtime on Monday gave New York a 3-2 win over the Penguins and moved them to within a win of advancing to the Second Round.
It will be even louder in the Coliseum for Game 6 with an increased capacity of around 9,000 fans in the building. The Penguins will be looking to silence that crowd and be more effective with their chances after outshooting the Islanders 41-20 on Monday.
The most important shot of the game was from Bailey, who took advantage of a Tristan Jarry miscue to put home the winner.
Pittsburgh has trailed for just 31 seconds in the series and now face the prospect of winning their next two games or suffer a disappointing end to a strong season.
“The result was not what we wanted,” said Kris Letang. “But I think we made a statement. That’s the way we need to play going into their arena. I’m pretty confident that if we play the same way, we’ll get the result.”
