The Islanders head home to Nassau Coliseum following an overtime win Game 2 that split the series with the Bruins.
It was almost a 2-0 series in Boston’s favor. The Bruins clawed back from a 3-1 third period deficit to force overtime. But in the extra sessions Casey Cizikas took advantage of a bounce and scored on a breakaway.
“You’re just trying to do the right things in overtime, be in the right spots,” said Cizikas. “I was lucky, the puck popped into the middle there and gave me an opportunity.”
Nassau Coliseum will be even louder as an expected crowd of 12,000 fans should be in the building for Games 3 and 4.
After suffering a lower-body injury, Bruins forward Craig Smith will be back in the lineup for Game 2.
