The Tampa Bay Lightning’s offense proved to be too much for the Long Island Islanders in a 4-1 win at home on Monday night.
The 1-0 lead was quickly diminished as the Islanders (8-3-3) scored within a minute on a goal by Mathieu Joseph off an assist from Alex Killorn. Assists by Ondrej Palat and Victor Hedman gave way to a goal by Anthony Cirelli with less than one minute left in the first period.
Following a three-goal first period, each team had a clean sheet heading into the final period of the game, with the Islanders up one.
The last seed in the Metropolitan Division Islanders look to snap a three-game losing streak on Tuesday against the Atlantic Division-leading Florida Panthers, as the Lightning take on the Philadelphia Flyers on Thursday night.
