Update: Calgary bounced back on Monday evening to cut the series lead to 2-1 with a 4-2 win over Medicine Hat. Figren gave the Hitmen a 2-0 lead with his third goal of the playoffs, and was named the game's First Star.

"It's the time of year when you've got to shine," said Figren, following the game. "I'm working like everyone else and I really want this. All the guys are working so hard. It feels really good."

The Hitmen will look to even the series Wednesday night in Calgary.

"So far in the whole playoffs, Robin has worked extremely hard and has been rewarded with a few key playoff goals," said Islanders assistant GM Ryan Jankowski.  "He is an up-tempo energetic player and is a key part of the Calgary Hitmen depth that has gotten them this far in the playoffs."
