Sept. 5, 2020 - The Islanders advance to the Eastern Conference Final for the first time since 1993, as they defeat the Philadelphia Flyers 4-0 in Game 7 of the Second Round. 

The Islanders' methodical shutout victory featured scoring from Scott Mayfield, Andy Greene, Brock Nelson and Anthony Beauvillier. Former Islanders goaltender Thomas Greiss posted a perfect 16-save perfromance in the shutout, in what was a defensive clinic by the Islanders. The 16 shots against were the fewest they'd allowed in the playoffs.

"We didn't get small by the moment, we got big by the moment," Head Coach Barry Trotz said after the win. "It was a big moment Game 7 and we got big."
