R1, Gm5: Aleksander Barkov is awarded a penalty shot in overtime, but Thomas Greiss comes up with a nice save to keep the Islanders in the game

  • 00:41 •

New York Islanders goalie Thomas Greiss made a save on an overtime penalty shot by Aleksander Barkov to keep the Florida Panthers from winning Game 5 of the Eastern Conference First Round on Friday.

Islanders defenseman Calvin de Haan was called for closing his hand on the puck in the crease 7:19 into overtime. Barkov was chosen to take the penalty shot, but his attempt was denied by Greiss, who stopped the backhand with his left-hand glove.

It was the third overtime penalty shot in Stanley Cup Playoff history (Joe Juneau, Washington Capitals vs. Ken Wreggett, Pittsburgh Penguins, April 24, 1996; Aleksey Morozov, Pittsburgh Penguins vs. Andy Moog, Montreal Canadiens, April 23, 1998). None of the three shooters scored.

The game remained tied 1-1. The best-of-7 series is tied 2-2.
