Islanders fail to win consecutive playoff games again

New York is 0-12 following postseason victory since 2002

by John Kreiser @jkreiser7713 / NHL.com Managing Editor

NEW YORK -- The New York Islanders still can't find a way to win back-to-back games in the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

That might sound odd for a team whose playoff record of 19 consecutive series victories is one that might never be broken. But that mark was set by a team that won four straight Stanley Cups in the 1980s; the current Islanders haven't found a way to win consecutive playoff games since 2002.

NEW YORK -- Thirty-five Stanley Cup Playoff games have come and gone since Florida Panthers forward Jaromir Jagr has scored a goal.

He couldn't care less.

That was his attitude after he set up Teddy Purcell's power-play goal in the second period for his 200th career postseason point in the Panthers' 2-1 win against the New York Islanders in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference First Round at Barclays Center on Wednesday.

Situation Room: Huberdeau's shot stands as no goal

R1, Gm4: After a coach's challenge, it is determined that Jonathan Huberdeau's shot stands as a no goal midway through the 2nd period

  • 01:22 •

At 10:45 of the second period in the Panthers/Islanders game, the Situation Room initiated a video review to further examine a play at the New York net. The referee informed the Situation Room that Islanders goaltender Thomas Greiss made the initial save before Florida forward Jonathan Huberdeau pushed him across the goal line together with the puck. According to Rule 69.7, "In the event that a goalkeeper has been pushed into the net together with the puck by an attacking player after making a stop, the goal will be disallowed." This is not a reviewable play therefore the referee's call on the ice stands - no penalty and no goal Florida.
