The Skinny: Isles 6, Boston 2

"The Skinny"  

By Eric Hornick

Second Round Game 6
Isles 6, Boston 2
Isles win Best-of-7 series, 4-2
Brock Nelson scored two second period goals, including the game-winner as the Isles eliminated the Boston Bruins in six games with a 6-2 victory before a sellout crowd of 12,000 at Nassau Coliseum. 

The Isles scored three times in a period for the fourth time in this series as they built a 4-1 lead through two periods.  Brad Marchand's second power play goal cut the lead to 4-2 in the third period, but the Isles held Boston without a shot for the next 13 minutes and later got a pair of empty-net goals to seal the series.

The Isles will face Tampa Bay in the semi-finals; it will be the second straight match-up of the teams in the Final 4.  The Lightning won the series last summer in six games.

The Skinny 
The Isles are 2-2 in game 5's under Barry Trotz… The Isles have played 42 playoff games under Barry Trotz; only Boston (48) has played more in that span…The home team outscored the visitors 13-2 in the third period in this series (Boston 8, Isles 7).  Boston outscored their opponents 14-10 in the third period… The Isles have outscored opponents 18-8 in the second period (including 11-3 in this series)… Semyon Varlamov made 40 saves to earn his 27th career playoff win… Kyle Palmieri extended his point streak to five games; Palmieri now has seven goals in his first 12 Islander playoff games after scoring twice for the Isles in 17 regular season appearances.  Palmieri is now tied-4th in goal-scoring in this year's playoffs… The Isles had come-from-behind to record their prior five wins (2 vs Pittsburgh and 3 vs. Boston); they have yet to lead after one period in this year's playoffs but are 7-1 when tied through 20 minutes… The Isles scored six goals for the first time since Game 4 vs. Pittsburgh in 2013; they are 33-1 all-time in the playoffs when scoring at least six goals…Over the last two years, only Andrei Vasilevskiy (26) has won more playoff games than Semyon Varlamov (15)…Travis Zajac is the oldest forward to score a playoff goal for the Isles since Ed Westfall did so as a 38-year-old… The Isles are now 13-1 in 14 series they have taken a 3-2 lead.  They are 12-2 in game 6's with a series lead (losing only to Toronto in 1978 and to Philadelphia in the Bubble).  The Isles are 8-0 at the Coliseum in potential- clinching game 6's…The Bruins are 4-22 in game 6's when trailing three games to two…Brad Marchand tied Brayden Point for the Stanley Cup lead in power play goals (5)… Scott Mayfield now leads all NHL players  with a +12 rating; J-G Pageau is second in the NHL with a +11.  Both players were +4 in this game….Pageau is now 4th in the league with his 10 assists and is tied for 3rd with his 13 points…Pageau, Palmieri and Mathew Barzal shared the team lead with six points in this series; 10 players had at least three points in the six games as the Isles tallied 22 times.  Boston's Perfection Line combined for 23 points and David Krejci and Charlie McAvoy each added seven points, but no other Bruins had more than 2…For the third time in this year's playoffs (Nelson -twice and Clutterbuck) an Islander scored twice in a period; that had only happened three times between 1994 and 2020..Noah Dobson has four assists in the last three games…The Isles lead the playoffs with 43 goals and are 2nd in Colorado in goals per game (3.58 to 3.89); the other four teams remaining in the playoffs all have a lower goals against per game average that the Isles' 2.75…The Isles scored four empty-net goals in this series (two in game 4 and two in game 6).

First Time in a Long Time
The Isles have clinched consecutive series on home for the first time since 1984, when they closed out their 17th, 18th and 19th straight series wins at home.
The Isles scored three goals in a period for the 4th time in this series; it is the first time since 1983 (Conference Final, also vs. Boston) that they scored three goals in a period in four different games in a series.
Brock Nelson is the first Islander in the Post-Cup era to record nine goals in potential clinching games.  (Bossy 23 – Bourne/Gillies 11 – Tonelli/Goring 10).

First Time for Everything   
The Isles scored empty-net goals 11 seconds apart, setting a club record for the fastest two goals. The previous record of 13 seconds was set in 1984 (Tomas Jonsson and Greg Gilbert) and tied in Game 6 vs. Pittsburgh (Brock Nelson and Ryan Pulock) two weeks ago
Pulock is the first player in Stanley Cup history to score two goals within 13 seconds of a teammate's goal.
Brock Nelson is the first player whose career has been played only in the 21st Century to play at least ten potential clinching games and average at least .75 goals/game (9 goals in 12 games).  The Isles are 7-5 in those games.  It is the highest average of any Islander in that circumstance.
The Isles have allowed 452 shots through twelve games- it is the most shots they have allowed in the first twelve games of any playoff run in their history.

Anthony Beauvillier 14
Jordan Eberle 12
J-G Pageau 11
John Tavares 11

Bailey also has 48 playoff points for the Islanders, more than any Isles in the 2000s:
Josh Bailey 48
Brock Nelson 39
Mathew Barzal 33

Hometown Hero
Kyle Palmieri has seven goals in 12 games this spring, matching Anthony Beauvillier's total through 12 games last summer.  Only three Isles have scored more goals in the first 12 games of a playoff year (Ray Ferraro (12 in 1993), Mike Bossy (11 in 1981), and Bryan Trottier (9 in 1981 and 8 in 1982). Palmieri's 7 goals are tied for fourth in this year's playoffs.

Young Mr. Dobson
Noah Dobson is the second defenseman in Isles history to record at least seven playoff assists before his 22nd birthday.  You may remember the other: Denis Potvin had nine assists in 17 games in 1975. 

First Time in a Long Time!
This was the third all-time playoff meeting between the teams:
1980- Quarter-Finals. Isles won series 4 games to 1.
1983- Conference Finals. Isles won series 4 games to 2.
2021- 2nd Round. Isles won series 4 games to 2.

Barry and Al
Barry Trotz is only the 2nd coach to lead the Isles to multiple series wins, joining Al Arbour.  Terry Simpson and Jack Capuano are the only other coaches to lead the Isles to a playoff series victory.  Trotz has won a playoff series in seven consecutive years (four with Washington and three with the Isles).  Arbour did that from 1979-1985 (all with Isles) – no one had done it since, until Trotz came along.

Lou and Bill
Lou Lamoriello's win vs. Boston was his 31st playoff series win as a General Manager, which is second all-time to Glen Sather (41).  Bill Torrey is third with 28 playoff series wins.

UP NEXT
SEMI-FINALS vs TAMPA BAY
[NBCSN, WRHU 88.7 FM, WRCN 103.9FM, ESPN 98.7FM; Pre-Game and Post-Game coverage on MSG+]
The NHL has not yet released the schedule for the semi-finals, which will begin in Tampa Bay.

This will be the fourth time that the teams have met in post-season; the Lightning gave won the first three series (2004 in 5 games, 2016 in 5 games, 2020 in 6 games).  Five of the games have gone to overtime, including the final two games in The Bubble, with the only Islander win coming on the Jordan Eberle goal in Game 5.

It is only the second time in the last 20 years that two teams have met in consecutive years in the final four- Chicago and Los Angeles did so in 2013 and 2014; they split those series and both teams went on to win the Stanley Cup.

This is the first time the Isles have advanced to the Semi-Finals/Conference Final in consecutive years since doing so in six straight years from 1979 to 1984.

AND FINALLY…
You are reading the 750th consecutive edition of The Skinny.  The Isles made it a very, very happy edition!
