Tampa Bay had a week off before the 2020 Eastern Conference Finals. Watching the New York Islanders defeat the Philadelphia Flyers on game 7 was a real treat for me as a fan. Tampa Bay had an entire week to prepare for either a worn down Flyers team or a worn down Islanders team.
Tampa Bay won this game 8-2 without their team captain Steven Stamkos. Brayden Point had 2 goals, 3 assists, and 5 points. Point was phenonemnal in game 1 of the 2020 Eastern Conference Finals.
Even though the Islanders are my favorite team, it would not surprise me one bit if the Lightning swept the Islanders. Game 2 of the 2020 Eastern Conference Finals takes place on Wednesday Night at 8 PM EST on NBCSN.
