The Islanders were unable to seize control of their second-round Stanley Cup playoff series Saturday, as a barrage of Tampa Bay offense evened things at one game apiece in a 4-1 decision.
Early goals by Tyler Johnson and Jonathan Drouinput New York in an early hole, and NikolayKuleman's first period power play strike wasn't enough to close the gap.
More goals in later frames, from Victor Hedman and Johnson again put things out of reach in Tampa, site of the Islanders' Game 1 victory earlier in the series.
Lightning goalie Ben Biship was just good enough, stopping 19 Islanders shots while Thomas Greiss' 27 saves on 30 shots were wasted in the loss.
Things start up again after two days off at Barclays Center Tuesday night at 7 p.m. on NBCSN.
