No matter how the third match of this confrontation ends, the fourth game will be unpredictable in terms of its winner. If the "Isles" break out in the series, the "pilots" can gather their will into a fist and regain balance, as it was already a couple of days ago. And if Philadelphia leads 2-1, then New Yorkers will simply have to show their maximum so as not to be on the edge of the abyss.
True, there was a very unusual super-activity of the Islanders in the first period (shots on target 15:4 in its favor) and Philadelphia were very lucky that Hart pulled a lot, otherwise everything ended much worse than in the first 20 minutes.
In the second period, the situation has changed dramatically. Shots on target at 7:15 in favor of the pilots, but Varlamov defended perfectly within the Islanders goal. In the first half of the third period, the Islanders succeeded in 2 more sharp counterattacks.Philadelphia, hoping to save the match, changed the goalkeeper on the sixth field already in the 52-nd minute, but immediately got the puck into the “empty net” - 4:0 and "Pilots" calm down.
In the second period there was an even play on the court. Philadelphia relieved the pressure, considering that the game was done. In the middle of the period, "Islanders" showed the "pilots" the class for the implementation of the majority, reducing the score to 3:1.
But in the 3-rd period, the story of the 1-st period of the first match was repeated. The Islanders transformed, inflated them to the maximum ceiling and practically squeezed Philadelphia in its zone. 8:15 am on shots on target in favor of the Islanders and, as a result, 2 more goals scored against the flyers and 3:3 in regulation time. True, in the end, victory went to “Philadelphia”. Already in the 3-rd minute of the over, Myers printed Varlamov, who had previously reflected 52 shots on target from the side.
