TAMPA, Fla. -- The NHL schedule provides opportunities for quick revenge sometimes, and nine days after the Tampa Bay Lightning handed the New York Islanders a 6-1 loss on their home ice, the two teams square off again at Amalie Arena on Thursday.The Islanders (5-6-2) ended a three-game losing streak with a 4-2 win Monday against Vancouver -- the Canucks ninth straight loss -- while the Lightning hope to bounce back from a 3-1 loss at Florida on Tuesday that left them with a 7-5-1 record.Tampa Bay eliminated the Islanders in five games in last years conference semifinals, averaging 3.6 goals per game and winning four straight after losing Game 1. Their offense was on display in last weeks rematch, with left wing Nikita Kucherov scoring two goals with two assists as the Lightning tagged goalies Jaroslav Halak and Thomas Greiss for three goals each.Special teams has been a big part of the Lightnings early success -- Tampa Bay ranks fifth in the NHL on power play, with a 25 percent (13/52) success rate, and theyre seventh in the league on penalty kill, holding opponents scoreless 88 percent of the time.Our penalty kill has been pretty good the last couple of years.
