The New York Islanders earned the franchise's first home playoff win since 2002 on Tuesday night. Pittsburgh goalie Marc-Andre Fleury, who tied the Penguins record for postseason shutouts (six) in Game 1, is suddenly on the hot seat after surrendering several questionable goals in a 6-4 defeat.
New York evened up the best-of-seven Eastern Conference series at Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum. Regular-season MVP candidate John Tavares tallied a pair of goals, including the game-winner, in an action-packed victory.
The Islanders, winless in postseason series since 1993, have suddenly found a way to rattle Fleury. New York scored six goals on 24 shot attempts, accumulating 14 goals in the past three games.
Final: New York 6, Pittsburgh 4
