Game 4: @FlaPanthers 2-@NYIslanders 1 to tie series. Purcell, Petrovic goals, Jagr assist is 200th career playoff point

BROOKLYN–The Florida Panthers and New York Islanders have split the first four games of their opening playoff round series, creating a best of three situation with Florida holding the home-ice advantage after a 2-1 victory over the New York Islanders Wednesday night at Barclays Center.

The Panthers host the Islanders in Game 5 of the series Friday night at BB&T Center. Game 6 will be back in Brooklyn and Game 7, if necessary, will be at BB&T Center.

Teddy Purcell scored his second goal of the playoffs as the Panthers converted on a power play to take a 1-0 lead. Working from behind the net, Jaromir Jagr found Turcell who snapped off a quick shot past Islanders goalie Thomas Greiss. The assist enabled Jagr to claim ninth place among assist leaders with his 122nd assist and 200th career playoff point, a total surpassed by only four others.

John Tavares of the Islanders evened the score in the final minute of the middle period with a power play goal.

Alex Petrovic scored the winning goal midway in the third period and Roberto Luongo stopped 26 of 27 shots in collecting the victory. Highlights of the game from NHL.com can be seen here.

Some Jagr-related  social media accounts:

@68Jagr  This is the real site,  the one and only official Jaromir Jagr twitter account. Postings are rare, but worth the wait. Jagr has been more active on Twitter this season.

The two best Jagr facebook pages are:

https://www.facebook.com/68Jagr/?fref=ts

 This is the page Jagr posts on, if he is going to post at all.

Another good facebook page is one produced by someone in the Czech Republic. It has more than 100,000 likes. This is not the official page, but it is very good.

@68isgr8  is the twitter for The Traveling Jagrs. Clad in different Jagr jerseys and hair styles from 68’s career, they gained league-wide recognition when they caught Jagr’s attention during a pre-game skate of a Dallas Stars game in Canada during the 2012-2013 season. Since then, they convene at games in Western Canada and make a road trip or two every year, playing street hockey with locals, posing for hundreds of pictures, and having a good time with fans while honoring an all-time NHL legend.
