SUNRISE–John Tavares scored late in regulation and in the second overtime session as the New York Islanders defeated the Florida 2-1 to win the opening round series and advance to play Tampa Bay, the Panthers cross-state rivals in the second round.
Tavares scored the tying goal in the final minute of regulation after the Panthers were trying to score into the empty net. Thomas Greiss held the Panthers to 14 goals in six games and faced an onslaught of shots throughout the series. He also kept the Panthers top line of Jonathon Huberdeau, Aleksander Barkov and Jaromir Jagr at bay, limiting them to a combined 3 goals on almost 100 shots. A penalty shot in the first overtime of Game 5 was probably his most imporant stop of the series.
Jaromir Jagr is part of that trio, and spoke about the series with reporters after the game. Shared from Fox Sports Florida.

@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.
