TAMPA (WFLA) – The Tampa Bay Lightning will take on a familiar foe on their road to potentially repeating as Stanley Cup champions for the first time since 2016-2017.
The Lightning will take on the New York Islanders in the Stanley Cup semifinals. The Islanders defeated the Boston Bruins in their game on Wednesday night with the score of 6-2, winning their series 4-2.
The Bolts defeated the Islanders 4-2 last year in the NHL playoff bubble.
This will be the fourth playoff meeting between the two teams with the Lightning winning the previous three series.
