Islanders aim to forget blowout, set for Lightning in Game 6

The New York Islanders don't plan to spend too much time thinking about their blowout loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning that's put them on the verge of being ousted from the Stanley Cup semifinals.

The 8-0 loss on Monday night has the Islanders in a 3-2 series hole heading into Game 6 at home on Wednesday night, facing elimination for the first time this postseason.

"It's a seven-game series, it's not just one game," forward Casey Cizikas said. "These things happen, it's definitely not fun losing games like that, but you learn what it takes. They're a Stanley Cup team, they know what they have to do to be successful, so going into tomorrow night our main focus is to play our game for 60 minutes and do that right from the get-go."
