The New York Islanders are not in the mood for the autumn break: In Game 5 against the Tampa Bay Lightning, the Isles sat 2-1 afterwards. and shortened to 2: 3 in the best-of-7 series.

In the 93rd minute all dams broke. Even with the rather calm and withdrawn goalkeeper Semyon Varlamov. But when the gate lamp came on in the second extension, there was no stopping the 32-year-old Russian. In a full sprint, the goalie left his workplace and slipped face down into the cheering cluster. When asked about this scene, Varlamov had to laugh again afterwards: “I was so tense and then I was really happy. Our season was at stake. When we scored, the emotions ran away with me.”

“It was nice to see that reaction,” said team-mate Ryan Pulock. “He was hot. It was an important win in an emotional game.” The Islanders had their backs against the wall. “We were able to extend the series and are looking forward to the next game.” This is especially true for the goalkeeper himself: “In my career I haven’t had the chance to play so many play-off games (45, ed.). I’m happy to be here. I have a lot of fun . That was a character win today. “
