Point scores again, Lightning beat Islanders 2-1 in Game 3

UNIONDALE, N.Y. (AP) After keeping up his scoring touch to help Tampa Bay get a big road victory its Stanley Cup semifinal series, Brayden Point was especially proud of the Lightning's defensive effort.

Point got the tiebreaking goal late in the second period, Andrei Vasilevskiy stopped 27 shots and the Lightning beat the New York Islanders 2-1 on Thursday night to take a 2-1 series lead.

The Islanders outshot the Lightning 8-5 in a tight third period, but couldn't tie it. They pulled goalie Semyon Varlamov for an extra skater with about 1:48 remaining but couldn't manage a shot on goal."
