NHL.com Preview:

Defenseman Michael Matheson, who replaced Jakub Kindl for Game 2, is expected to play again Sunday. Matheson was plus-1 in 13:28 in Florida's 3-1 win Friday. "We haven't decided on the lineup for [Sunday], but he played a great game [Friday] night," Gallant said. "I was real happy with the way he played. He's like every other player; he made a mistake or two, but overall it was a real good, solid game. He showed he belongs." (More)

Yahoo.com Preview:

The Islanders' first season in Brooklyn resulted in a 25-11-5 home record, including a split of two meetings with Florida. The Panthers won 5-1 on Dec. 15 before New York earned a 3-2 win March 14. Jaroslav Halak, out for this series with a groin injury, was in net for the loss before Greiss made 23 saves in the win. Luongo was between the pipes for both contests and stopped 58 of 62 shots, improving his career goals-against average on the road against the Islanders to 2.30 and his save percentage to .933, though he's won just six of those 15 games.
