Islanders' Ryan Pulock makes last-second save to even series with Lightning

UNIONDALE, N.Y. — With their Stanley Cup dreams on the line, Ryan Pulock kept the Islanders' hopes alive.

That's where the blueliner Pulock came in.

With ‘The Save,’ Islanders Defenseman Ryan Pulock Authors An All-Time Iconic New York Sports Moment

There have been plenty of charmed, maybe-this-really-is-their-year moments for the Islanders in the NHL playoffs.

You’d marvel at how the Islanders defenseman crawled along the goal line in the final second — literally, with :01 left in regulation — and managed to set aside a brilliant spin-o-rama shot from Tampa’s Ryan McDonagh after McDonagh’s last-ditch shot slithered past Isles goalie Semyon Varlamov.
