Appearing his first game of the postseason, Tyler Kennedy found a way to make an immediate impact by scoring the game-winning goal in last night's 4-0 victory against the Islanders in Game 5.

Kennedy's success should not be surprising. It was his sixth career game-winning goal in the postseason, the sixth-best total in franchise history:
