Just past the 17 minute mark of the third, Halak seemed to exchange his glove for sieve. He gave up three goals in less than one minute to record his fifth consecutive loss.

Jaroslav Halak faced 43 shots Saturday night, but it was the three that slipped past that gave the New York Islanders a 3-2 loss to the Florida Panthers.

Halak was perfect for the first two periods, blocking 28 shots until the Panthers got their second wind in the third. Florida’s attempts dropped in the third to 11 shots on goal, but that was when their offense was most productive and they tied the game with less than a minute in regulation. Ultimately, it was the overtime performance that was Halak’s undoing. The Islanders were unable to provide any relief at the other end of the rink and Denis Malgin’s unassisted goal with 46 seconds remaining was the fourth shot of the period.

Islanders coach Jack Capuano wasn't happy with Jaroslav Halak's performance on Thursday.

Halak stopped 13 of 16 shots in 22:50 minutes of play before being yanked. His performance during two power-play goals in particular was called into question. "It’s about whether you feel he’s focused or not, that’s all," Capuano said. "We’ve got to find a way to kill a penalty, our goaltender included." It wouldn't be surprising if Thomas Greiss gets the nod on Saturday.
