New York Islanders
The Islanders joined the playoffs from seventh place in the Eastern Conference standings. At the end of the regular season, the team showed good hockey and met in the playoffs with the powerful Carolina. Immediately, the New Yorkers lost in two games – 1:2 and 3:4 in overtime. But after that, at home, Lane Lambert's wards scored an unexpected victory with a score of 5:1. Then there was also a home defeat (2:5), after which the Islanders didn't have the right to make a mistake. And on the road, with the score in the series 1:3, they beat the Hurricanes by one goal (3:2), so now the situation does not seem so unambiguous.
Carolina had a solid regular season, where they became the second in the standings of the East. Thanks to this, the Hurricanes did not get the strongest contender, but they were powerful, as it turned out. After 2-0 in the series, the Islanders created significant problems for the Hurricanes. If Andrei Svechnikov and Teuvo Teravainen were available, everything would be much easier, but they would have to cope without them. Now a crucial moment has come for Carolina – they still have the right to make a mistake, but at 3:3 in the series, the moral advantage will be on the opponent's side, meaning the victory must be here and now.
Expert Betting Tips
Anyway, Carolina is stronger than the Islanders. It is evident from the regular season and even the playoffs - New Yorkers will likely need more resources to achieve victory in this series. The Hurricanes know that losing the second match in a row and waiting for the seventh match in the series will not be the best scenario for them, which may turn out badly in the end. Carolina will be able to show the best hockey.
