Why The Islanders Will Cover The Spread/Win

New York will have to play well in the defensive zone if they want to at least cover this spread. They did allow just two real goals in game one as the third one was actually an empty-netter. The Islanders' goaltenders were pretty good in the regular season as they had the seventh-best save percentage in the NHL. New York needs to make sure they do not allow shot after shot on net, but they will be able to make more saves. If the Islanders can have a good game in the defensive zone, they will cover this spread.

Why The Hurricanes Will Cover The Spread/Win

The Hurricanes held the Islanders to just one goal in the first game, but that should not come as a surprise. Carolina was the fourth-best team in the NHL when it comes to goaltending. They allowed 2.57 goals per game, and the least amount of shots during the regular season. The Hurricanes have played very well in the defensive zone all season, and that should continue in this game.

The Islanders scored less than three goals per game in the regular season, and just one goal in game one of this series. The Hurricanes will be able to play well in the defensive zone once again. In fact, at home this season, the Hurricanes have allowed just 2.41 goals per game. They are much better on their home ice, and that is exactly where this game is being played.

Final Islanders-Hurricanes Prediction and Pick

This is going to be another good game. These teams played each other extremely tough in the regular season, and game one of their playoff series was an awesome watch, as well. When it comes to picking a winner, I am going to choose the Hurricanes. Carolina has been great in net, and the defensive zone in general, and that will play to their advantage in this game.
