Free Florida Panthers vs. New York Islanders NHL Prediction:
I’m liking the total staying under five in this one. With the teams playing on back-to-back days, I think someone is going to have difficulty getting things going. Add the fact that Greiss and Bobrovsky will be in the nets, and I think the game ends as a low scoring affair. New York had a very solid defense the entire season, but they had issues from time to time putting the puck in the net.
I do think the Islanders will wrap this series up on Wednesday, but I think they do it with a low score. My money is on the total staying under five.
