New York Islanders
The Islanders are having a great season. But, despite winning four of their last five and seven of their last 10, they’ve lost their lead atop the East Division to the Washington Capitals.
However, this is still a dangerous team that leads the division in goals allowed and goal differential. They currently boast the third-best goals allowed per game in the NHL, as goalie Semyon Varlamov continues to play impressively behind a good defense.
However, the best thing about the Islanders is how profitable they are. If you bet $100 on every Islanders moneyline this season, you’d be up $549.
The Bruins normally dominant defense has been shaky lately. Perhaps this team is finally missing Tuuka Rask.
Anyways, they’ve allowed at least two girls in their last five games and even let up eight against the Capitals last Sunday. They’ve now allowed 106 goals this season, are down to a +6 goal differential and rank eighth in goals allowed per game.
However, as per usual, the Bruins are dominant on both the power play and the penalty kill. They rank sixth in the NHL power play opportunities and fourth in the NHL in penalty kills. The Bruins rely on their perfection line and this area is where they really make their money.
Free New York Islanders vs. Boston Bruins NHL Prediction:
I think this is a good spot for the Bruins to steal a home win against the Islanders.
Despite a dominant record, the Islanders are only 9-9-2 on the road this season. Plus, early lines have them as an underdog, and they are just 5-4 in those situations this season.
The Bruins have lost every game against the Islanders this season, and that streak has to end eventually. They’ve only played one game of this series at home, where the Bruins lost 4-3 on March 25th, and odds are the Bruins pick up this home game.
