The NHL season is finally here! The opening week week continues on Thursday night with a full slate of games and most teams in action.
In this game the New York Islanders make the trip to PNC Arena to take on the Carolina Hurricanes. The two teams have split the last four games.
New York Islanders
The New York Islanders are a young team and there really not many expectations around this team but they are trying to use that to their advantage.
The Islanders are led by Andres Lee who is a natural goal scorer and they need him to get out to a fast start early.
In this game they need to get the first goal and try to play defense later. If they fall behind in this game it’s going to be an issue.
On the other side of this matchup is the Carolina Hurricanes who have a lot of questions coming into this game at the goaltending position.
Peter Mrazek came over from the Detriot Red Wings and they were hoping to have him as the backup this year, but with the Scott Darling injury, he will get the start.
He really struggled last season giving up over three goals a game and he needs to make a few saves early to keep up the confidence.
