The 2nd leg of a home and home between the Islanders and Hurricanes shifts to Carolina on Tuesday night.
Carolina put up an 8 spot in an 8-4 win on Monday in Brooklyn.
New York Islanders
The New York Islanders have dropped back to back games and continue to sputter when it comes to the NHL Playoff race.
New York is now in 9th place in the East, tied with Tampa Bay. The Islanders have really been struggling on the defensive end, the main reason for their issues as of late.
G Thomas Greiss was expected to get some rest on Monday, in prep for this back to back, but that ended up not being the case.
Jean-Francois Berube got the start Monday and allowed 4 goals on just 13 shots, before eventually being yanked. Greiss is expected to be in between the pipes on Tuesday.
The Hurricanes are one of the worst scoring offenses in the NHL, but when it comes to playing the Islanders they seem to just wake up.
Carolina has tallied 20 goals in 3 meetings this season with the Islanders and that 8 spot on Monday was quite impressive.
Still, they are 9 points out of a playoff spot as they are likely going to find themselves on the outside looking in when it’s all said and done.
Left wing Jeff Skinner continues to lead the team as he added a pair of goals to his numbers on Monday. He now sits with 23 goals and 45 points on the season.
