New York Islanders
The New York Islanders have had an up and down season, and right now they are in one of those downward spirals and they need it to end quick.
They come into this game having lost five straight games, and a lot of that has to do with the defensive zone.
In their last game against Montreal, the defense struggled in a big way giving up six goals and that led to a bad loss.
They are facing a good team in the Penguins and their offense can be explosive. The Islanders need to play a lot better in the defensive zone.
The Pittsburgh Penguins also come into this game really struggling. The defense has been terrible as of late and that has led to three straight losses.
In the three losses, they have given up 17 goals, which is a very concerning trend.
To win this game the defense is going to need to be better. They need to lock down on the Islanders and that will lead to the victory.
