The NHL playoffs are finally here and the Eastern conference is expected to be ultra competitive. In this game the series returns to Pittsburgh between the Penguins and the New York Islanders.
In the first two games of this series the Islanders were able to come away with the victory.
New York Islanders
The New York Islanders are the higher seeded team and that allowed them to play the first two games of this series at home, even though many expected the Penguins to dominate the series.
So far though it looks like the Islanders are the better team, and they come into this game with a 2-0 series lead. In the last game they only gave up one goal and that led to an easy victory.
In this game on the road the defense is going to need to be strong again. If the defense is good they should at least compete for another big upset in this game.
On the other side of this matchup is the Pittsburgh Penguins who need to treat this like a must win game, because a loss here probably means the end of their season.
In the first two games they have looked lost and in five of the six periods the offense has really struggled and that needs to change in this game.
In this game they can’t expect to score only a goal or two and come away with a victory. If the offense is bad they will lose this game.
