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 three 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 but even so many believed they would be trailing at this point of the series.
Not only are they not trailing, they come into this game with a 3-0 series lead and a big reason for the success has been the defense.
In each of the last two games they have shut the high powered Penguins defense down giving up one goal in each of the games.
On the other side of this matchup is the Pittsburgh Penguins who come into this game needing to win or their season is over.
The offense has struggled during this series and it has led to the struggles that the team is seeing at this point of their season.
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.
