The NHL playoffs are finally here and the Eastern conference is expected to be ultra competitive. In this game the Pittsburgh Penguins make the trip to the Barclays Center to take on the New York Islanders.
The first game played between these two teams, it took overtime but the Islanders got the job done.
The Pittsburgh Penguins have to be surprised going on the road to start the playoffs but they are still slight favorites to win game two in the series.
In the first game of the series the Pirates fell behind early and although they were able to make a comeback and force overtime they still lost the game.
In this game it’s all about the start. They need to get out to a fast start early and get the crowd to be taken out of the game early.
New York Islanders
On the other side of this matchup is the New York Islanders who have had quite the season and it’s all been about the defense.
For the Islanders they are averaging only 2.7 goals per game but the defense has been strong giving up only 2.33 goals per game.
In game one it was actually the offense that was the difference though and the defense actually struggled late and let them back in the game.
