Carolina vs New York Islanders: prediction for the NHL fixture
The Carolina Hurricanes take on the New York Islanders in the NHL action on October 15. Who will be the winner of this game? Our answer is in the prediction below.
The Carolina Hurricanes showed good results last season and topped their division following the results of the regular season. Carolina made it to the second round of the playoffs, where they were defeated by Tampa (1-4 in the series). The team didn't undergo any major changes in the offseason.
The Hurricanes played only four preseason games and lost in three of them. They played two games against both Tampa and Nashville. As a rule, Rod BrindAmour's strategy is to build the game through the attack, but the players have time to go back if they make a mistake.
New York Islanders
The New York Islanders remain a formidable opponent for any club in the NHL. The team knows how to play efficient defensive hockey; the Islanders are one of the least conceding teams in the league.
The Islanders come into this fixture on the back of a defeat in the preseason game against their rivals from across the city. The Islanders lost to the Rangers in a close game outside regulation (4:5 OT). Before that, Barry Trotz's men confidently beat Philadelphia (3:0).
Carolina scored fewer than 4 goals in the last 2 games against the Islanders.
In the last 2 games, Carolina didn't score in the second period.
Carolina are the favorites of this fight, but we don't believe in their victory. The Hurricanes looked extremely poor in the preseason and hardly could score. The Islanders, on the other hand, always defend well and do not allow their opponents to score more than two goals. We suggest betting on the success of the visitors.
Our prediction -Islanders to win with Asian handicap (0)
Prediction: Handicap (0) to Islanders
Do you agree with this bet?0 votes
Most of the games between these two clubs are low-scoring. Trotz's charges try to impose their game on the opponents and do not allow them to create scoring chances.
Second bet - total under 6 goals
