The NY Islanders enter this game ranked 6th in the NHL, posting a record of 28-15-4 this season. The Islanders enter this game with a road record of 13-8-1 this season. The Islanders have lost two games in a row, and are 4-5-1 in their last 10 games played. Our host, on the other hand, are 9th in the NHL, compiling a record of 27-18-3 this year. Carolina enters this game with a home record of 15-8-1 so far. The Hurricanes are 5-4-1 in their last 10 games, losing in overtime most recently. Whichever team is going to win is going to be the team that finds their offensive spark in this game.

NY Islanders Try to Recover

The Islanders enter this game ranked 23rd in the NHL in goals scored per game when on the road. Mathew Barzal is needed to have a big game tonight if NY wants to get a win on the road. Barzal has the most points on this Islanders team and will need his teammates to start giving him more support. This Islanders squad needs to wake up on offensive to get back in the win column here tonight.

NY is ranked 5th in the NHL when it comes to goals allowed per game when on the road. The Islanders have gotten some great play out of Semyon Varlamov and Thomas Griess. Whichever goalie gets the start tonight should have a good game thanks to their skaters having a defense-first mentality.

Carolina Hurricanes Stay Hot At Home

The Carolina Hurricanes enter this game ranked 8th in the NHL in goals allowed per game when on home ice. Petr Mrazek has been struggling as of late but his skaters have done a great job buckling done and getting some wins. The Hurricanes will need Mrazek to play better than usual to get the win at home here tonight.

The Hurricanes are 11th in the NHL in goals scored per game when on home ice. Sebastian Aho has been clutch as of late and will need to continue scoring tonight to secure a win.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

I love the Carolina Hurricanes in this game. The Hurricanes have a ton of firepower that has not been fantastic this year but can have spurts of high scoring. Sebastian Aho is prime to have one of those games here tonight, one of the reasons the Hurricanes will continue to win. Dougie Hamilton will need to step up and try to produce in this game for Carolina to get the win. The NY Islanders are talented and may be solid when away from home, but they are struggling as of late going 1-4 in their last 5 games. Go with the home squad in this game and take the Hurricanes.

Prediction: Carolina Hurricanes

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

I love the total in this game. Go with the over as the under of 6 is insane, so let us go with the safer play and take the over. These two teams have a few solid scorers that can pop off at any moment. Dougie Hamilton and Anze Kopitar are just two men in this game who will lead the scoring in this game as the over is the play here. The Canes have skaters including Teuvo Teravainen that have some outstanding speed and the ability to create havoc for goalies. The Islanders have Brock Nelson as well and have spurts of low and high scoring this season. The under of 5.5 is just so hard to take in the NHL and is by far the hardest line to bet on. Just roll with the over in this game and do not fall for Vegas' trap in this one.

Prediction: Over 5.5
