Islanders vs Philadelphia: will the series end in the Islanders' favor?
03/09/2020, at 23:00 GMT
The Islanders have won the last two of their three games against Philadelphia.
Philadelphia are losing in the series with a score of 2:3.
Two matches out of five between teams were played with a total of 4.5 less.
The Islanders would have ended the streak in the previous game if they hadn't lost again 3-4 in overtime. The team did not play in the best way at the end of the second period and the beginning of the third 20 minutes, for which they paid with three goals. Nelson and Brassard transferred the game into extra time, but still in the 73-rd minute the Islanders lost.
If Barry Trotz's charges manage to hold back the onslaught of the opponent in the attack, then three goals are enough for them to win. However, given the style of play of this team, it is very difficult for them to complete more than four goals and because of this they face big problems.

“Philadelphia” got again a very hard victory for themselves and spent a huge amount of energy. Let's remind that with the same score the "Pilots" won victory in the second match and then acted in the opponent's zone in about the same way as in the fifth game. Alain Vigno's squad has a hard time proposing something to the opponent in the middle zone and they often face a problem when crossing the blue line.
In addition, the attackers are not given space, either by pressing them against the board, or by playing hard in the body. Even Claude Giroud cannot help his team in any way and, frankly speaking, is doing poorly this Stanley Cup, because he managed to score only one goal in 14 meetings.
We think that the Islanders will try again to knit their opponents in the middle zone and try not to give the attackers proper space. As a result, the game will turn out to be closed and in this situation the "Islanders" will feel great. We think that the minimum number of pucks awaits us and we also bet that the Isla will complete the series.
Our forecast is a total under 4.5 goals for 2.11 in 1xBet.
