Islanders vs Tampa Bay: who will win Game 6?
18/09/2020, at 00:00 GMT
Tampa won the match before last against the Islanders 4-1.
The Islanders are behind in the series - 2:3.
The previous meeting between teams ended in overtime.
The Islanders were more or less able to adjust to their opponents and prevailed in the fifth match of the series with a score of 2:1 in overtime. Of course, Braden Point's injury had a positive effect for the Islanders and therefore it was much easier for them to stop the Lightning attack than before.
However, at the same time, Semyon Varlamov showed himself again from his best side and reflected a total of 36 shots at his goal. In general, it should be noted that Barry Troz's wards realized in the last meeting almost all chances that they created in the opponent's zone and in total strained the goalkeeper only 24 times. Yes, the team is still having problems creating danger on Vasilevsky's patch and there is no getting around it.

“Tampa Bay” seemed to be able to also adapt and after the loss of Point played not so badly and created a large number of dangerous moments. Moreover, they even scored a second goal, which was later canceled. The Lightning had a chance to end the streak in their favor at the very end of the third period, as they played the majority for four minutes, but they did not use this opportunity.
In addition to Braden, the team has someone to score, so in the next match, John Cooper's squad will probably act more aggressively. And the Bolts have the motivation to complete this series as quickly as possible, so as not to give Dallas a full breath and rejuvenate.
In the upcoming duel the "Lightning" will be able to break open the Islanders' defense and score enough goals to reach the final. Our forecast and bet is that Tampa Bay will win the match for 1.66.
