Philadelphia vs Islanders: who will be stronger in the first leg?
24/08/2020, 23:00 GTM
Two opponents, who confidently played the previous series, will score a lot in full-time play.
“Philadelphia” looks very good in this playoff and played well even before the series with “Montreal” and confidently dealt with powerful rivals. In the matches with the Islanders was felt the superiority of the Pilots, especially in defense. Yes, twice Alain Vigno's wards were still able to concede five goals, but in other meetings the Canadians were not allowed to excel more than two times.
For example, after the defeat with a score of 3:5, the team worked well in defense and won victory in the decisive match - 3:2. Of course, this is largely due to Carter Hart, who is in great shape and makes a huge number of saves every time. So, in the last game he saved his team 31 times.

The Islanders are a worthy contender for Philadelphia and look great i this Stanley Cup too. The team dealt quite easily with Florida (3:1) and then switched to Washington, which was allowed to take only one match. After being defeated by Metropolian in the fourth match, the Islanders completely neutralized the opponent's attack and did not concede a single puck, winning 4-0 and going to the next round.
At the moment, one of the main snipers is Anthony Beauville, who scored a double in the last game. The squad of Barry Trotz is not afraid to act as number two and feels comfortable at the same time, because the implementation of chances is at a high level.
We are waiting for a meeting of two teams of approximately the same style of play, which are used to act as the second number. However, someone will still have to take responsibility and go forward, fearing to run into a counterattack. We think that we will not see aggressive hockey in the opening match and clubs will play for a total less.
However, since the Pilots have already dealt in this playoffs with Tampa, Washington and Boston, we propose to bet on their victory.
Our forecast - total under 5.5 goals for 1.55 in bookmaker 1xBet.
We also take Philadelphia's victory with an Asian handicap (0) with odds of 1.95
