The Islanders lost in the previous match with a score of 2:8. The last three matches out of four between the teams were played with a total of 5 more. The Lightning have won five matches in a row.
By the way, Braden Point had an outstanding match and scored two goals and three assists. The opponent often broke the rules, whereas John Cooper's wards skillfully took advantage of this three times. In general, the team has now found its balance both in defense and in attack, so it will be difficult for its opponent to adapt to this style of play.
We would like to emphasize that the Islanders, even in the last matches with Philadelphia, played unstably in defense and conceded four or five goals, although in the final meeting they played to zero. The head coach said that in the first game he had no complaints about the dedication of the players and stated that they simply did not use their chances. Also, Trots is sure that the hockey players will go to the second meeting even more "hungry" and more "angry" in a sporty way.
Based on this, we think that the scenario of the second match will be similar to the first one and therefore we take the victory of the Bolts and the total more.
Our prediction is that Tampa will win for 2.06 in 1xBet.
We also take total over 5 pucks with odds 1.78
