Washington

Washington" failed the first two matches of the series, and in the third match was defeated in overtime (1:2). Even then, "Metropolitans" were close to victory, but could not hold back the opponent's onslaught. However, in the fourth meeting, the Metropolitans were still lucky and losing 0:2, they pulled themselves together and snatched victory with a score of 3:2.

In that game, Evgeny Kuznetsov and Alexander Ovechkin scored with abandoned washers and the eighth number scored a double. Braden Holtby played no less beautifully, reflecting 24 shots. However, in fairness, we note that this fight is the first in the playoffs when Todd Rearden's wards were able to score more than two goals. In other cases, even two goals were given to them with great difficulty.

Islanders

The Islanders were probably already confident in their victory in the series after a 2-0 score in the last match, and this self-confidence did not go to their advantage. The “Islanders” obviously relaxed and paid for it, so in the upcoming fight they will probably act even more carefully. It is worth noting that they have never conceded more than three goals in a meeting in this Stanley Cup.

Barry Trotz's squad is usually great defensively, but also effective in attack. By the way, three hockey players have already scored seven points on the goal + pass system. Among them, we note Matthew Barzal, Josh Bailey and Anthony Beauville. Thus, in total in this playoff, the team suffered two defeats.

Prediction

The Islanders had a great start last match and were close to winning, but then relaxed and ended up leaving themselves for another fight. Most likely, if the Islanders play competently on the defensive in the upcoming meeting, as it was in the starting games, they will get victory and move on to the next round.

Our bet is the victory of the Islanders with the Asian handicap (0) with odds 1.97 in the bookmaker's office 1xBet.
