Why Bet on the New York Islanders?
The Islanders are a stellar team, picking up where they left off in the previous season. They enter the game with a 21-8-4 win-loss-overtime record, leading the East Division and holds the third-best overall record in the league. Recent statistics tell us that the Islanders only allow a league-low 2.18 goals per game.
In contrast with the defense is the Islanders’ reliable forwards. If the team scores enough goals in the coming games, there’s a big chance that they enter the postseason with overflowing morale. Yes, there are several areas that the Islanders still have to work on such as scoring, but we believe that they have what it takes to beat most teams in the league.
Why Bet on the Boston Bruins?
Sitting fourth in the East Division with 32 points are the Boston Bruins. Entering Thursday, they are 10 points behind the Islanders and are looking to add a few more to that to close down on the third spot which is currently held by the Penguins. More than that, if they do well in the remainder of the season, they can make a statement and top the East Division. With only 28 games under their belt–5 less than the Islanders–they even have a shot at the top spot.
The Bruins don’t have a high-scoring attack, but they make up for it with great netminding behind the tandem of Jaroslav Halak and Tuukka Rask. Halak, in particular, is 7-4-2 with a 2.06 GAA and .921 SV%. The Bruins also have the best penalty kill in the NHL this season, snuffing out opposing power plays 89.4 percent of the time.
The upcoming game will be a good test for the team from Boston. And with homecourt advantage on their side, we can guarantee an interesting match ahead of us.
