Tampa Bay Lightning Vs. New York Islanders Predictions
By far the best game of the week will have the two best teams in the Eastern Conference clashing when the Tampa Bay Lightning visit the New York Islanders on Friday Night. Not many believe Tampa Bay is beatable in the playoffs, but the Islanders have a chance to put a doubt in some people’s mind. The Lightning is the best team in the NHL. They are not unbeatable, but it’s hard to have a chance against them when all they have is the best scoring unit in the league. Tampa Bay is scoring at an unprecedented pace this season. They have scored 199 goals already and are +59 in the goals plus-minus. The next best thing is the Calgary Flames at +45.
Tampa Bay has won seven of their last seven games, including a 6-3 victory against the Sharks in their previous outing. But they have something to prove against the Islanders on Friday. The last time they visited the Nassau Coliseum just a few days ago, they ended up getting slammed 5-1 in one of their worst defeats in the season. If anybody can give the Lightning a game and believe in the upset are the Islanders. New York is second in the Eastern Conference standings, and after beating Tampa Bay just days ago, they have both the mental edge and the momentum on their side.
Before losing against the Islanders a few days ago, the Lightning had won three games in a row in the series. In fact, in the last ten games against New York, Tampa Bay has come on top eight times. As impressive as the Islanders win was against the Lightning a couple of weeks ago, I can’t see the same development happening again. Tampa Bay is the best team in the NHL, and I can’t see them losing twice in a row against the same opponent. What’s the play? Tampa Bay.
