Pittsburgh Penguins vs. New York Islanders playoffs pick
- Title : Pittsburgh Penguins vs. New York Islanders playoffs pick
Did the Pittsburgh Penguins shoot their powder by the end of the regular season?
With nine wins from their last eleven games, they were the best team in the entire NHL and thus also secured the top seed of the East Division.
In the first home game against the Islanders, however, they then received a "heartbreaking" 3: 4 bankruptcy after overtime. Nevertheless, we don't think that this will throw them off course, after all the Penguins fired 42 shots again in this game.
In addition, the last time they lost two games in a row was 19 games back. At that time they also missed top striker Evgeni Malkin - just like on Sunday in game 1. He is now expected back in the line-up for the second game.
This should give them the push they need to level the streak. That's why our forecast for Penguins vs. Islanders is a victory for the home team from Pittsburgh, which was at home with a strong 22: 6 balance in the regular season.
The first face-off from Game 2 is in Pittsburgh on Wednesday night at 01:30.
