The Panthers have been solid on special team throughout this season. Florida has scored on 57 of their 239 power play chances, which is a 23.9 percent power play. The Panthers have killed off 189 of their opponents 237 power play attempts, which is 79.8 percent kill rate. Florida is 6th on the power play and 15th on the kill this season.

New York will look to shut down the Panthers power play early. If either team can get a power play goal in this one, it could be enough to give them the edge.

Goaltending Comparison

Sergei Bobrovsky will likely get the start in the crease for Florida in this one. Bobrovsky has earned a record of 36-6-3 throughout his 49 starts on the season. He has posted a .912 save percentage and a GAA of 2.66 in those outings. Bobrovsky finished with 30 saves on 31 shots in his last start against the Winnipeg Jets.

I expect Ilya Sorokin to get the nod between the pipes for the Islanders on Tuesday night. Sorokin has started in 48 starts on the season, going 25-16-7 in those matchups. He has put up a save percentage of .927 and a 2.31 GAA in those games played. Sorokin’s last start was against the Toronto Maple Leafs. He stopped 33 of the 36 shots against, which was not enough.

These two goalies have been solid throughout this season and will look for a big win in this one. Sorokin has been the better goalie on the season and will look to come out quickly in this one. Bobrovsky has won ten straight starts in this one. If either goalie can come out fast in this one, it could be enough for the win.

Pick Overview

These two teams have been solid on the season and will look for a big two points in this one. Bobrovsky and the Panthers have been red hot as of late and will look to keep it going. New York has been eliminated, but I think that they will finish this season strong. If the Islanders can come out fast, I think they can pull off the upset.

Bovada has Florida listed as a -195 against the money line in this one.

This implies that the Panthers will win this game around 66.1 percent of the time. I think that this line should be closer to even with New York at home. The Islanders lost their last two games against Florida and will look to bounce back in this one. As big underdogs, I really like the value on New York.
