New York vs Carolina: Well Rested Islanders Host Weary Hurricanes

New York vs Carolina: Well Rested Islanders Host Weary Hurricanes
Completing a brutal season opening schedule, Carolina is in New York as part of the eight-game National Hockey League slate at SportsInteraction tonight. The Hurricanes have barely been a mist so far this season while the Islanders have played like Stanley Cup contenders during their first nine contests. Puck drop for this NHL Metropolitan Division matchup is scheduled for 7:00 PM ET on October 29, 2015, at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

New York Islanders: Red-hot after a stumble versus the Champs

While Montreal has been the toast of the NHL early on in the season, New York has quietly gone about their business and they are one of the hotter teams in the league. Following 3-2 (OT) and 4-1 losses during a home-and-home set vs the defending Stanley Cup Champion Chicago Blackhawks, the Islanders have rolled to a 6-1 record. Regardless of their level of competition, whether versus cellar dwelling clubs like Columbus and Calgary or current top five talents such as St. Louis and Nashville, we like how the Brooklyn Boys play a high tempo style every night.

Carolina Hurricanes: Season opening schedule from hell is mercifully coming to a close

We’re not sure what Carolina did to the NHL schedule makers but it must have been bad eh? How else can their season opening schedule of two home games vs eight road contests be explained? That stretch includes the current 14-day seven game cross-country road trip that ends in New York tonight. Although having to get right back at it tomorrow night against Colorado doesn’t seem fair either. Apart from the brutal schedule, offense and defense share equal blame for the Hurricanes futility as Carolina has been outscored by a 17-26 combined count en-route to their 3-6 record. 

Islander vs Hurricanes NHL Prediction: Carolina’s Eddie Lack (0-2 GAA 4.77) versus New York’s Thomas Greiss (3-0 GGA 2.44) is a battle of backups in this matchup tonight – with a slight edge going to Greiss. Everything else in this contest favors New York including the better offense, home ice advantage and overall superior talent. Give us the Boys from Brooklyn with a 1000 unit wager on the money line price posted at SportsInteraction. Load up and prosper folks!
