The Pittsburgh Penguins will go against the New York Islanders in Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum, New York, on Wednesday, May 26, 2021, at 6:30 PM (EDT). The Penguins must win back-to-back matches to have any hope of escaping elimination in the next game. In the regular season, Pittsburgh’s defense was pretty decent, allowing only 2.7 goals.

The team struggled in the first round, allowing 11 goals in the last three games against an Islanders’ offense that faltered throughout the regular season despite Codi Ceci and  Kris Letang frequently creating mistakes in the neutral zone. While the defense struggled, the attack didn’t fare much better, scoring only 13 goals in five matches with the top line being strangely irrelevant.

  • The total went UNDER in 4 of Pittsburgh’s last 6 matches.

  • The Penguins are 8-4 SU in their last 12 matches against the NY Islanders.

  • The Penguins are 11-5 SU in their last 16 matches in the East conference.

Pittsburgh Penguins vs New York Islanders Predictions 5/26/2021

The Islanders defeated the Penguins 3-2 in double overtime in Game 5 in Pittsburgh to take the series advantage with three wins. The Islanders can move to the next round with a victory in Game 6 at home, and if they claim the series, they would pull off one of the biggest upsets in the playoffs. The defense, which only allowed three goals in the last two matches and kept perhaps the greatest top line in the league in check, deserves credit for the turnaround.

While the Islanders’ defense is outstanding, the offense establishes scoring punch and can maintain pressure on Pittsburgh’s defense. Josh Bailey had three goals in the first five matches of the series after scoring only eight goals in the regular season. Aside from Bailey, Kyle Palmieri, Anthony Beauvillier,  Jordan Eberle,  and Cal Clutterbuck all scored twice in the Penguins’ series, providing offensive depth for a squad trying to pursue one more win.

  • The NY Islanders are 14-6 SU in their last 20 matches at home.

  • The total went UNDER in 4 of the NY Islanders’ last 6 matches against Pittsburgh.

  • The NY Islanders are 5-13 SU in their last 18 matches played in May.
