East 1st Round – Game 2, CAR leads series 1-0


As we gear up for game two of the NHL playoffs, the excitement among fans is palpable.


This Wednesday, the Carolina Hurricanes will enjoy home-ice advantage for the last time until game five against the formidable New York Islanders, who are coming off a heart-wrenching loss with a final score of 2-1 in the previous game.


The New York Islanders may not have been a dominant team in recent years, but one thing is certain – no team in the NHL wants to face them in the playoffs.


Among their standout players this season, Brock Nelson has been on a different level, leading the Islanders in points with an impressive 36 goals, 39 assists, and 75 points in just 82 games played.


Nelson enjoyed the best season of his career. The veteran was productive against Carolina, netting three goals in the four regular-season meetings but was held off the scoresheet in game one.


Mathew Barzal missed the last two months of the regular season due to a lower-body injury but made his return to the ice in game one. The 25-year-old is the Isles’ most important offensive player. 


  • The New York Islanders are 2-14 SU in their last 16 meetings with the Hurricanes.
  • The NY Islanders are 1-5 SU in their last 6 games on the road.
  • The Islanders are 2-7 SU in their last 9 games on the road against Carolina.

On the other hand, the Carolina Hurricanes have faced their share of adversity this season, yet still managed to secure the second spot in the league standings.


Although they stumbled a bit towards the end of the regular season, losing games they could have won, the playoffs are a whole different beast.


Martin Necas ended up leading the squad in points this season. The 24-year-old center is one of the more underrated players in the league.


He registered 71 points but was limited to one point against the Isles in the regular season. Sebastian Aho wasn’t quite as dangerous as last season but was able to collect 67 points. He has produced in the playoffs in his career. 


Adding to the Hurricanes’ challenges, they took a big blow when Max Pacioretty returned from a potentially career-ending injury, only to suffer the same injury again less than ten games later, ruling him out for the season.


Furthermore, their star player, Andrei Svechnikov, underwent season-ending surgery, leaving the Hurricanes without their top talent for the entire postseason.


  • The total remained UNDER in 9 of Carolina’s last 11 games.
  • The Carolina Hurricanes are 6-3 SU in their last 9 games.
  • The total stayed UNDER in 5 of Carolina’s last 5 games at home.
