Tampa Bay Lightning vs New York Islanders NHL Free Pick
Why should you bet on New York to win?
The Islanders won the season series between these two teams, winning twice in regulation while the Lightning picked up one win. They last played on April 4, with the Islanders rolling to a 5-2 win. Captain John Tavares tallied a goal and two assists. On offense in the quarterfinal round, Tavares also led the way, tallying five goals including two of the goals that brought overtime games to an end. Thomas Greiss took the net in relief of injured Jaroslva Halak and was nothing but spectacular, posting a .944 save percentage that is just slightly below the amazing .950 save percentage that the Tampa Bay netminder, Ben Bishop, posted in their opening round tattooing of the Detroit Red Wings.
