Islanders vs Hurricanes Game 2 Predictions

Sports Chat Place

Sports Chat Place believes that the Islanders will get back on track and win Game 2. New York has only given up one goal in each of its last four games and that stellar defense should be able to help even up the series.

Picks Wise

Picks Wise likes the Islanders to win as well. They note that Rob Lehner has been fantastic in goal for New York and will stifle the Hurricanes again, but this time in an Islanders' win.

Esten McLaren also has the Islanders winning Game 2 and evening up the series. McLaren says that Hurricanes goalie Petr Mrazek has been inconsistent and won't be able to put up back-to-back shutouts.

That's a clean sweet withy all three experts going with the Islanders to win Game 2 and send the series back to Carolina tied at one apiece.
