In a game from NHL, we will see Florida Panthers at New York Islanders.
Both the Islanders and the Panthers had disappointing starts to their season. Florida is scoring 3.3 goals per game but their defense is very poor, allowing 4.3 goals. Their offensive players such as Evgenii Dadonov and Keith Yandle are leading the way in goals scored and assists provided. James Reimer is expected to start at goal on Wednesday and he has allowed 13 goals on 98 shots so far. The Panthers have allowed three or more goals in each of their last six games.
The New York Islanders lost 4 of their last 6 games while allowing 4 or more goals in that stretch. Their performances on offense are very inconsistent as they are averaging 2.9 goals per game but there are games when they struggle to get enough shots on target, hence, scoring enough goals. Robin Lehner has given up 10 goals on 134 shots faced and Thomas Greiss has allowed eight goals on 98 shots.
The Florida Panthers have some good players on their roster but the loss of Roberto Luongo is killing the defense. Playing on short rest doesn’t help either and I believe that the Islanders who will be well rested and prepared will get the W in a high-scoring game.
