Tampa Bay Lightning @ NY Islanders


Injuries and more injuries. This has been the story of the New York Islanders so far this season. Rick DiPietro, Trent Hunter, Matt Martin, Mottau, Okposo, Streit and Dough Weight are all out while the Islanders have won only 2 of their last 23 games.

Islanders, 6-18-6 will try to win for the seventh time this season when they meet the Tampa Bay Lightning at Nassau Coliseum tonight which is the third meeting between the clubs this season.

In previous meetings, each team beat the other once. Islanders won in Florida while the Bolts beat the Islanders 4-2 in New York.

Tamp Bay has a four game winning streak in which they beat the Carolina Hurricanes at home on Monday. 5-1 victory was the result as they outshot their opponents 34-22. They scored two powerplay goals on three attempts. Tampa's powerplay has been getting better. They have scored five powerplay goals in the last thirteen attempts in last four games. They lead the league in powerplay chances with 4.3 per game while they are also leading the league with 1.1 powerplay goals per game. However they also have the third worst defence in the league, allowing 3.3 goals per game.

Islanders are 2-11-3 on road and they are only 4-7-3 on home ice. They went 2-3-2 on home ice in last seven matches.

Roloson will start for the home side while Dan Ellis is getting the start in goal for the Tampa Bay Lightning. He also played against the Canes in Monday's 5-1 victory.

I like OVER in this one.
