Islanders Owning Lightning in New York

After splitting two games in Tampa Bay, the Islanders and their backers will be happy to see the series shift to the Barclays Center as the Islanders have won eight of the last nine times they’ve hosted the Lightning. They last met in New York on April 4, where the Islanders easily won 5-2.

Shark Bites
  • The visiting team is 2-7 in the last nine games in this matchup.
  • The total has gone OVER in five of the Islanders' last six games after a loss.
  • The total has gone OVER in seven of the Lightning' last 10 games after a win.

Another positive trend developing for the Isles is their ability to bounce back after a loss, as they’re 3-0 in their last three games following a loss. The Lightning, meanwhile, haven’t exactly been great at stringing wins together, as they’re 2-6 in their last eight games after a win.

Working in Tampa’s favor is how well they’re played with a few days of rest between games. They’re currently on a run that’s seen them go 9-3 in their last 12 games with two days off between games, while the Islanders have struggled in that spot, going 3-7 in their last 10 games with two days off between games.

The total for the game is set at 5 goals — a mark they’ve topped in five of their last eight games against each other.
