As suspected in this series, the Carolina Hurricanes were the heavy favorites and they duly delivered in game one with a 3-1 victory.

Can the Islanders bounce back in this spot or will they be heading to Long Island with their tail between their legs and 2-0 down in the series?

New York Islanders vs. Carolina Hurricanes

Monday, April 22, 2024 – 07:30 PM ET at PNC Arena

Carolina to Seal the Deal 

Nothing’s ever set in stone in the NHL, but this was one of the worst mismatches of round one. With the Carolina Hurricanes as low as -250 NHL betting odds to advance past the Islanders and following a solid 3-1 win last time out, we expect more of the same from the team who are now the overall favorites to lift the Stanley Cup at +650 betting odds.

The Hurricanes still need to win three more games to advance into round two but with two games coming up on the road we believe they will be strong enough to take a 2-0 lead into New York.

Carolina is one of the best defensive units in the league, while the Islanders are one of the worst offensive teams to make the playoffs. We said from game one this would be over in 4 or 5 games max and we will stand by our statement.

The Pick

The Hurricanes are a far better team than the Islanders, and any hope the Islanders have of winning a game will most likely come on home ice. Look for the Hurricanes to get the win in regulation in this game at -115 odds.
