Boston Bruins – New York Islanders Series Prediction:
The Bruins and Islanders will be a tight series. The Islanders always seem to have the Bruins’ number and beat them even when the Bruins are hot.
However, the Bruins have had significant rest and will have home-ice advantage. The Islanders beat the Penguins in 6 games facing a very shaky Tristan Jarry in goal.
It will be hard for the Islanders to dominate Tuukka Rask even though they made scoring look easy against the Penguins.
I don’t think the B’s will have it as easy this time around like they did against the Capitals, but I do think if the offense is as productive as Round 1, they can win the series.
Prediction: Bruins in 7
Just like the first round, the Causeway Crowd team is confident in the B’s. And they have every right to be. The B’s took quick care of the Caps and could very well do the same with the Isles. However, most of us seem to think this series will either go six or seven games.
