(NHL) NY Islanders vs. Tampa Bay, 03/30/2024 7:00 PM, Score: 1 - 4
Money Line: -155.00 Tampa Bay (Home)
Result: Win
Tampa Bay was on a 2-6 run including 4 straight losses at home from Feb 17th to 29th but they have rebounded to win 7 of 8 overall with the wins by a combined 33-13 and the loss coming in OT as an away dog. Tampa's penalty kill unit has allowed one goal in its last 32 power plays while having the #1 power play scoring % this season. Islanders are off a win at Florida, a team that is also struggling, making them just 2-7 their L9 games and during that stretch they topped 3 goals once while allowing 4+ goals 6 times. Islanders goalie Varlamov played well vs Florida so he gets the start again but it will be out of his routine as it is the first time he has started B2B games since Jan 27th.
back TB here Saturday night!
