Boston Bruins

The Boston Bruins also split their first two matches of the season: winning a shootout in their opener on Thursday and losing in OT on Saturday, both against the Devils in New Jersey. And as they continue their early road trip, Patrice Bergeron is preaching patience. The Bruins captain said in particular that his team is still a work in progress and that they just have to focus on being consistent every time they step on the ice. The 35-year-old is trying to set an example for his teammates by walking the talk. Besides his leadership, Bergeron has made crucial plays himself after two games, including an assist in the SO win and the lone goal in Saturday’s loss. 

Players to watch: B. Marchand C G 1 A 2 PTS 3, P. Bergeron C G 1 A 1 PTS 2, D. Krejci C G 0 A 1 PTS 1

New York Islanders

The loss to the Rangers in the second straight game of the Battle of New York served as a quick reality check for the Islanders, taking into account the way they played in their season opener. After they blew out their rivals to begin the season on Thursday, 4-0, the Islanders were quickly sent back to earth two days later. Semyon Varlamov’s untimely injury crippled the Islanders as the team had to settle with Ilya Sorokin, who was making his league debut, which contributed to the embarrassing rout. But Barry Trotz refused to point fingers. Instead, the Islanders coach underlined that his team needs to manage their turnovers, citing that their reckless play allowed the Rangers to score 80% of their total output last time around.

Players to watch: A. Lee C G 2 A 0 PTS 2, N. Leddy D G 0 A 2 PTS 2, C. Clutterbuck RW G 0 A 1 PTS 1

Bruins vs Islanders Betting Picks

The Islanders won’t go scoreless on two straight games; however, the Bruins will still own them on Monday. Boston will be more fluid on their third straight road game as they recognized their lapses during the gut-punching loss on Saturday. The visitors will have an easy crack on the Islanders’ defense that was exposed against the Rangers two days ago. New York will enter the game with its own bounce back intentions as well, but Boston’s cohesion on both ends will still prevail.

Score Prediction: Bruins 5, Islanders 3.
