New York Islanders vs Florida Panthers 08/05/2020 Betting Odds:
New York Islanders
New York Islanders have put the pressure on the Panthers as they built a commanding 2-0 lead after their 4-2 victory in Game 2 on Tuesday. Momentum will definitely be on New York’s side as Game 3 is set immediately on Wednesday. A lot of credit has to be given to goalie Semyon Varlamov, who has allowed just three goals in two games, and Jordan Eberle, who notched two goals in Game 2 alone. But despite holding the edge, the Isles should still expect a tough Game 3. As they say, the toughest part is closing out a series.
Players to watch: Matthew Barzal (GP 68, G 19, A 41, PTS 60), Brock Nelson (GP 68, G 26, A 28, PTS 54), Anders Lee (GP 68, G 20, A 23, PTS 43).
The backs of the Panthers are against the wall. Unfortunately for them, they will not be given the benefit to recuperate from Tuesday’s painful loss. Bruised and battered, Florida has no choice but to continue fighting for its dear life against a confident New York side. But hope’s not lost for the Panthers despite the disadvantage. After all, Game 2 showed that they can put the fight on New York by leading twice in the game. Quick adjustments are expected for Game 3 and they sure are hoping to flip the switch to keep the series alive.
Players to watch: Jonathan Huberdeau (GP 69, G 23, A 55, PTS 78), Aleksander Barkov (GP 66, G 20, A 42, PTS 62), Mike Hoffman (GP 69, G 29, A 30, PTS 59).
