Carolina Hurricanes at New York Islanders

Two teams that had been losing a pile of games a month ago that have seen their fortunes turn around are Carolina and the New York Islanders.

Carolina was having a pretty good December, starting 4-2-2, before losing five straight games (0-3-2) to Eastern Conference teams, most of them division rivals. They have now won two in a row now, scoring nine goals in the process.

The Islanders were sitting at 8-18-5 as a team on December 10th and have gone 6-3-2 in their nine games since. Part of it is their goal scoring – five of their six wins have come in games where they score three goals or more – part of it might be good teams over-looking a bad team in what could be seen as a “letdown” spot.

This is the third meeting between these two teams this year, with Carolina taking the first two games by a combined score of 5-3. Tonight could produce a pile of goals, so I will be hot on a lot of skaters in this game but will be avoiding the goalies.

Note: In their last meeting, the Tavares line was lined against the Eric Staal line mostly and then Carolina coach Kirk Muller got the Staal line matched away from them. They might not be able to do that tonight.
