Matt DiLeo previews Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Semi-Finals between the Islanders and Flyers and shares his predictions and picks.

The New York Islanders will take on the Philadelphia Flyers in game 2 of the Eastern Conference Semi-Finals on Wednesday, August 26th, at 3:00 pm EST.

New York Islanders vs Philadelphia Flyers Preview

I hope you guys followed my lead and took the + money on the Islanders in the first game! Let’s take an in depth look at the first game and see if we can snag some value for game 2.

Game 1 was all Islanders as they scored 6 minutes into the game and coasted to a 4-0 victory. They completely dominated the 5 on 5 play and shut down a very poor flyers power play unit as well. There were only 2 power plays the entire game, 1 for each team. There aren’t going to be a lot of power plays as both teams are very disciplined.

We knew scoring was going to be scarce, but I was expecting a 2-0 or maybe 2-1 victory by the Islanders. However, they scored with ease and coasted for the full 60 minutes. The flyers need to figure it out offensively AND defensively. I would expect the Flyers to fix the defensive side first, but I’m not sure they can fix it all in one day and expect to come out with a victory.

New York Islanders vs Philadelphia Flyers Game 2 Prediction

I am going to predict another low scoring affair, but I can’t choose a side here. If I had to lean one way, I would probably back the Islanders again. However, I would want -110 or greater. I think betting on the defense is the better play here. I would snag the under at 5 before it could possibly go lower.
