The Florida Panthers and the New York Islanders will meet at the UBS Arena in New York to play their first game of the 2022-2023 season. These teams met 3 times last season and the Panthers dominated the Isles beating them the 3 times.
The Panthers made it to the playoffs last season but were swept by the Tampa Bay Lightning in the Conference 2nd round. They ended up with a 58-18-6 record overall ranking 1st in the Atlantic Division. The Panthers were 41-18 in Eastern Conference games and led the Eastern Conference shooting 11.1% while averaging 4.1 goals on 37.6 shots per game.
Aleksander Barkov had 39 goals and 49 assists for the Panthers. Carter Verhaeghe has scored eight goals with six assists over the past 10 games.
They struggled offensively in their last series vs Tampa averaging only 1 goal per game, five assists, 4.8 penalties and 10.2 penalty minutes while giving up 4 goals per game.
New York Islanders
The Islanders barely broke the .500 barrier with a 37-35-10 record overall ranking fifth in the Metropolitan Division. The Isles were 14-9-2 against division opponents and were last in the Eastern Conference shooting 28.8 shots per game.
Brock Nelson led the Islanders with 58 points, scoring 36 goals and adding 22 assists. Josh Bailey has four goals and three assists over the last 10 games for New York.
In their last 10 games the Isles were 3-7, averaging 2.7 goals, 3.8 assists, 4.3 penalties and 10.8 penalty minutes while giving up 3.5 goals per game with an .900 save percentage.
Florida are 1-4 SU in their last 5 games.
Florida are 4-1 SU in their last 5 games against NY Islanders.
The total has gone UNDER in 6 of Florida's last 9 games on the road.
The total has gone UNDER in 10 of Florida's last 11 games when playing on the road against NY Islanders.
The total has gone OVER in 5 of NY Islanders' last 6 games.
NY Islanders are 2-6 SU in their last 8 games.
The total has gone OVER in 4 of NY Islanders' last 6 games against Florida.
The total has gone OVER in 6 of NY Islanders' last 7 games at home.
The Panthers made some moves in the offseason as they traded the leading point-getter Jonathan Huberdeau to Calgary for Matthew Tkachuk so they'll still be one of the toughest teams to beat this season. The Islanders had a bad season last year and were dominated by the Panthers losing the 3 times they faced them. Both defenses are solid so I don't expect a blowout on this one, also this is the first game of the season. With the under cashing big time when these teams have met in New York I think that's the best play. Take the under.
