Florida has won the first match on home ice, having finished with Edmonton (4:1). This victory became the second after the victory over Winnipeg (4:2) in Finland. Roberto Luongo‘s return has added reliability in defense which wasn’t enough for the Cats. Panthers don’t score a lot of goals though in two last games they have scored eight goals.
Roberto Luongo has brilliantly returned after a trauma. For three meetings he has missed only three pucks, having stoned 95.9% of shots.
New York Islanders
New York couldn’t prolong the victorious series and has lost to Montreal (3:4, OT), and then to Tampa (2:4). Barry Trotz has improved the game in defense, last season Islanders were lacking the reliability. Yes, it was necessary to offer the quality of a game in attack, however now the Islanders demonstrate result, being on the fifth line in the table of the Eastern Conference.
Tomas Greiss became for a while the first goalkeeper of the team. For nine games he has missed only 15 goals, having earned GAA = 1.98.

Florida began to miss fewer pucks after Roberto Luongo has returned. It is impossible to say that the hosts show something supernatural and it will be difficult to score thanks to good defense of New York. We consider that this game won’t please with abundance of the thrown pucks.
