The NHL postseason always has its surprises and the 2019 version was anything le s than utterly shocking.This matchup should bejust as entertaining as it pits the New York Islanders againstthe Carolina Hurricanes, two teamswho surprised the NHL in the regular season and the postseason, respectively,Probably the most interesting aspect will be to see how the teams play in Game 1. The Islanders have been off since April 16following a sweep of the Pittsburgh Penguins while the Blue Jackets wrapped up a grueling seven-game series with the Washington Capitals on Wednesday in double overtime."We've tried to do our best to stay in game shape and game situations in practice," . "I know it's tough, especially when you watch all this hockey being played. But at the end of the day, it should be an advantage. We'll be rested and ready to go."SN STAFF PREDICTIONS: | | "I know they're sitting there probably licking their chops; we all would be the way this series went, seven games, overtime, the grind that this series was," Hurricanes head coach Rod Brind'Amour told reporters after Game 7 on Wednesday. "I haven't had time to think about it. I know they're a great team and that's Gerrit Cole Jersey why they're playing and they had a pretty easy round. They know how to win and they know how to do it right."The Islanders and Hurricanes now turn their sights to something they haven't done in 10 and 26 years, respectively, and that isplay in the Eastern Conference finals.New York Islanders(-140)vs. Carolina Hurricanes(+120): Schedule, breakdown, predictionDate Matchup Time (TV channel) April 26Game 1 at New York7 p.m. ET (NBCSN, SN, CBC, TVA)April 28Game 2 at New York3 p.m. ET (NBC, SN, CBC, TVA)May 1Game 3 at Carolina7 p.m. ET (NBCSN, SN, CBC, TVA)May 3Game 4 at Carolina7 p.m. ET (NBCSN, SN, CBC, TVA)*May 5Game 5 at New YorkTBD*May 7Game 6 at CarolinaTBD*May 8Game 7 at New YorkTBD(*if nece sary) Season seriesThe Islanders dominated Andy Pettitte Jersey the season series as they won three of four games in the matchup. However, in every game, they were backstopped by Thomas Grie s and not current No. 1, Robin Lehner. Will Barry Trotz turn to Grei s in the second round? Lehner (2.13 goals-against average, .930 save percentage) and Grei s (2.28 GAA and .927 save percentage) did have comparable stats during their William M. Jennings Trophy campaign.The Islanders head coach has committed to Lehner, who is 0-4-0 in his career against Carolina with a4.25 GAA and.885 save percentage not great numbers, especially when you compare it to Grei s whoposteda 1.76 GAA and .949 save percentage this season. Needle s to say, Trotz will keep Lehner on a short leash in this series.DATEROADHOMERESULTOct. 4IslandersHurricanesNYI, 2-1 (OT)Oct. 28IslandersHurricanesNYI, 2-1Nov. 24HurricanesIslandersNYI, 4-1Jan. 8HurricanesIslandersCAR, 4-3OffenseIf you're expecting a high-scoring contest night in and night out from these two teams, you may want to flip the channel. Both teams were situated in the bottom half of the NHL during the regular season in GF/GP. Carolina averaged 2.96 GF/GP (16th) and the Islanders were at 2.72 (22nd). In the postseason thus far, both of their output increased;3.00 for Carolina and 3.50 for the Islanders.The line of Anders Lee, Mathew Barzal and Jordan Eberle wreaked havoc on the Penguins in the four-game sweep as they combined for 14 points Evan Gattis Jersey with Eberle potting four goals, along with two a sists, and Barzal notching five helpers. But this is a roster that rolls four lines and the second line of Josh Bailey, Brock Nelson and Tom Kuhnhackl had six goals.Like Trotz, Rod Brind'Amour also rolls four lines and has scoring capabilities up and down his roster. Third-liner WarrenFoegele leads the squad with four goals in the postseason with second-line center Jordan Staal tied with Foegele and defenseman Dougie Hamilton with six points. The one thing that could factor in for Carolina is its defense as the blueliners have stepped up on the scoresheet in the playoffs. DefensemanJaccob Slavin leads the team in points with nine a sists and Hamilton has three goals and three a sists.Young star Andrei Svechnikov is a game-time decision and could add an offensive boost to the Canes roster while the Islanders are expected to have grinder Cal Clutterbuck back in action.Edge: Even.DefenseThe Islanders, yep the New York Islanders, werethe best defensive team in the NHL (2.33 goals-against average) during the regular season and have continued their superior play in their own end in the playoffs (1.50 GAA). Quick reminder, they held the Penguins' high-powered offense, which includes Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin and Phil Ke sel, to just six goals in four games three of those in Game 1.It'll be interesting to see how the squad does without veteran blueliner Nick Leddy, who is expected to mi s the entire series with a lower-body injury. Thomas Hickey, who was held to 40 games this season due to his own injury i sues, only played in eight games since the middle of December and once sinceMarch 21.For Carolina, their defense was pretty during Aledmys Diaz Jersey the regular season as well finishing with a 2.70 GAA and is now 2.86 in the postseason. The top pairing of Slavin and Hamilton are a plus-7 through seven playoff games, a solid numbering considering they faced the Capitals in the first round.Edge:New YorkIslanders GoaltendingWhat can you say about Robin Lehner? The New York Islanders put their faith in the 2019 Vezina Trophy finalist, and he has paid them back tenfold. While he did split time with Grei s, the playoffs appear to be Lehner's domain. He was brilliant against the Penguins posting a 1.47 GAA and .956 save percentage while stopping 130 of 136 shots. He succe s is the Islanders succe s and the 27-year-old, in his first playoff since 2013, is looking to go far. However, if he does falter, Grei Jake Marisnick Jersey s is more than capable of stepping in.Acro s the way is another journeyman in Petr Mrazek. The former Red Wing and Flyer had a 2.54 GAA and .899 save percentage stopping 170 of 189 shots against the Capitals in seven games. Not great numbers, but he was facing Washington; however, when you consider Lehner saw a similarhigh-offense team, Mrazek will need to do better in the second round if he wants to outlast Lehner.Edge: Islanders.Special teamsSpecial teams were not nece sarily the forte of either club in the regular season, although the Hurricanes did have a top-10 penalty kill. In the first round, both teams power plays struggled at 15.4 percent for New York and 12.0 percent effectivene s for Carolina. But the Islanders have owned the penalty kill posting a 90.9 percent effectivene s when down a man compared to Carolina's 75.Both teams have guys that are creative and can utilize the extra space when on the man advantage along with players, such as Sebastian Aho, who can
