T.M. Selection: Islanders (+1.5) EAST-CONF SEMI-FINAL GAME OF MONTH.
Both teams have been playing great. I didn't expect Tampa to get by Carolina to get this point so easily. However, I also didn't expect the Islanders to roll through the Bruins like they did either. Honestly, it would not be very difficult at all to write a convincing argument for either of these red hot teams to take Game 1. But situationally, I do think it sets up as a very competitive affair. There's been some time off between series, which throws a monkey wrench into chemistry. I believe each will have a "feeling out" period to start this one and in a contest which I see being decided late, or even in extra time, I'm laying the very reasonable price for the extra 1.5 goals of insurance; the play is the Isles on the puck line.
T.M. Prediction: 3-2 Islanders.
