Boston Bruins Form


Boston overcame a Game 1 defeat to Washington to win four straight games in round one.

They have found things much more difficult in round two.

The Bruins made a winning start to this series with a 5-2 victory and quickly bounced back from a 4-3 overtime defeat in Game 2.

Boston restored their lead with an overtime win of their own in Game 3 but it has been downhill since that 2-1 victory.

They were thrashed 4-1 in Uniondale as New York levelled up the series.

The Bruins then fell to a 5-4 defeat at home in Game 5 which means one more loss will end their season.

Brandon Carlo remains day-to-day due to an undisclosed issue.

Curtis Lazar (lower body), Kevan Miller and Jakyb Zboril (both upper body) are also day-to-day.

There is no chance of Steven Kampfer (hand), Ondrej Kase (upper body) or John Moore (hip) playing in this must win game.

New York Islanders Form


New York have sprung one postseason surprise already and are threatening to cause another.

The Islanders made a 1-2 start to the series with Pittsburgh but then went on a run of three straight wins to dump out the Penguins.

Now there is a sense of déjà vu because they started the series with Boston 1-2 and are now on a streak.

New York bounced back from a 5-2 defeat in Game 1 with a 4-3 overtime success, but they were brought back down to Earth with a 2-1 OT loss.

The Islanders responded brilliantly though, thrashing Boston 4-1 in Game 4 to level the series.

They then made it back-to-back victories by holding on for a 5-4 victory in Game 5.

One more win will see them through but they may have to get it without Michael Dal Colle (undisclosed) and Oliver Wahlstrom (lower body).

Anders Lee (knee) and Johnny Boychuk (eye) will definitely sit this one out.
