N.Y. Islanders 1 @ Pittsburgh 2 | 05/18 | 11:30 PM UTC

Pittsburgh -135

WIN

ANALYSIS: Had a 3-0 night Monday to get back above +3000 on this NHL season -- let's keep it going. It's desperation time for the Penguins after losing Game 1 at home 4-3 in overtime to the Isles. That was a surprise only because the Pens were so good at home during the regular season and the Isles not very good away from home. New York had been 0-4 in Pittsburgh in 2021. I highly doubt the Isles steal another one. The Penguins played without Russian star Evgeni Malkin and there's a solid chance he returns Tuesday.
