N.Y. Islanders 3 @ Carolina 6 | 10/14 | 11:00 PM UTC
ANALYSIS: Frederik Anderson will be starting in net for the Canes as they had a bit of an overhaul this offseason, at least with goalies. Both these teams are much better at home and there has been a positive trend with home teams in their openers so far this season. The Canes won all three games last season including two at home, and they swept the Islanders in the playoffs in 2019, so the Canes have won 8 straight now in this series. The Canes were 20-3-5 at home last season while the Islanders were 11-13-4 on the road, and that was without fans.
