NHL betting tips from Bettingpro.com's expert, including the best bets from Carolina Hurricanes at New York Islanders and Colorado Avalanche at San Jose Sharks.

Carolina Hurricanes at New York Islanders (20:00 BST) - Eastern Conference Second Round Game 2


The Carolina Hurricanes are aiming to make it two wins in a row over the New York Islanders in their Eastern Conference semi-final duel. Rod Brind'Amour’s boys drew first blood in the best-of-seven series after winning Friday’s opener 1-0 in overtime at the Barclays Centre. Jordan Staal scored 4:04 into the extra period to seal the win for Carolina, who needed two overtimes to beat defending Stanley Cup champions Washington Capitals in their Game 7 duel in the first round two nights earlier. Nino Niederreiter and Brett Pesce assisted Staal as they handed the Islanders their first defeat in the ongoing play-offs. Petr Mrazek made 31 saves to register his fifth career shutout in the play-offs. Robin Lehner also stopped 31 shots for the Islanders, who swept the Pittsburgh Penguins in the first round. The Hurricanes won despite playing without injured regulars Andrei Svechnikov, Micheal Ferland and Jordan Martinook. Islanders top scorer Jordan Eberle, who tallied four goals and two assists against the Penguins, are hoping to do better in Game 2. We expect the Islanders to bounce back in this contest.

Colorado Avalanche at San Jose Sharks (00:30 BST on Monday) - Western Conference Second Round Game 2


The San Jose Sharks are targeting another easy win over the Colorado Avalanche in Game 2 of their Western Conference semi-final duel. The Sharks rolled past the Avalanche 5-2 at home on Friday to take the lead in their best-of-seven series. Brent Burns had a goal and three assists while Joe Thornton tallied a goal and an assist to lead San Jose. Gustav Nyquist, Kevin Labanc and Timo Meier also scored for the Sharks, who trailed 2-1 midway through the second period before scoring three goals to take a 4-2 cushion into the final period. Martin Jones made 26 saves as the Sharks extended their winning run to four games after winning their last three encounters against the Vegas Golden Knights in the first round. Gabriel Bourque and Colin Wilson were the goal scorers for the wildcard Avalanche, who were aiming for another upset win after booting out the top-ranked Calgary Flames in the first round. The Sharks have the momentum that’s why we are backing them to pick up their second win in the series.
