The Skylands Kings and Cape Cod Islanders are evenly matched as two teams can be, Skylands has a high octane offense that will challenge the Islanders team defense and goaltending. The Islanders must stay out of the penalty box and play within their systems in order to be successful.  Cape Cod must key on Cory Decosta and Hunter Ledwith as they are those two players have combined for nearly 150 points.  The Islanders need to be sharp as the Kings are excellent in the transition game and will thrive on any turnovers.  The Islanders will need a total team effort in order to advance.
