The New York Islanders and the New Jersey Devils meet in NHL action from the Prudential Center on Sunday.
The New York Islanders will look to build on their 3-2 win over the Devils on Saturday. Mathew Barzal leads the Islanders in scoring with 24 points including 9 goals and 15 assists while Andres Lee has 19 points with a team-high 12 goals. Nick Leddy also has 17 points with a team-high 16 assists while Brock Nelson has 11 goals this season. As a team, New York is averaging 2.9 goals per game with 30.1 shots per game and a 21.9% success rate on the power play while allowing 2.2 goals per game on 27.4 shots per game with an 82.5% success rate on the penalty kill this season.
The New Jersey Devils will look to rebound from their loss to the Islanders last time out. Pavel Zacha leads the Devils in scoring with 17 points including 7 goals and 10 assists while Myles Wood has a team-high 8 goals and Ty Smith has 10 assists as well for New Jersey this season. As a team, New Jersey is averaging 2.5 goals per game on 29.6 shots per game with a 12.1% success rate on the power play while allowing 3.2 goals per game on 31 shots per game with a 67.1% success rate on the power play this season.
New York is 8-0 in their last 8 games overall and 15-6 in their last 21 Sunday games while the over is 4-1 in their last 5 games against a team with a losing record. New Jersey is 1-8 in their last 9 games overall and 18-38 in their last 56 home games while the under is 11-4 in their last 15 Sunday games. New York is 22-7 in the last 29 meetings between these two teams.
The plus money with the Devils at home is again worth a look, but realistically, I want nothing to do with this Devils team, especially when the New York Islanders are standing on the other side. The Islanders are just red hot right now and while Saturday was a close call, I think Sunday ends up being a lot more comfortable for the Islanders. Give me New York on the puck line in this one.
