The New York Islanders and the New York Rangers meet in NHL action from Madison Square Garden on Tuesday night.

The New York Islanders will look to build on their 4-3 OT win over Calgary in their last game. Going into Monday’s game, Brock Nelson leads the Islanders in scoring with 13 points including 5 goals and 8 assists while Mathew Barzal has a team-high 11 assists and Anders Lee also has 12 points with a team-high 6 goals and 6 assists. Ilya Sorokin has gone 5-3 with a 2.03 GAA and a .933 save percentage while Semyon Varlamov is 2-2 with a 2.90 GAA and a .909 save percentage so far this season.

The New York Rangers will try to rebound from back-to-back losses after a 3-2 OT loss to the Red Wings last time out. Artemi Panarin has a team-high 17 points with 5 goals and a team-high 12 assists while Mika Zibanejad has 15 points with a team-high 7 goals and 8 assists. Adam Fox has 11 points with 8 assists while Chris Kreider has 10 points with 6 assists. Igor Shesterkin has gone 6-1-2 with a 2.41 GAA and a .916 save percentage while Jaroslav Halak is 0-3-1 with a 3.48 GAA and an .882 save percentage so far this season.

The Islanders are 4-1 in their last 5 division games and 4-1 in their last 5 Tuesday games while the under is 4-0 in their last 4 games against a team with a losing record. The Rangers are 1-5 in their last 6 home games and 1-5 in their last 6 home games and 2-8 in their last 10 games against the Eastern Conference while the under is 5-1 in their last 6 home games.

I get the case to be made either way here, but I’m looking at the under here. These two teams simply do not like each other at all, and this has been a true to form rivalry where the hits are harder and the goals come at a premium. I think this game is the first to 3 wins, so give me the under.
