The Detroit Red Wings and the New York Islanders meet in NHL action from the UBS Arena on Friday night. Let’s dive into the odds, injuries, matchup history and make a prediction for this game.


The Islanders are listed as -160 home favorites while Detroit is a +140 road underdog with a total set at 5.5 goals.


For Detroit, Filip Zadina is out until early February with a lower body injury. For the Islanders, Noah Dobson is questionable with an undisclosed injury while Hudson Fasching, Cal Clutterbuck and Oliver Wahlstrom are all out indefinitely.

Matchup History

Detroit’s 3-0 win over the Islanders back on November 5th, 2022, made it 3 wins in the last 4 meetings between these two teams.


Detroit is 32-90 in their last 122 road games and 1-5 in their last 6 games against the Eastern Conference while the under is 6-1 in their last 7 games in a three game in four night situation. New York is 1-10 in their last 11 games overall and 1-5 in their last 6 home games while the under is 4-1-1 in their last 6 games against a team with a losing record.


I’ll side with the under in this one. Detroit had a lot of offensive success against Montreal on Thursday, but this is a Red Wings team that plays a lot of low-scoring games in these compacted schedule spots. On the other side, the Islanders have struggled to score over the course of this losing streak and I think this is a first to 3 win so give me the under here.
