The Vegas Golden Knights and the New York Islanders meet in NHL action from the UBS Arena on Saturday night. Let’s dive into the odds, injuries, matchup history and make a prediction for this game.
The odds for this game are even with both Vegas and New York listed at -110, with the total for this game set at 5.5 goals.
For Vegas, Mark Stone is out until mid-February with an upper body injury while Zach Whitecloud is out until early February with a lower body injury and Danill Miramanov is out indefinitely with a lower body injury. New York has Noah Dobson is out until early February with a lower body injury while Hudson Fasching is out indefinitely with a lower body injury and Cal Clutterbuck is out indefinitely with an upper body injury.
New York’s 5-2 win back on December 17th, 2022, made it six straight games between these two teams without back-to-back wins.
Vegas is 1-5 in their last 6 road games and 1-6 in their last 7 games overall while the under is 3-0-1 in their last 4 games played on no rest. New York is 7-3 in their last 10 games against the Pacific and 1-6 in their last 7 games overall while the under is 4-0 in their last 4 games against the Western Conference.
I’m sticking with the under here. Both teams have been struggling to find the back of the net in recent games and I wouldn’t be surprised if we saw more of the same in this game in a game that feels like a first to 3 wins if we even make it that high. Give me the under here.
