NYI -250 O/U 5.5
The New York Islanders (27 - 12 - 4) are on the road this week to try to take out the New York Rangers (21 - 19 - 4). The New York Rangers will be hosting this game at the Madison Square Garden in New York, NY. The Rangers are heading home after dropping a road game against St Louis, 5 - 2. The New York Islanders will be taking the ice having won two out of their last three games.
The New York Islanders will be heading to the ice with a team that has struggled to coalesce around an identity this season. The Islanders come into this matchup averaging 2.77 goals per game while surrendering 2.56 goals to opposing squads. The New York Islanders will hope to continue their dominance against the Rangers as they have gone 13 - 3 over their past 16 games. The Islanders are placed on offense by the play of captain Mathew Barzal (17 goals, 20 assists) and he will be our player to highlight.
The New York Rangers are an exciting team on both ends of the ice. The Rangers are scoring 3.32 goals per outing with Artemi Panarin (24 goals, 38 assists) leading the charge. Panarin has been electric this season, and he'll be poised to cut through the Islander defense. The Rangers will hope to have some stability in their net, as well. The Rangers have juggled between three different goalies throughout the season.
The Islanders are really playing good on the year and that will definitely show up against the very weak Red Wings team. Look for the Islanders offense to come into the game here and play great in the game and really get the puck past the Red Wings defense quite a bit for some goals, but the Islanders defense remains stoic and keeps the Red Wings out of the game. Final Score Prediction, New York Islanders win on the under 4-0.
