Islanders vs Rangers: prediction for the NHL game
The Islanders and the Rangers lock horns in the New York derby in the National Hockey League on November 25. We made predictions for this fixture, which you can find below.
New York Islanders
The Islanders are 14th in the East following their extremely long away series, where they struggles to earn points, and a poor performance in the recent home games. The team is in terrible form and struggle to find their footing. In the last two matches, the Islanders lost to Calgary (2:5), and then were crushed by Toronto (0:3). On average, Barry Trotz's charges concede three and score two goals per game.
New York Rangers
The Rangers, on the other hand, are doing well. They are 5th in the East and recently they had a winning streak of four games. In the last two matches, the Rangers lost to Toronto (1:2) and they defeated Buffalo (5:4). Gerard Gallant's men lost only three away games in regulation this season. The Rangers usually don't have any problems against the outsiders, but they won only one game with a margin of more thna two goals.
In the last 4 games, the Rangers scored fewer than 3 goals.
In 2 out of 4 games, the Islanders scored in the first period.
The Islanders must pull themselves together and deliver a successful performance. The Rangers are a comfortable opponents for them in terms of style, and the Islanders were successful in the most recent head-to-head games. We believe that the nominal hosts can snatch a win here.
Our prediction - Asian handicap (0) to Islanders
