For the first time since November, the two New York City teams went head-to-head. Both teams are playing really well lately, so it will be interesting to see which team comes out on top here. Rangers won that first game. However, the Islanders roster has been decimated by COVID protocols and I’m sure they want another crack at NYG now that they’re healthy. Here are the odds for the match in tonight’s state, with the help of WynnBET Sportsbook.
Looks like the Islanders are finally getting their scores back thanks to a recent surge from Anders Lee. The team captain had eight goals and one assist in the Islanders’ previous five games combined. It’s no surprise that The Islanders are leading 3-1 in that span. But Lee isn’t the only offensive player on the Islanders to be highly rated lately. As a team, the Isles have scored a total of 22 goals in their most recent match. If the NYI can keep scoring like this, they could become a very dangerous team. However, they are still the 24th highest scoring team in the NHL, averaging 2.7 GPG.
So can Rangers slow this attack? Well, they definitely have a goalkeeper who does that at Igor Shesterkin. Igor is 29-7 with GAA of 2.07 and SV% of 0.929. Rangers’ defense was also quick and impressive and finished third in the GAA as a team.
I think even though the Isles are skating well right now, Rangers and Shersterkin’s defense is more than good enough to win here.
Pick: Rangers -145 to win
