The New York Islanders and New York Rangers meet in NHL action from Madison Square Garden on Tuesday night.
The New York Islanders will look to build on their 4-3 win against Calgary in their last game. In Monday’s game, Brock Nelson leads the Islanders in scoring with 13 points, including 5 goals and 8 assists, while Mathew Barzal has 11 assists and Anders Lee also has 12 points with 6 goals and 6 assists. Ilya Sorokin has gone 5-3 with a 2.03 GAA and a .933 save percentage, while Semyon Varlamov is 2-2 with a 2.90 GAA and a .909 save percentage through time of this season.
The New York Rangers will look to bounce back from back-to-back losses after a 3-2 loss against the Red Wings last time out. Artemi Panarin has 17 points with 5 goals and 12 assists, while Mika Zibanejad has 15 points with 7 goals and 8 assists. Adam Fox has 11 points with 8 assists while Chris Kreider has 10 points with 6 assists. Igor Shesterkin has gone 6-1-2 with a 2.41 GAA and a .916 save percentage, while Jaroslav Halak is 0-3-1 with a 3.48 GAA and a .916 save percentage .882 so far this season.
Islanders are 4-1 in their last 5 division games and 4-1 in their last 5 Tuesday games while the under is 4-0 in their last 4 games against a losing team. Rangers are 1-5 in their last 6 home games and 1-5 in their last 6 home games and 2-8 in their last 10 games vs. Eastern Conference while the under is 5 -1 in their last 6 home games.
I understand the case is made either way here, but I’m looking at the one below. These two teams just don’t like each other at all, and this has been a true rivalry where hits are harder and goals are at a premium. I think this game is the first to 3 wins so give me the bottom.
