The New York Islanders and Ottawa Senators meet Monday night in NHL action from the Canadian Tire Center.
The New York Islanders will look to build on a 4-3 win against the Columbus Blue Jackets last time out. Brock Nelson leads the Islanders in scoring with 17 points, including 8 goals and 9 assists, while Mathew Barzal has 16 assists and Anders Lee also has 15 points with 8 goals and 7 assists. Ilya Sorokin has gone 7-4 with a 2.17 GAA and a .932 save percentage, while Semyon Varlamov is 3-2 with a 2.93 GAA and a .913 save percentage through time of this season.
The Ottawa Senators will look to build on a 3-1 win over Philadelphia in their last game. Brady Tkachuk leads the Sens in scoring with 19 points on 6 goals and 13 assists, while Claude Giroux has 14 points on 7 goals and 7 assists. Tim Stutzle, Alex DeBrincat and Drake Batherson each have 13 points, with Stutzle scoring 5 goals and 8 assists, while DeBrincat and Batherson each have 4 goals and 9 assists. Anton Forsberg has gone 3-6-1 with a 3.60 GAA and .899 save percentage for Ottawa so far this season.
New York is 8-2 in their last 10 games overall and 4-1 in their last 5 road games while the over is 24-9-2 in their last 35 games played on 1 day rest . Ottawa is 0-4 in their last 4 home games and 1-7 in their last 8 games overall while the under is 4-1-1 in their last 6 Monday games.
I understand the case is made for either side in this game, but I’m on the fence here. Ottawa has been playing their best hockey at home since the beginning, but the regression monster has hit Ottawa hard lately and I don’t see that changing anytime soon. The Islanders play a tough style, which can be really frustrating when you’re trying to get out of a slump the way the Senators need to. I think this is just one of those games where the Islanders go on the road and get a win, so give me New York here.
