New York Islanders Team News
The Islanders have not gotten off to the best start and sit at the bottom of their conference. This is largely due to their inactivity during the offseason. New coach Lane Lambert is struggling early on, which could result with another disappointing season and failure to reach the postseason.
The Islanders lost their opening game, but then put on two memorable performances against the Ducks and Sharks, winning both games and scoring a total of 12 goals. Then came the harder games and the Islanders got lost. They are currently on a miserable 3-game losing streak, but luckily for them, their crosstown rivals are struggling as well.
New York Rangers Team News
After a more than solid start, the New York Rangers have recently completely lost their footing. Expectations were high before the season, but at the moment the Rangers are on a 3-game losing streak just like the hosts.
The home loss to the Sharks was a wake-up call, but their players didn´t take that defeat seriously. Columbus came to New York with nothing to lose and completely outplayed the star-studded Rangers, who suffered an embarrassing 5:1 home defeat. Things didn´t get any better against the reigning champions, although they showed some signs of improvement by winning a point.
New York Islanders vs. New York Rangers Prediction
The Islanders will most likely face their rivals without one of their best offensive players, Brock Nelson. With both teams in poor form and struggling to find their identity, we expect the under trend to continue tonight.
