The second outing of a home-and-home set between the New York Rangers (6th in Metropolitan Division) and the Islanders (4th in Metropolitan) sees both teams square off against each other in Brooklyn, with the Isles having won the first contest in Manhattan…

Rangers Get Edged In Manhattan

The New York Rangers (17-19-7) started their home-and-home set with the New York Islanders, registering their fifth consecutive defeat (0-5-0) following a 4-3 decision at Madison Square Garden on Thursday. Ryan Strome (6 goals, 12 points this year), Kevin Shattenkirk (2 goals, 11 points) and Jesper Fast (7 goals, 16 points) all got on the scoreboard, as the Blueshirts tied the game twice following their first-period opener before the Isles tallied on their only shot of the final third with 1:26 left on the clock. The Rangers are 6th in the Metropolitan Division with 41 points from 43 fixtures, trailing a playoff place in the East by 11 points.

Goalie Henrik Lundqvist made 16 saves against the Islanders, taking his current performance status to 12-12-7 for the rolling year with a 3.08 GAA and a .907 save percentage. He has recorded a 30-21-7 career total versus the Isles with a 2.41 GAA and a .915 save percentage. The Rangers, meanwhile, are scoring the 5th lowest number of goals per game thus far this season (2.65), while conceding the 5th highest amount on the defensive end (3.42). They are 15th in power play (19.7%) and 3rd from the bottom in penalty kill (74.8%).

Isles Win Battle Of New York

The New York Islanders (24-14-4) won for the seventh time in their last eight contests (7-1-0) after beating the New York Rangers with a count of 4-3 at Madison Square Garden on Thursday. Josh Bailey (9 goals, 32 points this year) buried the winner, scoring on the only shot of the Isles in the third period with less than a minute-and-a-half remaining. Mathew Barzal (13 goals, 41 points), Jordan Eberle (9 goals, 19 points) and Anders Lee (16 goals, 33 points) also lit the lamp for the Islanders, who are sitting 4th in the Metropolitan Division with 52 points from 42 outings, currently holding the 1st Wild Card of the Eastern Conference.

Goalie Robin Lehner extended his winning streak to eight contests following a 27-save performance. He is 12-6-3 for the season with a 2.22 GAA and a .926 save percentage, and has posted a 3-5-2 previous record against the Rangers with a 3.76 GAA and a .893 save percentage. The Islanders, meanwhile, are netting the 13th highest quantity of goals per game (3.00), while giving up the 4th lowest amount in their defensive zone (2.64). They are 22nd in power play (16.9%) and 25th in penalty kill (77.2%).

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

Following Thursday’s narrow 4-3 victory at Madison Square Garden, the Islanders have improved to a 13-2-0 record in their last 15 meetings with the Rangers and stand an excellent chance of adding another triumph to that tally when both are facing off against each other in a Saturday matinee. The Rangers have dropped 21 of their last 26 road outings versus sides with a winning home record and are 0-7 on their past seven trips to see off the Isles, who, on the other, have already collected six victories in their last seven occasions playing the second contest of a home-and-home set.

Prediction: New York Islanders

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

When playing at the Islanders, both sides have kept things quite low-scoring lately, going under the total in 10 of the past 14 meetings. Their last matchup in Manhattan amassed to seven strikes, but do consider banking on a tighter affair this time around. Seven of the past 10 home fixtures of the Islanders have already gone below the six-goal barrier, with the team notching up 11 low-scoring contests in the past 15 home games versus sides with a poor road record.

Prediction: Under 6
