Miles Wood leads New Jersey with three goals, Jack Hughes has four assists and Nikita Gusev has 10 shots on goal.

The Devils are 20-45 in their last 65 Thursday games. The Islanders are 2-5 in their last 7 Thursday games and 10-3 in their last 13 games playing on 2 days rest. The under is 10-4 in Devils last 14 overall. The under is 5-0-1 in Islanders last 6 overall. The Devils are 2-10 in the last 12 meetings in New York and 8-21 in the last 29 meetings.

The New Jersey Devils are off to a strong start and could be a team to watch this season if it continues. However, the New York Islanders have become one of my favorite teams to back in this sport, as you just know what you're getting on a nightly basis in their coaching and defensive effort. The Islanders compete each time they take the ice and they're producing positive results. The Islanders have also owned the Devils over the years. I won't take the PL here because of the Islanders subpar offense, but I still like them to squeeze out a victory.
