The Pittsburgh Penguins and New York Islanders meet Saturday in NHL action at the Nassau Coliseum.
The Pittsburgh Penguins need a win after losing three of their last four games. The Pittsburgh Penguins are averaging 2.8 goals per game and are scoring on 13.5 percent of their power play opportunities. Sidney Crosby leads Pittsburgh with four goals, Bryan Rust has five assists and Jake Guentzel has 27 shots on goal. Defensively, the Pittsburgh Penguins are allowing 3.7 goals per game and are killing 74.3 percent of their opponents power plays. Tristan Jarry has allowed 21 goals on 149 shots and Casey DeSmith has allowed 14 goals on 119 shots.
The New York Islanders look for a win to snap a five-game losing streak. The New York Islanders are averaging 2.1 goals per game and are scoring on 15.8 percent of their power play opportunities. Mathew Barzal leads New York with four goals, Noah Dobson has four assists and Anders Lee has 31 shots on goal. Defensively, the New York Islanders are allowing 2.7 goals per game and are killing 77.8 percent of their opponents power plays. Semyon Varlamov has given up 12 goals on 158 shots faced and Ilya Sorokin has allowed 11 goals on 85 shots.
The Penguins are 1-7 in their last 8 road games. The Islanders are 3-11 in their last 14 Saturday games and 0-5 in their last 5 overall. The under is 4-1 in Penguins last 5 overall. The under is 9-2-1 in Islanders last 12 overall. The Penguins are 2-5 in the last 7 meetings in New York and 1-6 in the last 7 meetings. The road team is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.
Both of these teams are better than what they've shown up to this point and the couple of days off for both sides should help them clear their heads. While the Penguins have played better hockey overall this season, the New York Islanders have given them fits in recent meetings, and I trust New York's coaching staff where they won't let this losing streak get completely out of hand. The Islanders are due for a bounce back performance. I'll lay the cheap price.
