The New Jersey Devils need a win after losing nine of their last 11 games. The New Jersey Devils are averaging 2.4 goals per game and are scoring on 12.9 percent of their power play opportunities.

Defensively, the New Jersey Devils are allowing three goals per game and are killing 65.1 percent of their opponents power plays. Mackenzie Blackwood has allowed 35 goals on 366 shots faced and Scott Wedgewood has allowed 19 goals on 211 shots.
The New York Islanders look to build on their six game winning streak. The New York Islanders are averaging 2.9 goals per game and are scoring on 22.7 percent of their power play opportunities.

The Devils are 5-2 in their last 7 road games and 1-6 in their last 7 overall. The Islanders are 5-0 in their last 5 home games and 6-0 in their last 6 overall. The over is 6-2 in Devils last 8 road games. The over is 8-2-1 in Islanders last 11 home games. The Devils are 2-11 in the last 13 meetings in New York and 7-20 in the last 27 meetings.
The New Jersey Devils just can't figure things out when it comes to putting together 60 minutes of hockey and finding ways to win. The Devils are getting worse offensively and they've provided no value in the underdog role. The New York Islanders are piling up the points led by an elite defense and great coaching, and they've been dominant in the home favorite role dating back to last season. I'm not looking to step in front of the Islanders, a team I've backed a lot over the last two years. Give me the Islanders and the PL for max betting value.
