The New York Islanders and Columbus Blue Jackets face off on Friday in an NHL showdown at Nationwide Arena. When these two teams faced off on the 12th it was the Islanders that won 3-2 in overtime.
The Islanders sit with a 13-8-0 record and away from home they have gone 6-5-0. On Wednesday against the Edmonton Oilers, the defense was elite giving up zero goals, and that led to the victory. Jean-Gabriel Pageau had a solid game finishing with two goals. The Islanders are averaging 3.29 goals per game while their defense is giving up 2.62 goals per game. The offense is pretty average, but the defense has been good and is ranked sixth-best in the NHL. Mathew Barzal has been the top point-getter for the Islanders and he sits with two goals and 21 assists.
On the other side of this matchup is the Blue Jackets who sit with a 7-11-1 record and at home they have a 6-7-0 record. In the last game against the Blue Jackets the offense only managed one goal, and they lost by two. The Blue Jackets are averaging 2.95 goals per game while their defense is giving up 4.26 goals per game. The offense is ranked 21st while the defense is ranked 32nd. Johnny Gaudreau has been the top player for the Blue Jackets scoring seven goals and adding 11 assists.
The Islanders are 5-1 in their last six games on Friday. The over is 4-0 in the Blue Jackets last four games against the Metro. The over is 7-1 in the Blue Jackets last eight games against the Western Conference. The over is 12-3 in the Islanders last 15 road games against a team with a losing home record.
The Blue Jackets offense is averaging only 2.95 goals per game, and they are going to struggle to score against the Islanders good defense. I don’t see the Blue Jackets scoring more than a goal, and that is going to be the difference here. Back the Islanders on the money line. This is one of the top plays on the entire board for Friday.
