Islanders Preview

The New York Islanders are 23-22-5 this season after they lost to the Ottawa Senators by a score of 2-1 in their last game. New York was out shot by a total of 38-36 and went 0-3 on the power play in the loss.

Brock Nelson has led the Islanders this season with 18 goals, 25 assists, and 142 shots on goal this season. The projected starting goalie for New York is Ilya Sorokin, who is 15-16-4 this season with a 2.44 goals against average and a .922 save percentage.


Detroit is 12-30 in their last 42 Friday games and 1-5 in their last 6 games against the Metropolitan. The over is 6-2 in Detroit’s last 8 road games. New York is 1-5 in their last 6 home games and 1-10 in their last 11 games. The under is 8-2 in New York’s last 11 games. The home team is 6-0 in these two teams last 6 head to head meetings.


Detroit comes into this game on the second game of a back to back, but they have won three of their last four games. New York has really struggled in recent games and hasn’t scored more than two goals in five straight games. The Islanders have lost 10 of their last 11 games and lost to Detroit in their last meeting by a score of 3-0. I like the Red Wings on the road in this matchup.
