Islanders vs Senators Prediction Breakdown 

New York is starting to finally put a couple of wins together, after they really struggled over the last two or three weeks. The Islanders have won two games in a row, but they are only 3-3-2 on the road this year. Ottawa is playing in their first game since coming back from Sweden, where they were able to win both games played. These two teams are pretty similar in a lot of metrics, but the Islanders are the much worse scoring team. New York is only scoring 2.56 goals per game this year, which is towards the bottom of the NHL. I don’t love either side in this game, but I am going to take Ottawa at home with more rest.
