In the next round of the NHL regular season, the New York Rangers will host the Islanders at Madison Square Garden, New York. In our prediction, we will try to give a detailed answer to the question of who will be better in this contest?
New York Rangers
The Rangers won two matches in their arena against Colorado (5: 3) and New Jersey (6: 3), but away they could not do anything about the offence and defence of St. Louis, losing, in the end of the regular time with a score of 2: 5. Only Heatley and Howden were able to score in that match.
In general, this defeat did not affect the tournament position of the team. New York, with 46 points, occupies the 11th line of the Eastern Conference and still retains good chances of reaching the playoffs this season.
New York Islanders
The Islanders had an excellent past three meetings and earned five points in them. In the last match, they could again get two points but still lost in overtime to Boston with a score of 2: 3. Recall that previously the team won the game with Colorado (1: 0) and New Jersey (4: 3 OT).
If we talk about the guest games of the Islanders, then they conduct them well and lost in the regulation only seven times in 21 meetings. On average, on the road ice men of Barry Trotz score about two to three goals per game.
New York Rangers vs New York Islanders prediction
The Islanders look good in guest matches and quite rarely leave the ice without points. The Rangers play unstable and usually after two consecutive victories suffer several defeats. We believe that the Islanders have every chance to get success in the upcoming match.
