The NHL is back in action on Friday as the New York Islanders will clash with the New Jersey Devils at the Prudential Park in Newark, New Jersey. The Islanders are heading into this game after a 5-0 away defeat at the Rangers. On the other side, the Devils were dominant at home as they beat the Canadiens with a score of 5-2.
New York Islanders Form
The Islanders had a very bad game against the Rangers. This defeat was a surprise to many as the Islanders had a great record against the Rangers have won the last 8 encounters with them. It seems that the offence was a big problem in their last game as they could not score at all. It will be hard for them as the Devils are a strong defensive team.
On the offensive side of the game, the Islanders are placed on the 15th spot in the league in scoring, putting in an average of 3.15 goals per game.
On the defensive side of the ice, they are placed on the 13th place in the league as they have been conceding an average of 2.95 goals per game.
New Jersey Devils Form
The Devils had a tough time in the last month. However, it seems that they are on the right track to get in a solid for as they have won 3 of their last 5 games. They have been playing well at home and they showed that in the last game against the Canadiens as they beat them with a score of 5-2. They have a great chance to win against a struggling Islanders team that has a bad record at the Prudential Park.
On the offensive side of the game, the Devils are placed on the 18th spot in the league, putting in an average of goals per game.
On the defensive side of the game, they are placed on the 20th spot in the league, as they have been conceding 3.15 goals per game.
The Islanders have been struggling lately and they will need to play at their best if they want to get something out of this game. On the other side, the Devils also had their fair share of struggles in the away games. However, at home they are dominant and they are facing an Islanders team that is not playing well at the moment. I expect a dominant Devils win in this game.
