New York Islanders
The New York Islanders have struggled as of late with only 4 wins out of their last 10 games, going (4-4-2). However, they are coming off a great showing against the New Jersey Devils with a 5-1 win. Barzal, Komarov, and Nelson had some great point production which is an optimistic sign for this matchup.
The New York Islanders will have to pick up their scoring ability in this game as Boston has scored 3 or more in their last 7. They have had a chronic problem in the scoring department this season and as a result they are lagging behind every team but two in the East in goals for.
Hopefully for the Islanders, they can use the momentum from their 5-1 win over the Devils in their last game. The Islanders went 1-1 with New Jersey in their back to back games, not exactly a shining endorsement as the Devils are positioned in second last in the East.
The Bruins on the other hand have tallied 6 wins in their last 10, going (6-3-1). Furthermore, the Bruins have been outscoring their matchups by a good margin when they win, and when they lose, the scoresheets are pretty close.
Boston is coming off a heartbreaking loss against the Rangers in a game with 7 combined goals in the third period. However, Boston out shot their competition. I do not see this loss as a big knock against the Bruins.
Hopefully for Boston they can shake off that last game, and continue on performing as they have this past month.

Free New York Islanders vs. Boston Bruins NHL Prediction:
With the Islanders coming off a win and the Bruins coming off a loss, there may be an opportunity for an upset here, but Boston has looked too strong this past month to bet against them.
Moreover, the Bruins have been playing superb hockey when at home, winning seven of their last 9 games at TD Garden. In their last seven games, the Bruins have scored at least 3 goals in each game. Although they’re up against a team who is statistically good defensively, I expect this trend to continue going into this game.
4* Free NHL Betting Pick: Boston Bruins Moneyline (-145)
The Bruins have been a far more consistent team as of late, and they will have far more momentum than the hot and cold Islanders. Along with this, the Islanders will have trouble keeping up the Bruins recent goal production.
Because of this, I’m taking Boston.
