Saturday, December 1st brings exciting NHL action your way live from the Nassau Coliseum on Long Island, as the Columbus Blue Jackets travel to face off against the New York Islanders in a matchup of two very good hockey teams. Both teams were in action Thursday night when the Blue Jackets beat the Wild 4-2, and the Islanders fell to the Bruins 2-1.
Columbus Blue Jackets
Columbus comes into this game winners of three out of their last four games, and they have scored a minimum of four goals in each of those wins. This will be a quick one game road trip before they head back home to take on Calgary on Tuesday. The Blue Jackets hold a 8-4-1 record in road games this year.
The Jackets are averaging 3.52 goals per game on 32.72 shots per night. Over their last 10 meetings with the Islanders, they have averaged 4.10 goals and their Power Play is sitting at a healthy 33.33% over a 6-3-1 record. Number one goalie Sergei Bobrovsky comes into Saturday with a 10-7 record, a 2.70 GAA and a save percentage of .912.
RW Anthony Duclair is listed as “questionable” for this game.
New York Islanders
The Islanders come into this meeting in a bit of a slump. Losers of three out of their last five games, including back to back losses where they could only score one goal in each game. This is a return to home ice for the Isles, where they are 6-3-2, but it’s not going to be easy as they have the Jets following this game with the Blue Jackets.
Columbus seems to have New York’s number of late, as the Islanders have only been able to score an average of 2.40 goals per game in these two teams last 10 meetings. Their Penalty Kill hasn’t been that great against the Jackets either at 66.67%. Projected starting goalie Thomas Greiss has an 8-4-1 record with a 2.45 GAA and a .925 save percentage.
The Islanders have no injuries to report for this game.
