The New York Islanders showed their resiliency by staging consecutive third-period rallies en route to securing three of a possible four points in the first two contests of their three-game homestand. The Islanders aim to conclude the stretch by beating the Los Angeles Kings for the fifth straight time at home on Thursday in Brooklyn, N.Y.
Anthony Beauvillier set up Jordan Eberle’s tally late in the second period of New York’s 4-3 overtime loss versus Vancouver on Saturday afternoon before scoring on a breakaway 2:52 into overtime to cap a two-goal performance in a 4-3 win over Dallas on Tuesday.
Beauvillier has nine points (five goals, four assists) in his last seven contests for the Islanders, who improved to 5-0-3 at Barclays Center this season and 10-0-3 in the last 13 in the building since Jan. 12, 2019.
Stat to know: The Kings have lost 16 of 22 meetings against Eastern Conference foes, including eight of 11 versus Metropolitan Division adversaries.
If you are thinking of placing a betting prediction on this match, continue reading for our detailed summary and our expert prediction at the end.
Los Angeles Kings
Los Angeles is headed in the wrong direction with seven losses in its last eight games (1-6-1), with its latest setback on Tuesday coming after it surrendered three goals to Washington superstar Alex Ovechkin in a 4:24 stretch late in the third period.
Lost in Ovechkin’s heroics of Los Angeles’ 4-2 loss was Jeff Carter’s first multi-goal performance since he tallied twice in a 5-3 setback to Vancouver on Oct. 30. Drew Doughty set up Carter’s go-ahead goal on Tuesday to move past Rob Blake for sole possession of the most points by a Kings defenseman with 495.
Jon Quick should be the starting goalie in the game tonight. His stats up to this point on the season are: 11-20-3 W-L | 3.02 GAA | 0.895 SV% | 0 SO
New York Islanders
Brock Nelson capped a two-point performance by scoring with 26 seconds remaining in the third period against the Canucks before setting up Beauvillier’s overtime tally three nights later to boost his point total to 10 (six goals, four assists) in his last eight games.
Nelson, who leads the team with 21 goals, set up Derick Brassard’s first-period tally before the Kings scored four straight in a 4-1 win on Nov. 27. Jordan Eberle has 10 points (five goals, five assists) in his past 10 contests and joins Nelson, Beauvillier, Mathew Barzal and defenseman Ryan Pulock with three-game point streaks.
Semyon Varlamov should be the starting goalie in the game tonight. His stats up to this point on the season are: 16-8-4 W-L | 2.6 GAA | 0.915 SV% | 2 SO

Free Los Angeles Kings vs. New York Islanders NHL Prediction:
I think the best play here is the under. It looks to be a favorable matchup for the Islanders on paper but the odds aren’t very rewarding in that case. The Kings are great at holding teams to low scoring games and I think this game could be another one of those.
