The Islanders return one of the hottest goaltenders in the league in net and ride a 4-game win streak vs. the Rangers on Thursday. NYI suffered a defeat their last time out but won 6 games prior. Comparitively, the Rangers have lost 7 of the last 9.
New York Islanders
New York is getting just enough offense as they’ve posted wins in 6 of their last 7 games. Over that span, the Islanders have eclipsed three goals scored just twice. Thursday could be a nice bounce back game vs. the Rangers 27th D in goals against that is also 26th in SOG allowed.
The Islanders have a huge advantage in net with a -135 if Robin Lehner gets the start. The NYI goaltender sat out last game vs. Carolina but has posted wins in his last 7 starts. Over that span, Lehner has given up just 8 total goals.
New York Rangers
The big question for Thursday is where the Rangers find any offense? NYR is 28th in goals scored and 30th in SOG up against arguably the NHL’s best goalie over the last month. The Rangers have been held to 2 goals or less in five straight games.
If New York Rangers can’t muster much offense, it’s going to be up to Henrik Lundqvist to keep the Islanders offense at bay. The veteran goaltender is 2-2-4 over his last 8, but has allowed 11 goals in his last two outings.

Free New York Islanders vs. New York Rangers NHL Prediction:
There’s incredible value on the Islanders on Thursday at MSG where they’ve dominated lately. With Lehner in net, the puck line is a solid play. This game feels a bit like a trap with just a -135 ML but at the very least it should be a low scoring affair. Even so, backing Lehner and the Islanders right now is a no-brainer.
