Saturday night, February 23rd, brings you NHL action from British Columbia as the New York Islanders head all the way to the west coast to take on the Vancouver Canucks, live from Rogers Arena.
New York has won six of the last 10 meetings between these two teams, but the home team has won the last three, including an Islanders 5-2 victory back in November.
New York Islanders
The Islanders have only won two out of their last five games, and will try to salvage at least a point on Saturday, as their Western Canada road trip hasn’t gone exactly as planned. With Washington right on their heals, they can’t afford to be dropping too many more points in the near future.
LW Anders Lee is New York’s leading goal scorer on the year with 21, while their overall points leader is C Mathew Barzal, who has 17 goals and 33 assists. Projected starting goalie Robin Lehner comes in with an 18-9-5 record, with a 2.14 GAA and a .928 save percentage.
Injury Report: LW Andrew Ladd and D Thomas Hickey are both listed as “questionable” for Saturday, while G Linus Soderstrom is listed as “out” for the Isles.
The Canucks have only won one out of their last five games, and let a very important point slip away from them in their 3-2 overtime loss to Arizona on Thursday night. They now sit two points off the second Wild Card spot in the West.
Vancouver’s leading scorer is rookie phenom C Elias Pettersson, who has 26 goals and 28 assists on the year. Projected starting goalie Jacob Markstrom comes in with a 22-17-7 record, with a 2.78 GAA and a .911 save percentage.
Injury Report: C Brandon Sutter, RW Jake Virtanen, LW Sven Baertschi, Defensemen Christopher Tanev and Alexander Edler, and G Thatcher Demko are all listed as “out” for Saturday night.

Free New York Islanders vs. Vancouver Canucks NHL Prediction:
The Islanders need a point to at least salvage this road trip, and head back home looking like the division leaders that they are. Because with the Capitals gelling at the moment, any more losses could see the Isles slip right into a Wild Card spot.
The Canucks need a win here at home too, especially since they are so close to a playoff spot they can almost reach out and grab it. The problem is, so is the rest of the Western Conference.
Take the Islanders to win this game on the road and get back to their winning ways.
