New York Islanders
The Islanders are catching fire at the perfect time and picking up some much-needed road wins. New York is 4-1 during its current seven-game road trip, and it’s been the defense that’s been leading the way.
The Isles have only allowed seven goals over their last five games and will look for the same result against the lowly Winnipeg Jets.
New York has dominated the Western Conference all season long, coming into this game with an 18-5-2 record against the West. The Isles are also an incredible 13-2-1 as a favorite versus the West, another stat that bodes well for them in this one.
New York is a top-10 team offensively and defensively, and the Isles will be sure to keep that going as they continue to nip at the heels of the rest of the congested Eastern Conference.
Despite their 75 points, the Islanders are still 6th in the East, and winning the easier games on the schedule is imperative for them to make a strong run at the postseason.
The Winnipeg Jets continue to fade into irrelevance, holding down one of the worst records in the Western Conference. Aside from All-Star forward Blake Wheeler, the Jets haven’t had anything to cheer for this season.
Injuries to the goaltenders have also made this season one to forget, and we’ll see how much effort they’ll put into this contest.
Winnipeg is allowing 2.95 goals per game, ranking 25th in goals allowed, 27th on the penalty kill and 29th in penalty minutes.
Even worse, the Jets have allowed an astonishing 24 goals in their last five home games.
It’s impossible to win when your team is allowing nearly five goals per game. Ondrej Pavelec is expected to get the start in this game, but it doesn’t really matter who’s in net for Winnipeg because none of their goalies can stop the puck at the moment.
