The San Jose Sharks are heading to the Brookly to take on the New York Islanders at the Barclays Center this Tuesday. Luckily for the Sharks, they will not have to travel far as they just played the Rangers on Monday night.
The bad news is obviously they will have very little rest.
The Islanders just notched their first win of the 2016 season on Sunday in an overtime battle with the Ducks. They were able to prevail 3-2 in that one but may face an even tougher test on Tuesday.
San Jose Sharks
The Sharks started their season hot, winning their season opener against the Kings then notching a tough road win against the Blue Jackets in Columbus.
Unfortunately, they have already lost to one New York team this year and will be on the second night of a back-to-back in this one.
The loss at New York last night surprised some as the Sharks were the best road team in the NHL last year. The Sharks ranked 4th in scoring last year with 2.89 goals per game, but have struggled offensively in their first three this year.
They will need to get some offense as they will have rookie Aaron Dell making his first career start in net.
New York Islanders
New York had a surprisingly slow start in their first two games, losing to their cross-town foes in the first game and then falling to a tough Washington team.
They won an overtime thriller in their first true home game against the Ducks and hope to carry some momentum into this one.
Brock Nelson scored his second goal of the season in the winner against the Ducks, and despite the losses, their offense should be impressive.
Jaroslav Halak is expected to get the start after winning his first in that game. So far he has 3.00 goals against average, and may need all the help the offense can provide.

Free San Jose Sharks vs. New York Islanders NHL Hockey Prediction
Both of these teams have looked pretty pedestrian to start the year, and this one could go either way. The offensive edge should be with New York and they have the home ice.

San Jose has been a great road team historically, but they are just coming off a tough loss to the Rangers last night.
The advantage in goal may also go with the Islanders since we don’t know what to expect out of the Sharks’ rookie. This would be a great home win for New York, and they should come through.
