Free ESPN NHL Pick New York Rangers vs. New York Islanders

The Islanders host the Rangers at the Barclays Center.

New York Rangers

The Rangers come into the game on Saturday without a win in their last five games. Their latest defeat came at the hands of their cross town rivals, the Islanders(4-3) just 2 days ago. With this loss the Rangers currently sit in the lower half of the Metropolitan division with 41pts. The Rangers face a tough task this weekend as they play in a venue, where they have never tasted victory and are going up against a team that is on a roll. Over is 3-0-1 in Rangers last 4 road games vs. a team with a winning home record and are 0-5 in their last 5 games playing on 1 days rest . Rangers are 0-7 in the last 7 meetings in New York and 5-16 in the last 21 meetings.

New York Islanders

The New York Islanders started 2019 with a bang winning 5 out of 6 games they played this year including one against the Rangers at the Madison Square Garden on Thursday. The last minute win against the Rangers served two purposes namely boosting the confidence of the Islanders and breaking the Spirit of the Rangers. The Islanders are placed 4th on the Metropolitan Division with 52pts and an win here will help them climb past Columbus(53pts) and Pittsburgh(54pts) to 2nd spot. The Islanders are 6-0 in their last 6 Saturday games and are 7-1 in their last 8 overall with 6-1 in their last 7 in the second game of a home-and-home situation. The Islanders are 4-1 in the last 5 meetings between the two teams.

 ESPN NHL Pick New York Islanders vs. New York Rangers

Looking at the stats one would feel that the Rangers don’t stand much of a chance against the Islanders, especially at the Barclays Center where they have never recorded a victory, however the tussle between the two teams on Thursday went down to the wire with both teams fighting on equal footing, so the Rangers cannot be ruled out yet. However between the two, I feel the Islanders stand a better chance of taking this one as they have played well of late, and the home advantage they have, might just be too steep for the Rangers to overcome.
