New York Islanders

The red hot Islanders come to St. Louis on the back of six successive victories and will look to maintain their winning ways. Their latest victims were the Chicago Blackhawks, who lost 3-2 to the Islanders. The Islanders are 5-0 in their last 5 games overall and 6-1 in their last 7 road games while the under is 9-1-1 in their last 11 games following a win. The Islanders (22-13-4), who have won eight of their last nine overall, are seeking their first six-game winning streak since closing the 2016-17 season with one. New York is 2-5 in the last 7 meetings between these two teams in St. Louis. The Islanders (48 points) are currently one point back of the Montreal Canadiens (49 points) for the second wild card berth and one point back of the Columbus Blue Jackets for third in the Metropolitan Division.

St. Louis Blues

The Blues also come into  the game with back to back against strong teams like the Capitals(5-2) and the Rangers(2-1). The Blues are 4-0 in their last 4 games against a team with a winning record and 2-8 in their last 10 games following a win while the over is 6-2 in their last 8 home games. St. Louis (16-18-4) has split the first four games on their home turf and are playing its fourth straight opponent from the Metropolitan Division. The injured Vladimir Tarasenko who did not play the game against the Capitals seems to have recovered from his injuries and might play against the Islanders. The Blues (36 points) are currently in seventh place in the Central Division and are 14th in the Western Conference, nine points back of a wild card berth.

Free ESPN NHL Pick New York Islanders Vs. St. Louis Blues

It is the first time the Islander are meeting the Blues this season.The Blues of late have had a string of good games, including the win against the Capitals, and it would seem that they have an upper-hand in this match-up at home, with a 2-5 record against them. However the Islanders are in crazy hot form right now with 5 wins on the trot and an impressive record on the road. The Islanders simply have been more consistent than the Blues and in my opinion have been better on the ice than the Blues, so expect the Islanders to take this one.
