Analysis
This is a play in the NEW YORK ISLANDERS for our NHL Wednesday Breakaway. The welcome home has not gotten off to a good start for the Islanders. After dropping their final four games of a 13-game roadtrip to open the season, they have lost their first two games in their new arena falling to Calgary 5-2 and then getting shutout by Toronto 3-0. The last game was a disaster as they were outshot 40-20 by the Maple Leafs and two days off since then can only help. The unfortunate schedule has played its toll as the Islanders are averaging just 2.07 gpg which is second worst in the NHL and the power play has been to blame as their 12.2 percent success rate is third worst in the league. Facing their biggest rival should have them ready to go. The Rangers are coming off a 5-4 win over Buffalo to make it five wins over their last six games to move into a tie for fourth place with Tampa Bay in the NHL Eastern Conference. They are 5-1-1-0 at home but have dropped five of 11 on the road while averaging just 2.55 gpg. While the Islanders power play has been off, the Rangers could be the cure as they have allowed seven goals in 17 chances over their last eight games while converting just four goals on their own end. Going back, the Rangers are 1-4 in their last five road games. Here, we play on home teams when the money line is -100 to -150 that are getting outscored by their opponents by 0.5 or more gpg, after allowing three goals or more in five straight games. This situation is 140-79 (63.9 percent) since 1996. 10* (34) New York Islanders
