The New York Islanders will take on the Columbus Blue Jackets in Columbus Today.
In this first NHL Ice Hockey Predictions today.
The CBJ are coming into this one after a one day rest, and making short work of the Vancouver Canuks.
The CBJ Dominated the Canucks from the 1st period, making it look relatively easy…
and putting on display some very nice puck movement.
Ultimately defeating Vancouver 5-0. Another UNDER for the Blue Jackets.
The New York Islanders beat the Arizona Coyotes in their last outing,
scoring early in the first and missing quite a few chances early on.
This was a highly entertaining amtch up, with both Goalies getting a real workout in the 2nd and 3rd periods.
Kemper,in the net for the Coyotes made some amazing saves but it wasnt enough to stop the Islander scoring another goal in the 3rd.
Making it a 2-0 Islanders win.
The last 5 games totals wise for the CBJ sees them trending 5-0 to the UNDER. Scoring only 12 goals and allowing 15.
The Islander are trending 4-1 to the UNDER. Scoring just 9 goals over that stretch, and letting 13 over the line.
Robin Lehner GAA: 217
Sergei Bobrovsky GAA: 2.67
looking back at the last 5 head to heads in terms of totals, we see its 4-1 to te UNDER,
With the last 2 games going under the total, with the CBJ not able to score a single goal in both of those games.
History does often repeat itself when it comes to ice hockey scoring
and these last 2 games are very recent happening in Feb and march of this year.
Looking at all the relevant stats, I think this game will be a tight defensive struggle,
as both teams really make each other work for their shots.
Im believe this game will stay under the posted total of 5.5 and add yet another under to these teams total stats.
