NY Islanders vs Ny Rangers NHL

The battle of New York reignites on Tuesday night as the Islanders continue their pursuit of a top three spot in the Metropolitan Division.


It’s been a disappointing season for the New York Rangers who will be missing out on the postseason again this year. They have already started to look to the future with Igor Shestyorkin getting increasingly more playing time in net as the Rangers look to see what exactly they have in the youngster. Don’t be surprised if he gets a start against the Islanders in this one.

The New York Islanders are hoping to finish in a top three spot and not in a Wild Card position, but they will have to battle throughout the remainder of the campaign to ensure it happens. They love playing at Nassau Coliseum and should be motivated by the raucous home crowd.

This will be an intense battle as it always is when these two rivals meet but expect the Islander to pick up the two points in a crucial contest for them.

Take the home side to earn the victory.

Score Prediction: NY Rangers 1-2 NY Islanders

Betting Tips

The Islanders have one of the stingiest defences in the league and they will have to rely on that solid defensive play to pick up the victory on Tuesday. We probably won’t be seeing too many goals scored at Nassau Coliseum. The under should be a lock on sports betting sites.


The Islanders need the points more and will be hungry to beat their crosstown rivals at the Nassau Coliseum. It’ll be a tightly contested game but the home side shouldn’t have any issues picking up the win.
