On January 11, the Islanders will try to beat Boston for the second time this season, and we, in turn, will give a forecast for this match. In the last full-time meeting, the “Islanders” prevailed in a series of shootouts. What will happen this time?

Boston Bruins 26-8-11

For a long period of time, Boston has occupied the second line of the Western Conference and, apparently, is not going to leave it. But it will be difficult for him to take a leading position since Washington is also on the alert and does not intend to give points. Note that the Bruins won two meetings in a row.

First, visiting the “Bears” it turned out to deal with “Nashville” (6:2), and already on their ice, they were stronger than “Winnipeg” – 5:4 in a productive fight.

New York Islanders 27-12-3

The Islanders occupy a place in the top three of the Eastern Conference, but already do not look as confident as before. The team slowed down a bit, which made it much harder for her to earn points. For example, not without difficulty, the “Islanders” defeated the “Colorado” (1:0) and sorted out the “New Jersey” (4:3 B). Although we note that before that the team was defeated by the same “Devils” (1:2) and “Toronto” (0:3).

But on the other hand, within the framework of their ice, the wards of Barry Trotz continue to keep the bar and so far have lost only five meetings in regular time.

Boston Bruins vs New York Islanders Prediction

Boston has established its game in attack and is very productive in its last matches, so the Islanders will be incredibly difficult to resist such an attack. And this is taking into account the fact that in the previous match the “Islanders” conceded three goals from “New Jersey”, one of the main outsiders of the championship.
