January 07, 2020, 7:00 PM ET. Prudential Center. New York Islanders vs New Jersey Devils game preview.

The teams met each other recently, and the New Jersey then prevailed over the Islanders. On January 7, a second duel between them will take place, on which our website prepared a prediction.

New York Islanders

The Islanders game is very interesting, but recently unpredictable. A team can win several matches in a row, and then simply score one goal or not score at all and concede in the end.

However, it must be emphasized that the “Islanders” are still in the top five teams of the Eastern Conference and have scored 53 points at the moment. By the way, on the road, wards of Trotz won 12 out of 20 fights.

New Jersey Devils

New Jersey won three games in a row before being defeated by the “Colorado” with a score of 2: 5. Note that earlier the “Devils” managed to get two points in the matches with “Ottawa” (4: 3 OT), “Boston” (3: 2 B) and even “Islanders” (2: 1).

In the meeting with Islay, the team of Alain Nasreddin lost 0-1, but thanks to the goals of Subban and Khishira, he still achieved success. Recall that the team currently occupies the penultimate line of the East standings.

Islanders vs Devils Predictions

The match will be difficult for both teams, but we will remain on the side of the hosts. Devils have recently figured out their rival, and are generally in good shape and are eager to get out of the penultimate line of the East. The Islanders, on the contrary, are on the decline and are not at all distinguished by abandoned goals. Based on this, we expect a repeat of the result and take the Total Under. Prediction – Total Under 5.5.
