Full detailed prediction read below
Vancouver scored four goals in the third period, beat San Jose 5-2 and extended the winning streak to four matches, strengthening leadership in the Pacific Division. The success of the Canucks was brought by Quinn Hughes and Tanner Pearson, scoring 2 (1 + 1) points, and a brilliant game by goalkeeper Jacob Markstrom, who reflected 38 shots. In the last sixteen matches, the team scored thirteen victories and is three points ahead of Calgary.
Forward Tyler Motte was injured in his upper body, whether he will play with the Islanders is still unknown.
In the last four games, the Nucks have conceded just five goals. Starting December 19th, Travis Green’s team won twelve out of fifteen matches and jumped to first place in the very dense Pacific Division, where only five points share the top five teams.
New York Islanders
It sounds crazy, I agree, but Barry Trotz can not reach the hockey players and the team, clinging to his teeth, still falls down. According to dangerous moments, the Islanders take third place at their gates from the end – it’s no good. Yes, Trotz’s squads were always made to be skeptical of any advanced statistics, but a year ago they were at least in the middle on this indicator.
A huge blow for the team was the injury of defender Adam Pelech, one of the best in the team in almost all respects. In January, after his loss, the Islanders won only four of the eleven matches, and there is no doubt that Semyon Varlamov misses his main assistant, who will not return until the end of the season.
Given that the current goal of scoring goals for the current Islanders is implied by default, skepticism about their chances of staying on the third line of the Capital Division is only growing. Moreover, Carolina and Philadelphia are actively running out from behind, and the first is really scaring with its statistics.
After a pause for the All Stars, the Ice landers had not yet played, and in the last game before they managed to win in the next Battle for New York. The victory over fellow countrymen was for the Islanders only the second in the last seven matches and the sixth in the last seventeen. The team of Barry Trotz, who succeeds mainly due to defense, has missed five or more goals five times in the last six weeks, including three times six and one time eight.

Canucks vs Islanders Prediction
I believe in the genius of Barry Trotz and in the fact that he was able to productively use the break in the championship. The team purposefully prepared for Vancouver and I expect surprises from it. In addition, Vancouver away plays much worse than at home.
Our prediction – Islanders will win
