  Vegas Golden Knights vs N.Y. Islanders

The Vegas Golden Knights are making waves with a solid 27-14-5 record, securing the second spot in the competitive Pacific Division. It’s been a standout season for the Golden Knights, as their offence takes the spotlight, averaging an impressive 3.13 goals per game. While the offence shines, it’s the Golden Knights’ robust defence that deserves accolades, holding opponents to a stingy 2.65 goals per game.

On the opposite end of the spectrum, the New York Islanders find themselves with a 20-15-11 record, facing a recent slump with just three wins in their last 10 outings. Struggling to find the back of the net, the Islanders’ offence is averaging 2.93 goals per game. Despite offensive challenges, it’s the Islanders’ defence that has become a point of concern, allowing an average of 3.33 goals per game, with a notable 15 goals conceded in their recent four-game stretch.

How the game will play out

Despite the Knights having a strong season, the upcoming clash at the Islanders’ home stadium adds an intriguing element. Despite the Knights winning their last encounter in January with a score of 5-2, the home advantage might give the Islanders the edge for a potential win.  

My pick: The N.Y. Islanders with a puck line of -1.5 at (+163) PowerPlay Sports.
