Islanders Ready For Four-Point Game With Senators Tuesday

Posted by Don Melrose on 3/17/2013 7:03:41 PM

The New York Islanders continue to find ways to score under head coach Jack Capuano. Now the team needs to learn how to consistently prevent them from going in to their own net. The Islanders will look to take another step in the right direction overall when they host the injury-riddled Ottawa Senators on Tuesday night. New York ranks 29th in the NHL in goals per game allowed with an average of 3.3 against them per night, and needs to drastically bring that online betting number down to have any shot at making the playoffs this year.

The Islanders could certainly take a page out of the book of the Senators’ team they are chasing for a playoff spot in this four-point game. Ottawa ranks No. 1 in the NHL in goals per game allowed, and that is the biggest reason why they are still in the thick of the playoff race despite injuries to Erik Karlsson, Jason Spezza, and Craig Anderson.

A big part of the No. 1 defensive ranking in the NHL is the league’s second-ranked penalty kill, which the Senators have been able to rely on when they have gotten in to penalty trouble. Ottawa does an excellent job blocking shots and playing a physical brand of up-tempo hockey along the boards, and they have made it much easier on Ben Bishop and Robin Lehner in Anderson’s absence. The strong defensive play has been an absolute necessity with their top two scorers out, as the Senators rank just 27th in goals per game.

The Islanders haven’t been nearly as good in their own end, but this will be an excellent opportunity to make a statement. Evgeni Nabokov turned aside all 18 shots he faced in a 2-0 win over the Tampa Bay Lightning last Thursday, and if New York continues to play the way they did in that game in front of him, the goals against average will go down. The Islanders have the firepower to put the Senators under if they can get a couple of early goals. Captain John Tavares has once again been dominant with a team-leading 17 goals and 31 points, and the emergence of Matt Moulson has only added to the dangers opponents face with this team’s top line.

NHL Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick

There are a lot of things that Capuano has done to help this online sportsbook franchise in his first year on the Islanders’ bench, and they will only get better with more time. New York has an excellent opportunity to gain two points against one of the teams that it is chasing in the Eastern Conference playoff race, so don’t expect them to let this one get away from them on home ice.
