New York Islanders (6) vs. Tampa Bay Lightning (-185) Preview & Prediction (12/09/2019)

The New York Islanders  will be on the road Monday taking the ice against the Lightning at Amalie Arena in Tampa. The Islanders will be looking for their second win in three games following a 3-1 loss to the Stars in Dallas on Saturday. The Lightning will be looking for back-to-back wins after beating the San Jose Sharks 7-1 in Tampa their last time on the ice.

The New York Islanders are now 19-7-2 on the year following a 3-1 loss against the Stars in Dallas. The Islanders were outshot 35-37 in the game while winning just 25 of 54 faceoffs. New York was unable to score a goal on their only power-play opportunity while giving up a goal both of the times they were forced to skate shorthanded. They had 15 blocked shots and four takeaways in the game.

The Islanders have been good for an average of 2.82 goals per game this season while giving up 2.43 to their opponents. They have been able to fire 28.4 shots per game while allowing 31.7 on the defensive end of the ice. New York has scored 12 power-play goals for an 18.2 conversion rate to go with an 81.6 penalty kill percentage.

The Tampa Bay Lightning are now 14-10-3 following a 7-1 win at home against the San Jose Sharks. Both teams were able to fire 38 shots in the game with Tampa Bay winning just 30 of 63 faceoffs. The Lightning was able to score a goal on two of their four power-play opportunities while defending the net each of the four times they were forced to skate with a man in the box. They had 14 blocked shots and 10 takeaways in the game.

Tampa Bay has been able to find the back of the net for an average of 3.74 goals per game for the season while giving up 3.22 to their opponents. They have been able to fire an average of 32.2 shots per game while allowing 32.9 on the defensive end of the ice. They have 27 power-play goals this season for a 30.0 conversion rate to go with a 79.3 penalty kill percentage.

Tampa Bay will take the ice as -175 favorites with the Islanders skating in as 151 underdogs. The total is sitting at six on the game. I’m liking the total staying under in this game. New York has had some issues as of late scoring, but they have been very difficult to score against all season long. I like the Lightning winning a close game, but my money’s on the total staying under six goals.

  • The under is 7-1 in New York’s previous eight games.
