Ottawa vs New York: Road Weary Senators Host Rested Islanders

Ottawa vs New York: Road Weary Senators Host Rested Islanders
Well-rested meets road weary when New York rolls into Ottawa as part of a five-game slate on the Friday night National Hockey League betting board at SportsInteraction. The Senators are playing on back-to-back nights, with travel, as they return home from a twelve-day road trip. The Islanders have enjoyed four days off as they last played on Sunday. The Crew from Canada’s Capital are sixth in a weird Atlantic Division while the Brooklyn Boys are third in the Metropolitan Division. This NHL Eastern Conference showdown is slated for 7:30 PM ET on January 22, 2016, at the Canadian Tire Centre in Ottawa, ON.

New York Islanders: Begin NHL second half playoff push

Though they are three games into the second half of the season – the Islanders playoff push begins tonight. New York has enjoyed a fairly light schedule as they have played just ten games over the past 30 days and they haven’t been on the road since January 10. The Isles have been inconsistent recently as they have posted a 6-7-1 record that’s due in part to a “feast or famine” offense. During that stretch, the Islanders outscored their opponents 27-14 in their six wins but were outscored 24-6 during the seven losses. In their last contest, New York dropped a 2-1 shootout decision at home to the Vancouver Canucks. Rust could be a factor early - being rested pays off over three periods.

Ottawa Senators: Travel weary Crew is back in Canada’s Capital after a long raod trip

Ottawa has been stumbling recently as the Senators are 4-7-0 since returning from the Christmas break. Although not an overly grueling adventure, being as it spanned twelve days, the Senators are back home following a five-game road trip. The journey began with losses to Washington (7-1) and Anaheim (4-1) continued with wins in Los Angeles (5-3) and San Jose (4-3 SO) and ended with a 6-3 blowout loss against the Devils in New Jersey last night. In short – the Senators have been like a box of chocolates. Ottawa has not been very good in perceived “rebound” games as they have followed 7-3 and 7-1 losses with 3-0 and 4-1 losses the last two times they faced that dynamic.

Islanders vs Senators NHL Selection: This match is the second of three meetings this season after Ottawa posted a 3-2 (OT) win at home in early December. Jaroslav Halak (11-8-4 GAA 2.11) battles Andrew Hammond (3-4-2 GAA 2.75) in the goaltending duel tonight. New York ranks 13th overall in the NHL with 123 goals scored and seventh with 112 goals allowed. Having played two more games than the Islanders, Ottawa is seventh with 132 goals for and a dismal 29th on defense as the Sens have allowed 147 goals. New York has a very clean injury report while Ottawa will be without top centerman Kyle Turris for a second straight game. Back the Islanders with a five-unit wager on the money line price posted on the NHL betting board at SportsInteraction.
