Eastern Conference playoff contenders meet in Brooklyn when the New York Islanders host the Montreal Canadiens in National Hockey League action tonight. The Islanders have had three days off following a pair of convincing wins while the Canadiens are playing back-to-back contests, with travel, after a loss last night. It’s Price to the rescue for the Hads as All Star Carey Price makes his first start in goal since October 29 in this match. Puck drop is slated for 7:30 PM ET on November 20, 2015, at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.
New York Islanders: Breaking out of a sluggish eight-game skid
Following a hot 6-2-1 start, New York struggled some as the Islanders posted a 2-4-2 over their next eight games. Discovering a spark on offense, New York is now riding a two-game winning streak has they won 4-1 in Anaheim last Friday and then 5-2 at home against Arizona on Monday. Jaroslav Halak (5-4-1 GAA 1.90) gets a second straight start in net tonight after he stopped 31 of 33 shots in the Islanders victory over the Coyotes. John Tavares has six points in his last four games.
Montreal Canadiens: Hoping that Price will be right after a long layoff due to injury
Although they didn’t totally crash and burn during his absence, Montreal has to be happy to get All Star puck stopper Carey Price (7-2-0 GAA 2.01) back between the pipes tonight. Prior to Price being sidelined, with a “lower body” injury, the Canadiens cruised to an NHL best 9-2-0 season opening start. Thrust into the starting role, rookie netminder Mike Condon was solid as Montreal went 5-2-2 during his nine starts. The Habs are tied with the Rangers with 30 points in the Eastern Conference.
Islanders vs Canadiens NHL Call: This is the second meeting in 15 days between these clubs, the Habs posted a 4-1 win at the Bell Centre on November 5, and they will close out their season series in Montreal on Sunday. New York has outscored their opponents by a 14-7 margin while posting a 3-1 recent record. Montreal has a slim 24-22 GF/GA mark during a 4-2-2 run in November. How the “rust factor” will affect Price remains to be seen but we can’t see him being razor sharp in this contest.
