Road Team Dominating Battle of NY

The Battle Of New York will see its first action at the Barclays Center when the New York Islanders host the New York Rangers Wednesday. Maybe a new rink will mean a different result for the home team, as the road team is 11-2 in the past 13 meetings between the two teams.

Betting Trends
  • The Rangers will be without Derek Stepan and Kevin Klein.
  • The Islanders are 3-9 in the last 12 in the past 12 against the Eastern Conference.
  • The Rangers are 21-8 in their last 29 road games.

The Rangers have lost three of their past four and find themselves losing a lot of ground to the Montreal Canadiens atop the Eastern Conference. Oddly, goalie Henrik Lundqvist has been struggling in his past three starts as he has allowed 12 goals with an .891 save percentage.

The Islanders are heating up with a 4-0-1 record in their past five games, thanks to secondary scoring from Ryan Strome. Since being recalled from the AHL, Strome has two goals and two assists in three games.
