Two New York squads, that are both headed to the National Hockey League playoff party, hit the road to visit teams playing out the string in the NHL Eastern Conference. The New York Islanders roll into New Jersey to face the Devils while the New York Rangers are in Carolina to battle the Hurricanes. Both games have their puck drop slated for 7:05 PM ET on March 21, 2015.
New York vs New Jersey: Islanders duel with the Devils
Having last played on Tuesday, New York should be well rested as they make a short 46-mile trip to New Jersey tonight. The break could not have come at a better time for the young Islanders as they have posted a 2-4-2 record in March and have lost four straight games. The Devils return home after their 3-1 win over the Sabres last night. New Jersey, with a barely beating playoff pulse are playing their third game in five nights – all of which were victories by a 9-2 combined count.
Carolina vs New York: Hurricanes are blowing out sea while the Rangers are rolling
Currently fourth overall in the NHL, if the Rangers win the games they have in hand they will jump to the front of the Presidents’ Trophy race. New York is rested as well as they haven’t played since a 1-0 home loss to Chicago on Wednesday. Carolina is 22 points out of the playoffs with 12 games remaining so their next loss will officially eliminate the Hurricanes from the postseason chase. Carolina is 2-5-2 in March and don’t look like they have much fight left in the tank.
Rangers & Islanders Parlay Prediction: Though not officially eliminated – the inevitable is on the horizon for the Devils as their “magic number” is down to four. Following their matches tonight, the Rangers face seven straight playoff contenders while the Islanders will battle four. Expect both New York squads to make some hay here.
