New York vs New Jersey: Islanders Visit the Devils in the Swamp

New York vs New Jersey: Islanders Visit the Devils in the Swamp
Matinee National Hockey League action is on tap this afternoon with the New Jersey Devils hosting the New York Islanders as part of a busy ten-game slate on the puck betting board at the YouWin online sportsbook. The Islanders and Devils have both moved past early season stumbles as they have played some solid hockey recently. This NHL Metropolitan Division battle is slated for 1:00 PM ET on October 31, 2015, at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey.

New York Islanders: Flat Thursday effort should be motivation

Securing at least one point in eight of their first ten contests, New York has been one of the more impressive teams early on during the young 2015-16 NHL season. Sitting with a 6-2-2 record has the Islanders tied for second place with Washington in the Metropolitan Division and tied for third overall in the Eastern Conference. Every team, no matter the sport, has a flat effort from time to time and that was the case Thursday night as New York dropped a 3-2 OT decision at home to the Carolina Hurricanes. The Islanders registered a season low 19 shots on goal against the ‘Canes and they let one goal leads slip away twice – the second with just over five minutes left in the game. 

New Jersey Devils: Playing above preseason expectations after early season stumbles

Posted with a +5000 money line price to win the Eastern Conference back in the preseason, the second worst odds ahead of Carolina’s +7500 price, New Jersey stumbled out of the starting gate with a 0-3-1 record. Responding better than many expected they would, the Devils have turned things around as they’ve won five of their last six games. Whether their recent winning ways will continue is arguable as New Jersey is still lacking offensive firepower with a meager 2.5 goals per game average. Like the Islanders, the Devils last played on Thursday as they went into Philadelphia and posted a 4-1 win vs the Flyers. Time will tell if the Cinderella season continues in the Swamp.

Islanders vs Devils Decision: New York swept the four-game season series versus New Jersey last season, by a 12-5 margin, and the Islanders have won six straight versus the Devils. Additionally, the Islanders have posted a win during their last six visits to the Prudential Center dating back to 2013. In what’s a fairly even goaltending duel, Cory Schneider (5-2 GAA 2.22) is starting for the Devils while Jaroslav Halak (3-1 GAA 1.77) will be in between the pipes for the Islanders. John Tavares & Crew are a feisty bunch and they can’t be happy with their performance against Carolina. Expecting the entire team will be better today, and still not sold on the Devils, we are backing the Islanders with 500 unit wager on the money line price posted at the YouWin online sportsbook.
