The "Islanders" reached the top spot in the Eastern Division with a total of 34 points.

Recall that in three matches in a row, on their ice, the "Islanders" proved superiority over the "Buffalo".

Upcoming Predictions for Hockey
"Boston" has been showing very unstable results lately, and it is absolutely unclear what causes them. The team alternates between victories and defeats and just can't get to the streak. After the defeat to "Washington" (1:2), the "Bruins" beat the "Capitals" in the return match with a score of 5:1, but later again lost to "New Jersey" with a score of 0:1, being the clear favorite.
Let us remind you that the "Bruins" hit 40 shots on the "Devils" goal, but they still did not manage to score. On the road, as a rule, Bruce Cassidy's squad scores less than at home, and they also concede a lot more. Note that the team failed six out of 13 meetings.
The "Islanders" are in good shape and are probably in good spirits after the streak with "Buffalo". On the other hand, "Boston" demonstrate unstable results and alternate between victories and defeats, while often they are unable to break the opponent's defense more than twice. Plus, in previous head-to-head meetings, the "Islanders" regularly proved their superiority.
Our prediction is a victory for the "Islanders" in the match with odds of 2.69 on 1xbet.
