Islanders vs Buffalo: will the terrible home run end?

Islanders have lost several matches in a row, so they will probably try to succeed in the confrontation with Buffalo on 3 February. Will they be able to do that? Look for the answer in the forecast below.

New York Islanders

Islanders seemed to have a good start this season and won three games out of four, but then they were overtaken by a series of defeats that continues up to now. Recall that the team lost in five matches in a row and, in fact, in each of them could get the victory.  Offensively, "Islanders" lost to "Washington" (2:3 and 3:6), and after that, they lost to "Philadelphia" twice in extra time respectively with the scores 2:3 and 3:4. The defence, which Barry Trotz’s squad has always been famous for, regularly fails, but at the same time Semyon Varlamov does his job well and has already managed to issue two "crackers". By the way, he did not go out on the ice in the last meeting, as Sorokin played, but "Varley" will certainly appear on the court in the match with "Blades"

Buffalo Sabres

"Buffalo" is also not stable yet and is on the sixth line of the Eastern Division, with ten points in the asset. Note that the team has been alternating between victories and defeats lately. So, it defeated the "Rangers" (3:2) but lost to the "Cops" in the next meeting (2:3 OT).

The same situation happened in the confrontation with "New Jersey". In the first match, the "Blades" dealt with the opponent in shootouts (4:3 B), and they lost with a score of 3:5 in the return game. We emphasize that Ralph Kruger’s charges also have problems with defence, and on average they concede about three goals per game.

Our Prediction

Islanders undoubtedly look like the favourite in this confrontation, because they surpass their rival in class and experience. Even in spite of a series of defeats, the "Islanders" are probably “burning” with the desire to rehabilitate themselves. Moreover, they have not lost on their ice for a long time in the matches with the "Blades".
