Islanders vs Rangers: prediction for the NHL preseason match
New York Islanders
The last game of the Islanders was interrupted due to a power outage, and the match was canceled. Thus the upcoming game will be the last for the islanders in the preseason.
Earlier the islanders have already crushed the Rangers (4:0) and defeated Philadelphia twice (3:2 ОТ and 3:0). Barry Trotz's charges don't give their opponents space in their zone.
New York Rangers
Just like last season, the Rangers will build their game through the attack. They are not afraid to act on a collision course or sometimes on counterattacks, waiting for the opponent's mistake. The Rangers celebrated success in the last two preseason games.
First, they made a comeback in the game against Boston (4:3 ОТ), and they confidently dealt with New Jersey at home (6:2). Mika Zibanejad is in good form and he scored two goals against the Devils.
The Islanders conceded under 4 goals in all preseason games.
In 3 previous games of the Islanders, one of the teams did not score in the first period.
The Islanders have always been uncomfortable opponents for the Rangers. We believe that at home, the Islanders will be able to get the upper hand. The Rangers struggle against the teams that play such closed defensive hockey, so we suggest playing the Islanders' victory.
Our prediction -the Islanders to win
Prediction: Islanders to win

The Islanders are playing a very defensive style of hockey, and previous games with their participation were all low-scoring.
Second bet - total under 5.5 goals
