There is nothing that jumps off the page in this Islanders vs Rangers game more than goaltending. As mentioned, Shesterkin has the Vezina Trophy wrapped up for the Rangers, but the Islanders have also been a defensive juggernaut this season, and it all starts in net for them too.

Ilya Sorokin has been a stud for the Islanders all season long. He is at the top of the league in every category that matters. Unfortunately, he is currently sidelined with an upper body injury. Varlamov is no slob at back-up, but Islanders fans and bettors would certainly rather have their rock for this New York City clash.

Islanders vs Rangers Prediction

In their first three season meetings, the Islanders vs Rangers went under the current 5.5 number. Both teams know each other well and have been in high-scoring battles as of late. This game is likely to slow down and be a battle in all three zones. Back-up goaltenders are always a concern for the under, but that seems to be the play here.
