Arizona vs Islanders: prediction for the NHL fixture
The Arizona Coyotes and the New York Islanders will lock horns in the NHL action on October 24. What to expect from this game? Our answer is in the prediction below.
The Arizona Coyotes have been one of the outsiders for a few years now. The Coyotes had an extremely poor start to the new NHL season, having suffered four defeats in a row from Columbus (2:8), Buffalo (1:2 B), St. Louis (4:7), and Edmonton (1:5).
At this moment, the Coyotes have conceded the most goals of all the teams in the NHL. Both of Arizona's goalies lack the necessary skill and are very unreliable. If the Coyotes continue to show such bad results, André Tourigny will probably have to look for a different job.
New York Islanders
The New York Islanders are inconsistent at the start of the season, which is a typical situation for the club. The New Yorkers suffered two defeats against Carolina (3:6) and Florida (1:5), but celebrated success against Chicago (4:1). The Islanders also earned one point against Columbus, losing 2:3 in overtime.
Barry Trotz's system is built around solid defensive play, and the Islanders usually do not score more than 3 goals.
In the last 5 games against the Islanders, Arizona scored fewer than 3 goals.
In 3 previous games of the Islanders, fewer than 2 goals were scored in the first period.
The Islanders have a system, while the Coyotes rely solely on performance skills of their forwards. Arizona have huge problems on the defensive and have conceded the most goals out of all the clubs in the league. We predict an easy victory for the Islanders.
