The New York Islanders are proving to be one of the best UNDER teams in the NHL recently with the team posting a 1-8-1 totals record in their past 10 games. Those 10 games have seen the Islanders and their opponents averaging a combined 4.2 goals per game. The Isles will continue their California road trip when they visit the Anaheim Ducks Friday.
- Both teams are currently expected to start their backup goalies.
- The Ducks are last in the NHL with just 27 goals this season.
- The Islanders are 3-7 in their last 10 road games.
The Islanders have been struggling in November so far with the team posting a 2-4 record with only 10 goals in six games. The road has not been especially good to the Islanders this season with only John Tavares notching five points or more on the team.
The Ducks season has been largely considered a wreck so far. Anaheim finished first in the Western Conference last season, but are just 5-7-4 this season and are six points off the Pacific Division leading LA Kings. Only Corey Perry has managed to hit double-digit points through the first 16 games.
