New York averages 8.6 penalty minutes per game, the ninth-most in the Eastern Conference. Zdeno Chara leads the team serving 77 total minutes.

In their last 10 games the Islanders are 7-3, averaging 3.3 goals, 5.1 assists, 3.6 penalties and 8.1 penalty minutes while giving up 2.4 goals per game with a .932 save percentage.

BETTING TRENDS

NY Islanders are 4-1 SU in their last 5 games.

The total has gone OVER in 5 of NY Islanders' last 7 games.

Dallas are 6-2 SU in their last 8 games.

The total has gone OVER in 4 of Dallas' last 5 games at home.

Prediction

The Islanders haven't been good on the road this season, they're losing the 58% of the time away from home and the 82% of the time as underdogs this season. The Stars have won 7 of their last 10 games and already beat the Isles on the road. I expect a 3-2 type of game and the Stars will get the win at home.
