Islanders at Senators projected goalkeepers
Ilya Sorokin (15-16-4, 2.44 GAA, 0.922 SV%, 3 SO) vs. Cam Talbot (11-13-1, 2.95 GAA, 0.903 SV%, 1 SO)
Sorokin allowed 5 goals in 39 shots in Monday’s loss in Toronto and has scored 3 or more goals in 4 straight games. Despite a 2-5-3 record in starts on Jan. 10, he still has 2.90 GAA and 0.911 SV%.
Talbot was a lot shakier in January, going 1-4-0 overall with 3.85 GAA and .870 SV% in 4 starts and 5 appearances. He was actually pretty solid last time out, conceding 4 goals on 44 shots in Friday’s 4-1 loss in Pittsburgh, but didn’t get any offensive support.

Islanders at Senators Picks and Predictions
Islanders 4, Senators 3
the ISLANDERS (+100) and Senators (-120) have both struggled recently, but the head-to-head trends speak seriously for New York.
The Islanders have dominated that series of late, going 10-1 in their last 11 meetings, including a 6-1 mark in their last 7 trips to the Canadian capital.
Puck Line/Against the Scatter
The Islanders +1.5 (-250) will cost you 2 1/2 times your potential return, and that’s ridiculous. There’s absolutely no value in playing a line that high when you need some reassurance. If you like New York, just play it straight.
the OVER 6.5 (+115) is worth a roll of the dice with Plus-Money.
The Over have cashed in 5 of the last 6 matches between these teams in Ottawa. Yes, there are concerns as the Sens have conceded the Under in 8 of their last 10 home games against everyone else. And the Under is 7-3 in their last 10 games overall for the Islands. But based on series trends, go up.
