Continuing Our Islanders vs Senators Odds Preview: The Ottawa Senators are looking to turn the corner from their losing ways of late, picking up a victory in their last game on Saturday afternoon, a 4-1 final over the Philadelphia Flyers. With the win, Ottawa snapped a seven-game losing streak and now begin a three-game homestand tonight against the New York Islanders.

Forward Brady Tkachuk leads the NHL team with 19 points overall, but forward Shane Pinto has shined thus far, leading the club with eight goals. If the 22-year old centerman can keep his pace, the Senators should be able to fill the gap missed by Josh Norris, who’s out dealing with NHL injuries to his shoulder.

Cam Talbot, the veteran goalie brought over in a trade with the Minnesota Wild this summer, has also fought through injuries to return to the lineup, but neither he nor Anton Forsberg have taken the reigns to become the top netminder for coach D.J. Smith’s squad.

Swimmingly Swell on Long Island

The New York Islanders look to continue their climb up the NHL standings in the Metropolitan Division as they open a four-game road trip this evening against the Ottawa Senators. The highway has been kind to the Isles, who have won four of their last five road games.

Forward Brock Nelson scored his eighth goal late in the second period of Saturday’s game against the Columbus Blue Jackets. Nelson’s tally with under a minute left in the middle frame tied the contest at two. New York would go on to win 4-3 in overtime, thanks to a game-winner by veteran winger Zach Parise, who scored his fifth goal of the season.

Goaltender Ilya Sorokin made 26 saves over 29 shots faced to pick up his seventh victory of the season. The 27-year old Russian native has a 2.17 goals-against average, a .932% save percentage, one shutout and is ranked third in the National Hockey League in Goals Saved Above Average with 10.1.
