After recording a 1-2-0 record on the California portion of their four-game road trip, the Islanders return to the Metropolitan area to take on the Rangers tonight.
The Isles have enjoyed great success against their rivals in the past two seasons, recording a 7-1-0 record. They’ve also dominated at The Garden in the last 10 matchups in Manhattan, sporting an 8-2-0 record.
John Tavares loves to torment the Blueshirts. In 39 games, Tavares has posted 37 points (14 goals, 23 assists) against the Rangers.
After being a healthy scratch so far this season, the Isles are expected to insert defenseman Ryan Pulock in the lineup. The Isles hope that Pulock, armed with his big shot from the point, can boost the team’s power play which has yet to register goal with the man advantage this season.
