Anaheim Ducks vs. New York Islanders

An annoying defeat to the Nashville Predators and a three-day break will not make life easier for the New York Islanders when they play against Anaheim Ducks, who have the league’s best goalkeeper at the moment.

In any case, the Islanders will strive to secure their second away win this season to build on their 2-2-0 start. The team scores an average 2.8 goals per game and realizes 25% of created opportunities.

Anaheim Ducks goaltender John Gibson is flawless at the moment. He is a strong goalie, calm under pressure and can save the game for his team in the most crucial moment. But it is obvious that no goalkeeper is perfect and each of them has weak spots. John Gibson is not very tall, and playing on his knees, he leaves free space at the top of the net. The Islanders players can take advantage of this.
