The Jets are a team that has had some issues on the year and a lot of it stems back to the fact that their defense is simply getting overworked and they are relying on only a couple of players to lead them offensively. That definitely makes it difficult for the Jets to win the games. The Islanders have been all over the place and that will lead to them being able to bring home a win in this game here as the Jets struggle yet again. Final Score Prediction, New York Islanders win 4-2.
