Dating back to December 31, 2016 the Jets and Islanders have split the last six games played, including last year when both teams won in each other’s buildings.

Seven of the last ten games played between these two teams have gone over the total.

Semyon Varlamov is no stranger to the Jets as he faced them 22 times as a member of the Avalanche. In that time, Varlamov has a record 11-11 record against them and a shutout.

Sunday have been good to the Winnipeg Jets as they are an amazing 48-12 in their last 50 Sunday games.

Winnipeg Jets

The Jets continue their four-game road trip to start the season with game three in Brooklyn. The team is flying high after erasing a four-goal deficit to beat the Devils 5-4 in a shootout. Mathieu Perreault (one goal, one assist), Mark Scheifele (two assists) and newcomer Neal Poink (one goal, one assist) all chipped in with two point efforts.

Laurent Brossoit was brilliant in the Jets goal stopping 35-of-39 shots he faced and three of four shootouts attempts. Expect Connor Hellebuyck to return to the net on Sunday evening.

Rookie defenceman Ville Heinola has two assists in his first two NHL games. The 18-year old from Honkajoki, Finland has been the biggest surprise through training camp for the hockey club.

New York Islanders

Islanders fell to the Capitals (2-1) on quiet opening night. The clubs combined for a grand total of three penalties in this game, and the Islanders only managed 24 shots on goal. Devon Toews scored the team’s only goal in 18 minutes of ice time. Toews is entering his first full NHL season with the Islanders. Last season he played in his first 48 NHL games recording five goals and 13 assists. The Islanders hope he’ll be part of their foundation for years to come.

Goaltender Semyon Varlamov made his Islanders debut Friday night and is expected to share the duties with Thomas Griess this season. Varlamov signed a four-year deal this off season replacing Vezina finalist Robin Lehner who is now in Chicago.

Defenceman Noah Dobson cracked the team’s lineup but is still looking to make his NHL debut. The Islanders are high on the big rearguard who won back-to-back Memorial Cups in the CHL. He is a longshot at Sports Interaction to win the Calder Trophy currently paying +3600.
