The St. Louis Blues and the New York Islanders will both be trying to pick up a win on Monday when they battle at Barclays Center.

ABOUT THE BLUES (2-0-0): Pietrangelo leads the way for a defense corps that has registered eight points in the first two games, even without the injured Jay Bouwmeester (ankle). Carl Gunnarson has notched a point in each contest and scored his first goal in 62 games on Saturday while Colton Parayko and Joel Edmundson also have netted tallies. Brayden Schenn, who was acquired from Philadelphia in the offseason, has made a big impression early on as he has recorded a goal and three assists to tie Pietrangelo and Jaden Schwartz for the team scoring lead.

ABOUT THE ISLANDERS (1-1-0): Jordan Eberle has not had to change how he plays to adjust to a spot on the top line with Tavares and set up the first goal in Saturday’s win. “(Tavares) plays a similar style to me,” Eberle, who came over from Edmonton during the summer, told Newsday. “The speed he goes at, I’m comfortable with. He sees the ice. I think it’s only going to get better the more we play together.” Cal Clutterbuck (hip) likely will miss his second straight game and coach Doug Weight is expected to keep center Brock Nelson on a line between Jason Chimera and Nikolay Kulemin.

Oddsmakers opened the Blues as -102-moneyline favorites versus the Islanders, while the game’s total opened at 5.5.

The New York Islanders quickly washed away the memories of a disappointing season opener with a solid performance and look to produce another when they host the unbeaten St. Louis Blues on Monday afternoon. Captain John Tavares scored 1:50 into the contest as the Islanders recorded the first four goals en route to a 6-3 home victory over Buffalo on Saturday – one day after getting pounded 5-0 at Columbus.

“We did a good job of creating chances, we played with speed, didn’t turn the puck over in the neutral zone,” New York center Casey Cizikas told reporters after scoring twice and adding an assist on Saturday. “It all starts with our captain getting that first goal. He was outstanding and we followed up.” The Blues go for their third straight victory to open the season as they begin a four-game road trip after posting a 4-2 triumph over Dallas in their home opener on Saturday. Defenseman Alex Pietrangelo is off to a strong start with a pair of goals and two assists along with a team-high 11 shots as St. Louis has scored nine times in its first two contests. The Blues, who lost forward Robby Fabbri (knee) for the season and are without three other key performers due to injuries, have gotten goals from eight different players in the early going – including four defensemen.

New York won its last outing, a 6-3 result against the Sabres on October 07. Bettors who backed the Islanders at -125 on the moneyline won on the day, and the total score (9) sent OVER bettors to the payout window.

The Blues were a 4-2 winner in their most recent outing at home against the Stars. That made winners of bettors who got St. Louis at -146 on the moneyline, while the total score (6) was good news for OVER bettors.
