Boston's got to finish strong...Jagr is a great fit and I believe this team will continue to roll. I'll be betting that the Bs goal-tending gets better and go with the puck-line tonight. Bruins 4-1 / 4-2.  GL e1

In looking at this matchup, 

2 X-Factors : Boston Bruins on the 2nd night of back-to-back games and New York Islanders' current hot streak. 

Boston is 2-3 this season in the 2nd game of a back-to-back. However, 3 of those match-ups were on the road (including 2 road losses vs. Pittsburgh Penguins). Tonight's home game will feature Tuukka Rask, who was given the last night off, and a chance for Boston to get some breathing room in the tight race for the Northeast Division lead. 

The New York Islanders have been surging as of late, winning 7 of their 9 games. 6 of these 7 wins were at the depends of teams who would be out of the playoffs if they started tomorrow. All along the season, The Isles have shown great signs of improvement compared to the previous season but have not been able to demonstrate its capacity to win vs. ''The big teams'' (1-6 in match-ups vs. Pittsburgh or Boston). 

Even though the Bruins will likely be without its top scorer Brad Marchand tonight, it will be hard for any visiting team to stop Boston's current 3 home game winning streak (14-2-2 at home thise season). Claude Julien will have his squad ready for this one, no chance of overlooking this game. 

FINAL SCORE : Boston Bruins- 4  New York Islanders- 2
