Money Line Pick
Montreal continues their road trip against teams from the Metropolitan Divison, looking for a second-straight win. The Islanders have lost a lot of games lately, and with only three wins in their last 10 games, their chances at good seeding in the playoffs continue to dwindle. The Canadiens have won five of the last six head-to-head meetings against the Islanders. New York still holds a strong record at home winning five of their last seven games. Hosting the Canadiens at the Barclays Center might prove to be the difference. Take the Islanders at home.
Over Under Pick
Both teams have had major drop-offs in regards to there production and it has really shown. New York has dropped well below three-goals per game, while Montreal has hung around the three-goal mark for much of the year. The Canadiens have scored three or more goals in six of their last seven games. Meanwhile the Islanders have gone scoreless on three occasions in their last 10 games. Including a recent 4-0 shutout loss against Boston. At a 5.5-total for this clash, taking the over is worth backing with confidence, as their first meeting resulted in a six-goal total.
