Puck Line Pick
Remember when the Islanders looked like a potential championship contender? My, how times have changed. New York is mired in a brutal seven-game winless streak, and they’re 2-7-4 over their past 13 (as of Wednesday afternoon). The Islanders also aren’t good on the road (15-14-14) AND they’re playing on Wednesday night in Calgary. However, if you want to be an optimist, you can focus on the Isles’ 6-1-1 record on the second night of back-to-backs or their 19-14 road record against the spread.
Over Under Pick
The Flames are somewhat improving, as the team has gone 5-2-1 over their last eight. While Calgary has been a bit underwhelming at home this season (16-13-4), they’re even worse against the spread (9-24). Worst of all, the Islanders have generally had the Flames’ number in recent years, with New York going 6-4-0 over their last 10 meetings.
