Prediction

The Golden Knights have been playing much better lately and have won 6 of their last 7 games scoring an average of 4.5 goals per game on that strecht but already lost against the Islanders earlier this season at home. The Islanders are having a hell of a season and are the only team undefeated at home with a 12-0 in New York. The Golden Knights will be playing on back to back games while the Islanders are well rested and it's really hard to go against them at home. Take the Islanders.
