NHL Prediction: Montreal Canadiens vs New York Islanders

NHL Prediction: Montreal Canadiens vs New York Islanders

Montreal Canadiens: Rock solid first quarter start

After a rock solid 15-4-2 season start, Montreal’s 32 points is tied for first with the New York Rangers in the Eastern Conference. Red-hot on offense, the Canadiens 74 goals scored is tied with the Dallas Stars as the top mark in the NHL – eleven goals better than the Rangers who have lit the lamp 63 times so far this season. Surviving a scare, after they lost All Star goaltender Carey Price (8-2-0 GAA 2.11) to a “lower body” injury, the Canadiens went 5-2-2 during the nine games Price missed. Price is now back to full health and he was solid in his first game back as the Islanders outshot the Habs by a 36-28 margin on Friday at the Barclays Center. The Canadiens are one of the deepest teams in the league.

New York Islanders: Struggling after a hot start to their 2015-16 season

Hot out of the NHL starting gate with a 6-2-1 record, New York has regressed some as the Islanders are just 4-5-2 over their last eleven games. The Islanders have been streaky in November (4-5-0) as their four wins have been by a 15-6 margin while their five losses have been by a 15-7 final count. New York sits eighth in the NHL in both goals for (57) and goals against (48) and their +8 goals differential is the fifth best mark in the league. The Islanders have not been good against the Canadiens as Montreal has won nine of the last ten matches by a 31-16 margin. Thomas Greiss (5-2-2 GAA 2.74) gets the call in net for New York. Greiss replaced starter Jaroslav Halak in the Islanders loss on Friday.

Islanders vs Canadiens NHL Call: Back Montreal with a 500 unit money line wager.
