Islanders + 160, Avalanche -180
Tonight’s matchup pits an over performing Islanders lineup against an explosive Avalanche team that has faired decently against Metropolitan Division teams this year (5-2-2). The Landeskog - MacKinnon - Rantanen line is one of the best in the NHL and will be extremely difficult for a thin Islanders defense to contain. We believe the Avalanche will take this one although it won’t necessarily be easy with the way the Islanders have been able to keep themselves in the playoff conversation.
