Islanders (17-13-4) +125 @ Stars (18-15-3) -145
Pick: Stars money line -145
The Stars have struggled mightily against opponents from the Metropolitan Division and are sporting a (2-5-0) record. The Islanders have fared even worse against opponents from the Central Division this season and have a (1-4-0) record to show for it. This alone makes this pick a tough one to make, however, Dallas’ top line is one of the best in the NHL and can match up against pretty much anyone. F Tyler Seguin, F Jamie Benn and F Alexander Radulov are lethal when on the ice. Look for them to exploit an Islanders team in the middle of a very long road trip. Fatigue might get the best of them in this one and we feel pretty confident that the Stars can come out on top at home.
