Carolina Hurricanes vs New York Islanders Prediction

Normally I’m all about the value in spots like these as I’m not trying to lay juice with an Islanders team that’s lost 5 in a row against a Hurricanes team that’s won the last 7 meetings with New York. However, the goaltending situation in Carolina is a disaster right now and I’m not getting enough plus money to take a flyer on a goaltender in Nedeljkovic that’s just in a bad spot, being forced into the big league crease before he’s really ready. I think this is a perfect opportunity for the Islanders to get a bounce-back win, so I’ll lay the juice with the Islanders here.
