Detroit Red Wings vs New York Islanders Prediction

I get why the plus money with Detroit would be tempting as the Wings are coming off of a win and New York slumping lately, losing four straight. However, a quarter of Detroit’s win this season have come against Montreal, and the Red Wings are 11-43-4 against the rest of the league this season. It’s not like New York’s losses are coming to bad teams, as Colorado, Arizona, Vegas and Nashville (all on the road mind you) are teams in or near a playoff position. I think this is a good spot for the Islanders to rebound, so I’ll side with the Islanders on the puck line here.
