Montreal Canadiens @ New York Rangers - [-137]
As the Canadians travel to MSG to face the Rangers this game is a real tale of opposites in the last ten games as the Rangers are hot with a 7-3 record (5-2 at home) in their last 10 games, and the Canadians are an awful 2-7-1 with an away record of 1-4. Even though the Canadians don't look great of late they still are a playoff contender with their strong goaltending and a strong four lines. Another big factor is that the Canadians are only 5-8-3 as the underdog all season which could be something to be worried about if you are betting on the team from up north. This game will be close due to these match ups usually are close but due to the form of both teams, I have to go with a win for the New York Rangers.
New York Islanders @ Detroit Red Wings - [-103]
The Red Wings try to build on their massive win over the Penguins as they host the New York Islanders in a huge clash for the eighth spot in the Eastern Conference playoff picture. The biggest stat that is shining is that the Islanders are 1-4 in away games in their last ten overall and the Wings are 2-2-1 at home in that time. Another huge stat to look at is that the Red Wings are better with both special teams in their ten which could be the biggest factor as both of these teams are pretty close and even. I see this being very close but with the Islanders having some injuries and their poor form away from home I think the Wings will JUST edge this.
