Detroit Red Wings vs New York Islanders
Game: Detroit Red Wings – New York Islanders
Bet: Islanders to win
Red wings are hosting the Islanders on Monday.
Detroit is one of the bottom teams in NHL right now. They have some exciting prospects like Hronek, Hirose, Cholowski and Zadina but right now they're just not ready jet. This year they mostly depended on their top line of Larkin, Mantha and Bertuzzi for scoring. But even with them they underachieved. They are currently riding a 9 game losing streak. Things really fell apart when Matha got injured 4 games ago. In those games they scored only 3 goals while allowing a whoping 19.
New York Islanders on the other hand are one of the better teams in the league. They don't play exciting hockey, but are extremely well organized under coach Barry Trotz. They won 6 out of their last 10 games, so their form is not ideal but it should still be enough for Detroit.
Given that Islanders are very solid in defense and Detroit is having a hard time scoring goals I'm confident the pick will win.
