Ottawa Senators vs. New York Islanders, 7PM ET (View Matchup)
The home team has won 7 of the last 9 in this series and the favorite has won 5 of the last 7. Ottawa is just 1-6 in their last 7 road games and 1-5 in their last 6 against a team with a losing record. My pick is with the Islanders at home as they are slightly better of the two evils and Ottawa has been awful at finding the net.
