This is a 10* play UNDER Montreal-NY Islanders
The Habs and Islanders, especially the Islanders, are two of the biggest surprise teams in the league this year. Few thought either would be playoff bound coming into the season, let alone the possibility of both making it. Both are coming off wins and between them, they allowed just one goal. The Islanders shutout Columbus 2-0 and are in second place in the Metropolitan with 87 points. Montreal beat Detroit 3-1 to move into a tie with Columbus for the final Wild Card spot. So this is a big game. The Islanders lead the league in goals allowed with only 168. That's 12 fewer than every other team but one (Dallas). Montreal is middle of the pack in goals scored and goals allowed (14th in both categories), but ranks dead last on the power play, which is a problem. Because they rank only 20th in goals per game, NY is one of the top Under teams in the league. The Canadiens will have Carey Price in goal tonight and he has solid career numbers vs. the Islanders. This should be a very low-scoring game. Play UNDER Montreal-NY Islanders
