Islanders vs Blue Jackets prediction

The Blue Jackets are coming off massive upset wins over the Avs and Penguins, but they’ve had trouble sustaining success all season, so I wouldn’t get your hopes up. The Islanders are still in the thick of the playoff race, and they’ve quietly won 3 of their last 4 games with an improved effort defensively. The Islanders have won 8 of the last 9 games against the Blue Jackets, and that includes outscoring them 9-3 in the last two games. The Islanders are the better team, have motivation on their side, and have owned the H2H. Give me the Islanders, and I’ll take the PL to shave down the price.
