New York Islanders at Pittsburgh Penguins
Watch: 7 p.m. ET, NHL Network
Odds: Penguins -115, Islanders +110 || O/U 5.5
Pick: The Islanders arrive in Pittsburgh having won three consecutive road games. Mathew Barzal leads New York in scoring with six goals and nine helpers. Bryan Rust is hot for Pittsburgh with five goals and eight assists in the last 10 games. Each team has won on its opponent’s home rink this season, but that trend ends. Take the Penguins and the over in a highly watchable game.

Shoutout: Yesterday, we asked subscribers to predict the winner, score and first goal-scorer of Panthers-Hurricanes. Florida won 4-3 in overtime with Carolina’s Jordan Staal notching the first goal. We had the Hurricanes winning it in a close one (almost, we’re human) but we did have the over 6.5.
Kudos to repeat-winning subscriber Jason P. Dumont (@jasondumont), who is becoming a regular in this space. He predicted a Panthers 2-1 win with Staal opening the scoring. Tell us you’re placing bets on these too, Jason.
