The Pittsburgh Penguins have had recent success against the Islanders, but they've struggled lately on the road. The New York Islanders are a team I blindly back, as I've said many times in the past, as you know what you're getting with this club in terms of great coaching and solid defensive effort. The Islanders are just one of those teams I have a hard time betting against as long as the price is reasonable. Give me the Islanders.
