The Islanders have had the bulk of the success this season but you can probably imagine that the Bruins won’t take it being that way for much longer. With that said, both teams have found themselves in play-off type, defensive battles as of late and I think this game could end up being no different. I envision this game finishing 2-1 whichever way you slice it, potentially going to OT, so give me the under here.
