Vegas Golden Knights vs New York Islanders prediction

The Vegas Golden Knights haven't been great on the road, so I can understand why some would be hesitant here, but the New York Islanders are in terrible form at the moment and not a team I'm willing to get behind. The New York Islanders have lost 8 of their last 11 games, and their offensive production usually lets them down. Also, the Golden Knights just beat the Islanders about two weeks ago by a score of 5-2. I want nothing to do with the Islanders if we're being honest. Give me Vegas and the more than reasonable price.
