New York Islanders vs Montreal Canadiens prediction

The New York Islanders are the more talented team and should win this game, but are you really going to lay juice with a team that's lost 5 of heir last 6 games and cant find offense to save their lives? The Montreal Canadiens have their issues as well, and that includes not being able to score goals, but at least they're at home here. Also, the Habs have won 6 of the last 10 meetings against the Islanders, for whatever that's worth. The Canadiens aren't good, but we're to the point where we can say the same thing about the Islanders. Give me the Habs and the better price.
