Kraken vs. Islanders Prediction

I’m on the Islanders here. It’s just a lot easier for me to trust New York given what we’ve seen from the Islanders post all-star break. Seattle’s back to having scoring issues and it’s just extremely hard to trust them when the offense isn’t coming along. The Islanders were playing fairly well before the loss to Calgary and I think they bounce back here. Give me the Islanders.
