New York Rangers vs New York Islanders prediction

Right when the New York Islanders show some signs of life, they lost 5 of their last 7 games and the defense continues to be a major letdown. The New York Rangers are back on track with 6 straight victories, and they're firing on all cylinders in these wins. The Rangers have also been road warriors all season long when you consider they're 16-9-3 away from home on the season. You can argue the Rangers should be bigger favorites in this spot. I'll lay the juice with the road team as the Rangers snag their seventh straight victory.
