New Jersey Devils vs Vegas Golden Knights prediction

The New Jersey Devils have had success on the road this season, but they've been hit or miss all year, so it's hard to predict which team is going to show up. Right now, the Devils are ice-cold. The Vegas Golden Knights are one of the better home teams in the league, which includes a 20-10-2 record. The Devils have won 3 of the last 4 games against the Golden Knights, but I still can't trust them, especially on the road against good teams. The line is reasonable. Give me Vegas.
