Carolina Hurricanes vs New York Islanders prediction

Right when it looked like the Islanders were turning the corner, they drop four straight games and put a serious damper on their playoff chase. The Carolina Hurricanes remain one of the most consistent teams in the league, and they've been on a tear offensively as of late. It's usually a fun, high scoring game when the Canes and Islanders clash, but the Hurricanes are the far safer bet. It's hard seeing the Islanders stop the bleeding against one of the best teams in the league. Give me the Canes and the cheap price.
