I like new york in this spot. The Islanders are atop the Metro Division and they have won three of their last four games, but I still like the Blue Jackets to take this one. Columbus is a solid home team and they have won their last four games in a row, outscoring their foes 17-8 in the process. The Blue Jackets have been hot in the crease of late and the Islanders cant score. Lastly, we note that the favorite has gone 19-7 the last 26 games in this series and the home team has won eight of the last 10 games.
My Pick: Columbus -145
- 45 Agree
Elite Sports NY: New York Islanders end Blue Jackets' winning streak, 3-0, pad Metro lead (Highlights)
In their most complete victory of the season, the New York Islanders set the tone towards their potential playoff opponent in the Columbus Blue Jackets.
The Islanders got the push-back response they were looking for and then some after a 3-1 regulation loss to the Buffalo Sabres.
Casey Cizikas drove the offense while the Islanders got back to their shutdown-style of defense and Thomas Greiss made all 31 saves.

There's a good chance we see Casey Cizikas shoot in the first three frames of the next Islanders' shootout after tonight.

Newsday: Barry Trotz says Islanders-Blue Jackets will have a 'playoff feel'
COLUMBUS, Ohio - All players glance at the standings. So there's no downplaying the importance of the Thursday night's game at Nationwide Arena between the Islanders and Blue Jackets.
The Metropolitan Division-leading Islanders, who lost, 3-1, at Buffalo on Tuesday night, lead the third-place Blue Jackets, seeking to match a season-high five-game winning streak, by five points as the teams meet for the second time.
"To me, this is going to have a playoff feel," Islanders coach Barry Trotz said. "These games have a four-point feel. They have playoff implications. It could be a team we meet in the playoffs.
