NHL Betting: Islanders Travel to Canadiens

There's no doubt that the Montreal Canadiens are in something of a rut, winning only one game in their last eight, and that was against the Rangers, however there's hope and they'll be looking to add to that win when they take on the New York Islanders this week, making it a New York double. The Habs have recently replaced head coach Michel Therrien with Claude Julien and are at 1-1 since the change, and they'll be hoping that Carey Price keeps up his recent form, after being in somewhat of a slump for a while.

The Canadiens are now ranked 12th in offense with 2.8 goals per game however have only score more than two, twice in their last eight outings. The Islanders will however be looking forward to this Eastern Conference matchup after coming into form since the departure of head coach Jack Capuano and replacing him with Doug Weight. Since the arrival of Weight they've lifted themselves off the bottom of the conference and are now up there tied with Boston and Florida for a wildcard place out in the East.

The Islanders could well be relying on captain John Tavares who has already bagged 22 goals and 28 assists and you can get complete odds on the game over at Bovada where new members can also get a great 50% welcome bonus upon making their first deposit.
