New York Islanders vs. Vegas Golden Knights, NHL Game. The home team looks for another victory at home to forget about the bad streak they had recently. The season is good for the Knights in the Pacific Division, but the team is losing too many home games. The Islanders are in a good position in the metropolitan, but with poor results in the last six games. Things are balenced up for both teams, not big favorites, but a lot of goals are expected. Looks like a perfect opportunity for totals.
