Randy’s Free Pick
I’ve given the Islanders the benefit of the doubt a lot this season, and they continue to let me down. The Islanders aren’t winning games, and these losses are putting them deep in the red in terms of money earned on the year. The Senators are less attractive, but at least they’re at home here and their offense can come to life out of nowhere. Give me the home team if forced to pick.
