Rangers vs. Islanders Prediction

I’m on the Rangers here. The Rangers have flat out owned this matchup this season with wins in each of the first two meetings and while I’m normally considering throwing records out in a rivalry matchup, I just feel like the Rangers still have the edge across the board in this matchup. Give me the Rangers and the reasonable price here.
