The New York Islanders can't get out of their own way with 6 straight losses and things likely aren't going to improve on the end of a back to back with a game that included overtime. Tired legs, for sure. The Seattle Kraken are due for a win, and at home with the rest advantage is a good recipe to stop the bleeding. I'll lay the cheap juice with the Kraken on their home ice.
