An Eastern Conference game is scheduled for Wednesday night when the Montreal Canadians (31-43-6, 14-23-3 away) visit the New York Islanders (41-31-9, 24-13-3 home). Montreal wants Connor Bedard and sit at the bottom of the Atlantic Division, while the Islanders have it all to play for. If the Islanders win this game they will eliminate the Penguins and grab the final Eastern Conference Wild Card spot. Below is my NHL pick for the Canadians vs Islanders.

Montreal Canadians vs New York Islanders Betting Pick

The Pick: New York Islanders -362

This game will be played at UBS Arena at 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday, April 12, 2023.

Why Bet the New York Islanders:

✅ New York has been good at home this season and have won four of their last five games at UBS Arena.

✅ Montreal has no interest in winning and they have lost five of their last six games played.

✅ The Canadians are also bad on the road as they have lost four of their last five games away from Montreal.

Montreal Canadians are Ready for this Season to be Over

The Canadians have no interest in winning games right now and that showed in their last game when they lost 7-1 against the Toronto Maple Leafs. Montreal has lost five of their last six games played and want to increase their Connor Bedard odds as much as possible the rest of the regular season.

Montreal is scoring 2.76 goals per game and allow 3.70 goals this season. There have ben no bright spots for the Canadians this season, but Nick Suzuki leads the way with 40 assists and 64 points. Cole Caufield has a team high 26 goals.

The New York Islanders are Battling for their Playoff Lives

New York is struggling of late, but they are right on the edge of qualifying for the playoffs. The Islanders have lost three of their last five games, but they have started getting it going a bit, having won two of their last three games played.

The Islanders are scoring 2.94 goals per game and allow 2.65 goals on the year. Brock Nelson has done it all for New York this season as he leads the team with 34 goals, 39 assists, and 73 points.
