The Montreal Canadiens have won their last five games against the New York Islanders -- a trend that will inspire plenty of confidence in Habs backers when they take on the Isles in La Belle Province Sunday evening.
- The Canadiens are 11-2 SU in their last 13 games against the Eastern Conference.
- The Islanders are 3-7 SU in their last 10 games as underdogs.
- The Islanders are 1-7 SU in their last eight games against the Eastern Conference.
Bettors backing the favorites in this series have been coming up empty handed as of late. Underdogs have paid out in five out of the last six times the Canadiens and Islanders have collided.
The Canadiens (15-4-1) have looked like one of the best squads in the NHL in the 2015/16 campaign while performing especially well at home. Montreal is 8-2-1 on home ice on the season.
