Golden Knights vs. Canadiens NHL Betting Odds

Last season’s semi-final went six games and they played the under in every one of them. Looking back a little further to their past 10 meetings, Montreal has covered the spread nine times and only lost two games. A whopping 90 percent of bettors are siding with Vegas tonight.

The Canadiens’ offence is currently 17th in the league, scoring on average two goals a game. Their power play has been awful. Despite this, they are 5-2 to the over in the past seven and have only covered the spread four times all year.

The Knights have not done much offensively either, sitting at 13th with only 2.5 goals per game. They have split the over/under 5-5 so far, covering the spread just three times.

Vegas Golden Knights

Las Vegas’ Eastern Conference road trip makes its final Canadian stop in Montreal tonight. After starting the year 1-4, the Golden Knights turned up the heat, winning four of their past five and bringing them to 5-5.

Robin Lehner held the Senators to one goal on Thursday night, stopping 38 shots leading his team to a 5-1 win. Jonathan Marchessault scored two goals, doubling his total to four. Defenceman Alex Pietrangelo added his first of the year as they rolled over Ottawa.

Key injuries have allowed Chandler Stephenson to step up and lead the team in points. Stephenson’s 10 points in as many games has been huge in the absence of Mark Stone, William Karlsson, Max Pacioretty and Nolan Patrick.

Montreal Canadiens

The Canadiens were getting embarrassed and were down 5-0 after the first two periods of Thursday night’s game against the Islanders. Nick Suzuki sniped a goal and set up another in the third period to make it 5-2 before the Isle’s put one in the empty net.

Suzuki has put the Habs offence on his back over the past two games with two goals and three assists.

Carey Price has been away from the team since the start of the year, but recently announced that he would be back training with the team by Monday. Price has just enough time to make a return and impress Team Canada’s Olympic coaches if he wants to be the goalie in China this February.

Cedric Pacquette’s two game suspension has been served and he will be available to them tonight. Jonathan Drouin also took his regular spot at practice and is expected to return.
