Four out of five ain’t bad but anything other than a regulation win has been an abnormality for the Canadiens this year. Carey Price will resume his position in the starting net tonight looking to push his undefeated streak to 11. No. 31 has not made a start against the Panthers since the 2014-15 season when he went 2-0-1 against the Florida club with a .928 save percentage.
- The Canadiens are 7-1 in their last 8 games with 1 day off between games.
- The total has gone OVER in 6 of the Panthers’ last 7 games against teams with winning records.
- The total has gone UNDER in the Canadiens’ last 4 games at home against teams with losing records.
Betting value is going to be tough to come by in this one unless that is, you think the unbeatable Carey Price will all of the sudden become human again. A wager to consider could be a Canadiens’ puckline bet as Montreal is currently the second most profitable puckline team in the league – just behind the Rangers.
The Panthers, on the other hand, are just 6-9 on the puckline this season and have lost $100 bettors that have backed their puckline every game have lost more than $300. Additionally, the Panthers are just 1-4-1 on the road this season and have scored just 1.83 goals per game away from home – and those games were against human goaltenders.
Florida’s three-game winning streak against the Canadiens is likely to end at the Bell Centre this evening.
