The Montreal Canadiens and the Vancouver Canucks meet in NHL action from the Rogers Arena on Wednesday night.
The Montreal Canadiens will look to bounce back from a 2-1 loss in a shootout to Vancouver in their last matchup. Jeff Petry leads the Habs in scoring with 23 points including 9 goals and 14 assists while Tyler Toffoli has 21 points with a team-high 15 goals on the year. Nick Suzuki has 17 points with 12 assists and Brendan Gallagher has 16 points with 10 goals. Jonathan Drouin and Tomas Tatar also have 16 points apiece with a combined 25 assists between the two while Josh Anderson has 13 points with 10 goals and Jesperi Kotkaniemi has 12 points with 10 assists. Phillip Danault also has 10 assists and Shea Weber’s got 4 goals and 6 apples for his 10 points. Carey Price and Jake Allen continue to share the workload for Montreal between the pipes, with Price picking up 7 wins with a 2.69 GAA in his 15 appearances while Allen has a 4-5 record with a 2.31 GAA in his 9 appearances.
The Vancouver Canucks will look to build on their victory over Montreal last time out. Brock Boeser leads Vancouver with 28 points including 13 goals and 15 assists while J.T. Miller has 24 points with 17 assists and Quinn Hughes has 23 points with 21 assists. Elias Pettersson has 21 points with 10 goals and 11 assists and Bo Horvat’s on 20 points this year with 11 goals and 9 assists. Tyler Myers has 13 points with 10 assists and Nils Hoglander’s on 11 points with 5 goals and 6 assists this season. Thatcher Demko’s starting to see the bulk of the action in goal for Vancouver this season, posting an 8-10 record with a shutout and a 2.75 GAA through 18 appearances this season.
Montreal is 0-5 in their last 5 road games and 2-7 in their last 9 games overall while the under is 6-1-1 in their last 8 games against a team with a losing record. Vancouver is 4-1 in their last 5 games overall and 4-0 in their last 4 games against a team with a losing record while the under is 4-0 in their last 4 games as an underdog.
The under came in with ease in the last meeting and I think we’re up to seeing more of the same on Wednesday. The defense is really tightening up for Vancouver, and even when Montreal’s having off nights, the Habs usually limit the damage to 3 goals or less. I just think this could end up being another 2-1 or maybe a 3-2 game, so give me the under here.
