The Calgary Flames and the Montreal Canadiens meet in NHL action from the Bell Centre on Monday night.

The Calgary Flames will try to rebound from a 5-4 OT loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs in their last game. Elias Lindholm leads the Flames in scoring with 23 points including 9 goals and 14 assists while Tyler Toffoli has 20 points with 10 goals and 10 assists and Rasmus Andersson has 20 points with a team-high 16 assists. Nazem Kadri also has 21 points split between 11 goals and 10 assists this season. Jacob Markstrom’s gone 8-7-2 with a 2.93 GAA and an .891 save percentage while Dan Vladar is 5-4-2 with a 2.81 GAA and a .905 save percentage between the pipes for Calgary this season.

The Montreal Canadiens will look to rebound from a 4-2 loss to Montreal in their last game. Nick Suzuki has a team-high 29 points with 14 goals and 15 assists while Cole Caufield also has 25 points with 16 goals of his own and Kirby Dach has 19 points with 15 assists of his own on the year. Jake Allen is 8-10 with a 3.40 GAA and an .896 save percentage while Sam Montembault is 5-2-2 with a 2.97 GAA and a .908 save percentage between the pipes for Montreal this season.

Calgary is 5-16 in their last 21 road games and 2-6 in their last 8 games against the Atlantic division while the under is 4-1 in their last 5 road games. Montreal is 17-37 in their last 54 home games and 7-19 in their last 26 games against the Pacific division while the under is 6-2 in their last 8 games overall.

I get the case to be made either way here, but it’s hard to pass up this plus money with Montreal. Calgary’s been brutal on the road this season and the Habs have actually won the last four meetings between these two teams. Calgary shouldn’t be this heavily favored. Give me the Canadiens and the plus money.
