The Vegas Golden Knights and Montreal Canadiens meet Saturday in NHL action at the Bell Centre. The Vegas Golden Knights look to build on their 6-game winning streak. The Montreal Canadiens look for a win after splitting their last 8 games.

The Vegas Golden Knights are averaging 3.33 goals per game and are scoring on 21.1 percent of their power play opportunities. Jonathan Marchessault leads Vegas with 5 goals, Alex Pietrangelo has 9 assists and Jack Eichel has 42 shots on goal. Defensively, the Vegas Golden Knights are allowing 1.92 goals per game and are killing 78.6 percent of their opponent’s power plays. Logan Thompson has given up 16 goals on 241 shots faced, and Adin Hill has allowed 7 goals on 116 shots.

The Montreal Canadiens are averaging 2.73 goals per game and are scoring on 12.9 percent of their power play opportunities. Cole Caufield leads Montreal with 7 goals, Nick Suzuki has 7 assists and Brendan Gallagher has 26 shots on goal.

The Golden Knights are 6-1 in their last 7 road games and 6-0 in their last 6 overall. The Canadiens are 10-25 in their last 35 home games and 28-70 in their last 98 overall. The under is 6-1-2 in Golden Knights last 9 overall. The under is 4-1 in Canadiens last 5 overall. The Golden Knights are 2-5 in the last 7 meetings in Montreal. The underdog is 9-3 in the last 12 meetings.

The Vegas Golden Knights have been money up to this point and simply aren’t a team I’m eager to step in front of during this hot streak. Vegas is playing elite level hockey at both ends of the ice, especially on the defensive side. The Montreal Canadiens already have scoring issues as it is, so I doubt this is the game where they find their rhythm. Give me Vegas and the PL for max betting value.
