The Montreal Canadiens and Seattle Kraken meet Tuesday in NHL action at the Climate Pledge Arena. The Montreal Canadiens have split their last 8 games. The Seattle Kraken have won 11 of their last 14 games.

The Montreal Canadiens are averaging 3 goals per game and are scoring on 15 percent of their power play opportunities. Cole Caufield leads Montreal with 12 goals, Kirby Dach has 13 assists and Brendan Gallagher has 47 shots on goal. Defensively, the Montreal Canadiens are allowing 3.5 goals per game and are killing 80.3 percent of their opponent’s power plays. Jake Allen has given up 47 goals on 431 shots faced, and Sam Montembeault has allowed 18 goals on 230 shots.

The Seattle Kraken are averaging 3.8 goals per game and are scoring on 26.7 percent of their power play opportunities. Jared McCann leads Seattle with 11 goals, Andre Burakovsky has 16 assists, and Oliver Bjorkstrand has 62 shots on goal. Defensively, the Seattle Kraken are allowing 3 goals per game and are killing 68.9 percent of their opponent’s power plays. Philipp Grubauer has given up 21 goals on 159 shots faced, and Martin Jones has allowed 49 goals on 458 shots.

The Canadiens are 17-39 in their last 56 road games and 35-76 in their last 111 overall. The Kraken are 4-1 in their last 5 home games and 7-1 in their last 8 overall. The under is 4-1 in Canadiens last 5 overall. The under is 9-3 in Canadiens last 12 road games. The under is 7-1-1 in Kraken last 9 home games. The under is 9-3-1 in Kraken last 13 overall.

The Montreal Canadiens have allowed 12 goals in their last 2 games, and they’re on the end of a back to back with a game that included overtime. Tough spot here. The Seattle Kraken are one of the hotter teams in the league, and their offense should give a struggling defense all it can handle. The only option for me here is to side with the Kraken and the PL for max betting value.
