Cole Caufield leads Montreal with 5 goals, Nick Suzuki has 4 assists and Jordan Harris has 19 shots on goal.

The Canadiens are 15-36 in their last 51 road games and 27-68 in their last 95 overall. The Blues are 6-1 in their last 7 Saturday games and 1-4 in their last 5 home games. The under is 5-2-1 in Canadiens last 8 overall. The over is 36-13-2 in Blues last 51 Saturday games. The Canadiens are 1-5 in the last 6 meetings in St. Louis. The home team is 6-1 in the last 7 meetings.

The Montreal Canadiens have been fade material on the road these last couple of seasons, and their offense leaves a lot to be desired up to this point. The St. Louis Blues aren’t playing their best, but we know they have a second gear they can find, and they’re usually a tough out at home. The Blues need to find their offense to cover the PL here, but give me the home team and the PL if forced to pick this contest.
