The Montreal Canadiens welcome the Philadelphia Flyers to town for a Saturday NHL tilt.
The Philadelphia Flyers have won three of four after outscoring visiting Boston 4-3 on Wednesday. Peter Cehlarik scored twice for Boston with David Pastrnak adding a marker. Brad Marchand and Torey Krug added a pair of assists each for the Bruins while Jaroslav Halak was charged with four goals on 19 shots to get the loss.
The Flyers received a hat trick from Sean Couturier with Oskar Lindholm also finding the back of the net. Philadelphia saw Claude Giroux and Ivan Provorov assist twice each while Carter Hutton stopped 39 shots to get the win.
The Montreal Canadiens are riding a four game winning streak after downing Columbus 4-1 on the road Friday. Oliver Bjorkstrand scored in the third period for the Blue Jackets with Joonas Korpisalo allowing three goals on 25 shots to get the loss.
The Canadiens received a pair of first period goals from Tomas Tater with Joel Armia lighting the lamp twice in the third. Shea Weber and Max Domi gave Montreal two helpers each with Carey Price getting the win for the Habs with 34 stops.
Flyers are 0-4 in their last 4 road games vs. a team with a winning home record and Flyers are 0-5 in their last 5 Saturday games and Flyers are 1-10 in their last 11 road games. Under is 6-0 in Canadiens last 6 home games and under is 4-0 in Canadiens last 4 in the fourth game of a 4-in-6 days situation and under is 9-0 in Canadiens last 9 overall. Flyers are 4-0 in the last 4 meetings and Flyers are 1-6 in the last 7 meetings in Montreal and home team is 22-5 in the last 27 meetings.
I am going with the hotter team in Montreal but I’m torn about betting this with Price not playing…
