It’s been over 20 years since the Montreal Canadiens last won the Stanley Cup. But for now, the Canadiens (26-12-2-1) are flying high – they’re the most profitable team in the NHL
when it comes to the puck line at 25-16 ATS, raking in 14.17 betting units. Next up for the Habs is Wednesday night’s road game against the Columbus Blue Jackets (18-19-2-1), who are near the bottom of the money pile at 21-19 ATS and 10.95 units in the red. Game time is 7:00 PM ET.
Montreal skates into Cowtown having lost back-to-back games. It’s been something of a rollercoaster ride this year, but there have been more ups than downs. The Habs are third in the league at 2.29 goals allowed per game. Carey Price is fourth in save percentage at .928, which is good because Montreal allows 30.5 shots per game. That’s No. 23 out of the 30 teams.
The Jackets, also in a two-game mini-slump, are even looser at 33.4 shots allowed per game (No. 27 overall). But with Sergei Bobrovsky (.914 SV%) as their No. 1 goalie, they’re giving up 3.25 goals per game. Only four teams have been more porous this year.
