Tuesday, January 15th brings you an NHL matchup between two Eastern Conference foes as the Florida Panthers travel to the Centre Bell to face off against the Montreal Canadiens. Florida is coming off a lopsided loss in Vancouver on Sunday, losing that game 5-1, while Montreal was last in action Monday night against Boston, but those results were not available yet.
The Panthers got obliterated in their recent Western Canadian road trip, losing to Vancouver, Calgary and Edmonton, and have now lost a total of six games in a row. Florida’s last win came in a shoot out victory over Detroit way back on December 31st. Safe to say, the Panthers will have their paws full on Tuesday night.
Florida’s points leader is Jonathan Huberdeau who has 12 goals and 35 assists, while their leading goal scorer is Mike Hoffman who has 21 goals on the year. Projected starting goalie Roberto Luongo comes in with a 8-11-1 record, a 3.34 GAA and a .892 save percentage. Overall, Florida is averaging 3.14 goals per game while giving up an average of 3.64 goals per game.
Injury Report: Centers Vincent Trockeck and Derek MacKenzie as well as LW Jamie McGinn are all listed as “out” for Tuesday night.
Prior to Monday nights showdown with Boston, the Canadiens had only won two out of their last five games, but this game is at home, and the Habs play well at the Centre Bell with a 12-9-2 home record. Plus it’s always nice to get an easy opponent for the second game of a back to back, so look for Montreal to come out firing at the Florida goalie.
Max Domi is Montreal’s points leader with 14 goals and 25 assists. Brandon Gallagher leads the team with 17 goals. Projected starting goalie Carey Price comes in with a 17-13-4 record, a 2.67 GAA and a .910 save percentage. Montreal is scoring an average of 3.00 goals per game while giving up an average of 3.02 goals per game.
Injury Report: RW Andrew Shaw is listed as “out” for Tuesday night.

Free Florida Panthers vs. Montreal Canadiens NHL Prediction:
Even though this is the second game of a back to back for the Montreal Canadiens, you still have to give them the edge in this game. Florida is on a six game losing streak, and they just aren’t a quality hockey team at this point in the season.
Take Montreal to win this game on home ice. Those tired legs should have enough left in them to over take a struggling Florida team.
4* Free NHL Betting Pick: Montreal -1.5.
