Monday, January 14th brings you an exciting NHL matchup as Montreal travels to Boston to take on the Bruins live from the TD Garden. As the season wears on, these mid season battles between playoff contenders can really go any way, shape or form as neither team wants to concede any ground in the playoff race. This one should be especially fun to watch as these bitter rivals go head to head.
The Habs seems to be going in the wrong direction at this important juncture of the NHL season. Losers of three out of their last five they now have both the New York Islanders and the Buffalo Sabres right on their heels in the all important playoff race. A win here is of the utmost importance for Montreal.
Max Domi leads Montreal overall in points with 14 goals and 25 assists while their leading goal scorer is Brendan Gallagher who has 17 on the year. Projected starting goalie Carey Price comes in with a 17-13-4 record with a 2.67 GAA and a .910 save percentage. Overall the Habs are averaging 3 goals a game on the year while giving up an average of 3.02 goals per game.
Injury Report: RW Andrew Shaw is listed as “out” for Monday night’s game.
The Bruins come into this game winners of four of their last five games and sit tight at the 4th position in the conference at the moment. With a win on Monday night they could find some separation from Pittsburg, who currently have the same amount of points as Boston.

David Pastrnak is the Bruins overall points leader with 26 goals and 27 assists, and is the teams goal scoring leader as well.

Free Montreal Canadiens vs. Boston Bruins NHL Prediction:
Whenever these two teams clash, you are to expect fireworks of some kind and Monday night should be no exception to that rule, except this time it could bounce the Canadiens out of the playoff picture with a Boston victory.
Take Boston to win this game on home ice on Monday, a place where they’ve only lost there six times on the year, and with the current state of the Canadiens I think the W is a safe bet for the home town Bruins.
