The Montreal Canadiens will look to continue their historic run and win for a 10th straight time. They’ll have to go on the road and defeat their rival, the Vancouver Canucks.
The Canucks are looking to rebound after losing four straight games.
The Montreal Canadiens has been led by Max Pacioretty on the offensive side and Carey Price has led on the defensive side.
Pacioretty has scored seven goals in the nine games along with four assists on the year. Meanwhile, Price is 7-0 and has only allowed nine goals for an outstanding 1.29 GAA.
Tomas Plekanec has been Pacioretty’s right hand man as Plekanec has manned center ice scoring ten points overall. P.K. Subban and Andrei Markov have also scored ten points, as well.
Montreal can do no wrong, but they have struggled in Vancouver as they have lost nine times in their last twelve meetings in Vancouver. Eventually, Montreal is going to slip a bit.
The Vancouver Canucks have lost four straight games, but don’t pin the wrap on Ryan Miller.
Miller has been fantastic between the pipes as his GAA is 2.09. It’s also worth mentioning Miller is 26-12-6 with a 2.33 GAA against the Canadiens.
Miller and the Canucks defense has been fine, they just need to generate some offense.
The Canucks have all the pieces of a good offense, but they just haven’t clicked yet. Radim Vrbata scored 31 goals last year, but has only found the back of the net once so far after eight games.
Vrbata needs to get go along with Daniel and Henrik Sedin. The Sedin Brothers have only scored five and four points, respectively.
One bright spot for Vancouver on the offensive end is Brandon Sutter. Sutter leads the team with six points, three goals and three assists.

This is a case of buying low on the Vancouver Canucks and selling high on the Montreal Canadiens. Are the Canadiens a better team? Yes, they are. But, can the Canadiens keep up this pace? No. Eventually, they will come and lose a game. I’m banking it will come against their bitter rival on the road.
4* Free NHL Betting Pick: Vancouver Canucks +115
The Vancouver Canucks are on a losing streak and the Montreal Canadiens are on a nine game winning streak. The Canucks had three days off, are at home, and are plus money.
The Canadiens will eventually lose a game and the Canucks will eventually win a game at home. I view the Canucks as a nice value pick.
