The Canucks fly to Montreal from Boston after late comeback loss to the Bruins on Sunday. How will they fare against this Montreal Canadiens team on no rest, after a heartbreaker in TD Garden?
Vancouver is in a major slump as of late, as they’ve only won once in their last 10 games. Reason for their troubles, mainly has been defense and goaltending.
Offensively, The Canucks have actually been producing shots, they just haven’t capitalized. For example, Vancouver is currently shooting 33.6 shots per game, which ranks a respectable 8th in the NHL.
However, they’re only scoring an average of 2.3 goals per outing, which ranks a horrible 29th. Moreover, Vancouver hasn’t had much success on the powerplay, only capitalizing on 16 % of extra man chances.
Unfortunately on the defensive powerplay, Vancouver is ranked dead last. They’re currently allowing teams to score on an alarming 37.7% of their powerplays.
Furthermore, The Canucks are are permitting squads to shoot 31.9 shots a game, producing an average of 3.3 goals against. Per NHL rankings, these place 19th and 27th sadly.
The Montreal Canadiens have finally listened to the fans, and fired General Manager Marc Bergevin. Does this give the squad some momentum, or a reason to stutter some more?
On the offensive glass, Montréal’s only scoring an average of 2.3 goals per outing, on 30.0 shots. Therefore, ranking a paltry 21st on shots, and 28th on goals.
Defensively, The Canadiens haven’t played much better, allowing a whopping 3.6 goals on 32.9 shots per game. Not unlike their opponent, they’re allowing teams to score on a startling 31.4% of their powerplays.
Important to note, ever since all star goaltender Carey Price went out with injury, these backups have faltered severely.

Free Vancouver Canucks vs. Montreal Canadiens NHL Prediction
Vancouver can’t get anything going recently, and even when they’re ahead, they unfortunately find a way to lose. The Canadiens have the same sad story, with front office drama to boot.
However, Montreal has destroyed Vancouver in the last 5 years at home, and shouldn’t change tomorrow with no rest for The Canucks. This Monday night tilt may be a shootout, with two bad defenses, and a tired road team.
