In a game from NHL, we will see Montreal Canadiens at Boston Bruins.
The Montreal Canadiens are entering this game after winning their last one with a dominant performance, 3-0. It was a great performance on defense, shutting down the opponent and the goalie Price improved to 17-13-4 on the year with a 2.67 GAA and a .910 save percentage. The Canadiens’ point leader Max Domi is in a bit of a slump at the moment, scoring just 2 goals in the last 6 games and he will certainly be looking to rebound.
The Boston Bruins bounced back from their loss to Washington with a very important 3-2 win over the Toronto Maple Leafs. The Bruins are on a great streak, winning 6 of their last 7 games. Jaroslav Halak and Tuukka Rask have been rotated between the sticks. The team possesses a great defense, allowing just 2.6 goals per game while the offense contributes to 2.9 per game.
The Bruins are on a roll at the moment and even though they will face a confident Canadiens team, I cannot pick against them. They have better players and they will be playing in front of their own fans.
