Vancouver will host a match against Montreal within the NHL regular season. Will the Canadiens take revenge? Please find the answers in our prediction.
Vancouver could get the third victory in a row, having won over Montreal (2-1 SO). The match turned out to be ineffective, as both teams preferred to play on defence. It is worth noting the work of goalkeeper Thatcher Demko, who reflected 96% of the shots. Before this, the Canucks played twice against the Northern Division leader – Toronto, beating the Maple Leafs with a score of 3-1 and 4-2. All these matches the Canucks played at the home arena, where they had not shown the best result before – there was only one victory in six games. Thanks to the points earned, they moved up to fifth place in the table with 26 points.
Montreal continues to be on the decline, which is why they show poor results – in nine matches, they managed to get only two wins. However, it is worth noting that almost all meetings did not end at the regular time, which is why the Canadiens continue to gain points consistently. At the start of the season, the Canadians showed an excellent result, thanks to which they were at the top of the table, but due to a large number of defeats, the team lost their position. It is also worth noting that Montreal ceased to show their best side on the road – a series of defeats reached five matches.
Vancouver Canucks – Montreal Canadiens prediction
Vancouver continued their home winning series with excellent defensive performance. Indeed, the Canucks have gained a decent shape, which is noticeable when playing in defence, as the team had conceded much more goals earlier. Because Montreal is in decline, it is dangerous to bet in their favour, so it is better to give the betting preference to the hosts.
