Preview

The Montreal Canadiens hit the road and will visit the Ottawa Senators at the Canadian Tire Centre on Monday night. These teams already faced each other last month in Montreal where the Senators took the win 5-1.

The Canadiens have won their last 3 games and are 5-3 at home so far this season with a 8-6-1 record overall ranking 6th in the Atlantic division. They're coming from a 5-4 win in overtime at home against the Penguins. Mike Hoffman scored 63 seconds into overtime for the win. Nick Suzuki scored one goal and added one assist, Josh Anderson and Cole Caufield also scored for the Canadiens, who boosted their winning streak to three games. Jake Allen allowed four goals and made 19 saves.

Nick Suzuki leads the Canadiens with 10 goals, 9 total assists and has 19 points. Kirby Dach is leading the team in assists with 10.

In their last 10 games the Canadiens are 5-5, averaging 3.2 goals, 4.9 assists, 4.4 penalties and 11 penalty minutes while allowing 3.5 goals per game with an .871 save percentage.

Ottawa Senators

The Senators have won 4 of their last 5 games and are 6-7 at home so far this season. They have a 10-13-1 record overall ranking 8th in the Atlantic division. The Senators have a 10-4-1 record when scoring at least three goals.

In their last 10 games the Senators are 5-4-1, averaging 2.7 goals, 4.6 assists, four penalties and 9.8 penalty minutes while giving up 2.8 goals per game.

 

BETTING TRENDS

Montreal are 1-7 SU in their last 8 games.

Montreal are 4-1 SU in their last 5 games against Ottawa.

Montreal are 0-7 SU in their last 7 games on the road.

The total has gone UNDER in 5 of Montreal's last 5 games when playing on the road against Ottawa.

The total has gone UNDER in 8 of Ottawa's last 12 games.

Ottawa are 7-13 SU in their last 20 games.

The total has gone UNDER in 9 of Ottawa's last 10 games against Montreal.

Ottawa are 2-8 SU in their last 10 games at home.

 

Prediction

The Canadiens are definitely the worst team in the league this season and have won only 2 games on the road so far. The Senators have been up and down this season and are allowing 3.3 goals per game. With the Canadiens allowing over 4 goals per game I like the over on this one.
