GAME OF THE MONTH (NHL)
Montreal vs. Los Angeles,
03/05/2019 22:30 EDT,
Score: 3 - 1
Money Line: -131 Montreal
The Montreal Canadiens enter Tuesday in the second wild-card slot in the Eastern Conference and had won four of six games before Saturday taking a 5-1 home loss to Pittsburgh on Saturday. They're 4-0 in their last four games playing on two days rest, 23-7 in their last 30 games following a home loss of three or more goals and 5-1 in their last six games as a road favorite.
Here the Habs will face a LA Kings side that is in a major letdown spot after snapping a 10-game losing streak with a 6-3 victory over Chicago on Saturday. "Just awesome," All-Star defenseman Drew Doughty proclaimed after the streak-busting victory. "It feels really good. But it's hard to look past all those losses we had."
I really don't expect LA to go on a run, and this looks like a more than reasonable price on a motivated Montreal team.
10* play on Montreal Canadiens.
