Monday's best NHL bet
COVERS.com

Montreal vs. Philadelphia -135, 5½

If you didn’t see either of the first two games of this series, you might look at the box scores and think Montreal had outplayed Philly. The Canadiens outshot the Flyers in both games for a combined total of 70-56.

But sometimes stats can lie and in this case, the shots aren’t telling the whole story. Philadelphia has bullied Montreal all over the ice through two games and the Flyers controlled most of the play in Game 2. After the game, the Habs complained to reporters about hitting after the whistle. Their frustration was most evident when Tom Kostopolous took a cheap-shot roughing penalty while the Flyers were celebrating after their fifth goal of the 5-2 win.

Philadelphia also blocked an incredible 23 shots in Game 2 and their power play is now 2-for-4 for 50 percent. The biggest difference might be in goaltending, though, where Montreal’s Carey Price has let in some questionable goals and has watched his save percentage dip from .925 to .875 from the last series.

With this one heading back to Philadelphia, Montreal is in trouble. The seven-game series against Boston may have taken too much out of the Canadiens to get past the Flyers and the series price is now just Montreal -125.

Pick: Flyers
