Habs at Senators: What Bettors Need to Know
By Covers.com

Montreal Canadiens at Ottawa Senators (+104, 5)

A recent injury to starting goaltender Craig Anderson hasn’t slowed the Ottawa Senators, who are on a season-high four-game winning streak. On Sunday, the Senators host the Montreal Canadiens for the third of four meetings between the Northeast Division rivals. Ottawa had already lost first-line center Jason Spezza and top defenseman Erik Karlsson to season-ending injuries when Anderson left Thursday’s game against the New York Rangers with an ankle injury. The Senators clawed out a 3-2 shootout victory and defeated Toronto by the same score at home on Saturday to trail Montreal by two points for the Northeast Division lead.

The Canadiens have points in their last seven games - with the only blemish being a 4-3 overtime loss to the New York Islanders on Thursday. Montreal starting goaltender Carey Price made 17 saves against the Rangers on Saturday for his second shutout in four starts, while Max Pacioretty has seven points his last five games - including his first four goals of the season. Rookie Alex Galchenyuk had a goal and an assist against the Rangers. Selected third overall in the 2012 draft, Galchenyuk has four points in as many games and 12 on the season.

ABOUT THE CANADIENS (12-4-2): Pacioretty did not receive any additional punishment from the league on Sunday following his boarding penalty on Rangers defenseman Ryan McDonagh. Rookie Brendan Gallagher returned to the lineup on Saturday after missing three games with a concussion. Gallagher has five goals and eight points in 14 games. Tomas Plekanec leads the team with eight goals and is tied with Pacioretty for the team lead in points (13). David Desharnais has five points in his last five games. Raphael Diaz leads team defensemen with 12 points.

ABOUT THE SENATORS (11-6-2): Colin Greening, who scored the winning goal and added two assists on Saturday, has five points on his three-game scoring streak. Greening went eight games without recording a point prior to this streak. Captain Daniel Alfredsson has four points in his last six games. Rookies Jakob Silfverberg and Mika Zibanejad have both contributed three points on Ottawa’s winning streak. Backup goaltender Ben Bishop has wins in his last three games.

TRENDS:

* The home team is 5-0 in the last five meetings.
* The under is 5-1 in Canadiens’ last six overall.
* The under is 3-0-1 in Senators’ last four Monday games.
* Senators are 5-1 in their last six after allowing two goals or less in their previous game.

OVERTIME:

1. The Senators defeated the Canadiens 5-1 at home on Jan. 30, but lost 2-1 in Montreal four days later.

2. Canadiens D P.K. Subban has eight points in 12 games since rejoining the team following a contract dispute. Montreal is 8-2-2 this season with Subban in the lineup.

3. Alfredsson, who is seven points away from reaching 1,100 for his career, has 104 points in 87 career games against the Canadiens.

Monday's NHL Betting Notes
By Covers.com

Check out our betting notes on all five NHL games on tap Monday:

Toronto Maple Leafs at Philadelphia Flyers (-141, 5.5)

Probable starting goaltenders: Ben Scrivens (TOR), Ilya Bryzgalov (PHI)

The Flyers, who have won three of their last four contests, will look to avenge a disheartening 5-2 loss to Toronto on Feb. 11. Toronto was off to a blistering start away from the Air Canada Centre, but has dropped three of its last four to see its mark dip to 7-4-0. Flyers F Jakub Voracek has collected four goals and eight assists in his last five contests. The 12-point effort in the five-game stretch is the first by a member of the Flyers since Peter Forsberg in 2005. The over is 4-1 in the last five meetings.

Montreal Canadiens at Ottawa Senators (+118, 5)

Probable starting goaltenders: Carey Price (MTL), Ben Bishop (OTT)

A recent injury to starting goaltender Craig Anderson hasn’t slowed the Ottawa Senators, who are on a season-high four-game winning streak. The Senators clawed out a 3-2 shootout victory and defeated Toronto by the same score at home on Saturday to trail Montreal by two points for the Northeast Division lead. The Canadiens have points in their last seven games - with the only blemish being a 4-3 overtime loss to the New York Islanders on Thursday. The Senators defeated the Canadiens 5-1 at home on Jan. 30, but lost 2-1 in Montreal four days later. The home team is 5-0 in the last five meetings.

Dallas Stars at Nashville Predators (-158, 5)

Probable starting goaltenders: Cristopher Nilstorp (DAL), Pekka Rinne (NSH)

The Predators are having trouble finding the back of the net. Nashville failed to score over the weekend, dropping a 1-0 decision to the Vancouver Canucks at home on Friday and falling 4-0 on the road to the Detroit Red Wings the following night. Dallas has scored three or more goals in nine consecutive games since being blanked by the Phoenix Coyotes on Feb. 2, going 6-3-0 in those contests. The under is 11-2-3 in the Predators’ last 16 home games.

Edmonton Oilers at Chicago Blackhawks (-177, 5.5)

Probable starting goaltenders: Nikolai Khabibulin (EDM), Ray Emery (CHI)

Chicago has gone 24 consecutive games without a regulation loss, dating back to last season. Blackhawks G Ray Emery is 7-0-0 this season and has won four straight starts. Edmonton has benefited from the recent resurgence of veteran G  Nikolai Khabibulin. In four games this season, Khabibulin is 2-2-0 with a 1.89 goals-against average and .942 save percentage. Keep in mind Oilers F Taylor Hall (suspension) won't be available for this one. The under is 9-1-1 in the Blackhawks’ last 11 home games.

Anaheim Ducks at Los Angeles Kings (-140, 5)

Probable starting goaltenders: Viktor Fasth (ANH), Jonathan Quick (LAK)

The Anaheim Ducks attempt to extend their winning streak to seven games when they visit the Kings. Los Angeles is looking to avenge a 7-4 loss at Anaheim on Feb. 2, a game in which it erased three deficits but never led. The Kings have won three in a row and five of six, allowing one goal in each of the victories. Los Angeles is 6-0 in its last six Monday games.
