Montreal is just 1-4 in their last 5 against Atlanta and 1-4 in their last 5 in Atlanta. The Thrashers have won their last 6 games as a home underdog while Montreal has lost 4 of their last 5 as a road favorite. My pick is with the Thrashers at home as they should have a boost in play and Montreal is struggling right now, especially on the road.
