Montreal Canadiens DFS Spin

Carey Price stopped 26 of 30 shots in a 4-1 loss to Vegas in Game 1 Monday night. It wasn't Price's best showing, but to be fair he did make some great saves along the way and with another netminder between the pipes, this might have turned into a blowout loss for the Canadiens. Still, it is the case that Montreal is going to need him to be at his very best if they're going to overcome the Golden Knights in the semifinals. Price allowed at least a goal in each period, including two goals on 13 shots in the second frame.

Vegas Golden Knights DFS Spin

Marc-Andre Fleury turned aside 28 of 29 shots in a 4-1 victory against Montreal in Game 1. It was yet another amazing performance from Fleury in the 2021 playoffs. The only goal he allowed in this contest was scored during a Canadiens power play. He improved to 9-4 with a 1.84 GAA and .927 save percentage in 13 playoff starts this year.

Canadiens vs. Golden Knights Game 2 NHL Prediction

The over is 5-0-1 in the last six meetings between these two teams and is 3-0-1 in the last four meetings in Vegas. The over is also 4-1-1 in the Golden Knights’ last six home games, is 4-1-1 in their last six games coming off a win and is 4-0-1 in their last five games as a home favorite.
