Chicago is 2-0-1 on the season after Monday night's 4-3 overtime loss at Toronto. Montreal comes in at 1-2-0 after a 2-0 shutout loss at the Rangers Sunday night. Last year, the Blackhawks won both meetings by scores of 3-2 and 4-2. The over-under was 1-0-1.

On Monday, Chicago received goals from Richard Panik along with Jan Rutta and Jonathan Toews. Panik and Rutta each had an assist as well. Anton Forsberg made 39 out of 43 saves to take the loss.

Bet on Blackhawks vs. Canadiens

Chicago will want to rebound after a tough defeat Monday, but as a team on a back-to-back it is difficult to give them the edge. Expect Price to be on his game and the Canadiens to solve the sometimes-leaky Blackhawks defense a few times to post the home victory.
