NHL Betting Trends

Montreal

The over is 4-0-1 in the last five Canadiens games versus the Eastern Conference. Montreal is 0-6 in the last six meetings.

Boston

The under is 4-0 in the last four Bruins games. Boston is 4-0 in its last four games versus the Atlantic Conference.

Prediction:

Boston is rounding into form and starting to get more offensive help from players outside their top line. Defense and goaltending is rarely a question mark for the Bruins when healthy. While Montreal is capable of winning as an underdog in an environment like this, I prefer the way Boston is playing right now and expect it to record another win.
