5* NHL Iceman Game of the Week
(NHL) Montreal vs. Vancouver, 01/21/2021 9:30 PM, Score: 7 - 3
Money Line: -131.00 Montreal (Away)
Result: Win
Special teams could play a major role in this game. Montreal’s power play has been clicking on all cylinders to start the year and it has cashed in on 40 percent of its power play opportunities through three games ranking them #1.
The Canadiens have also been solid in shorthanded situations, killing off 85.7 percent of their penalties for the season. They gave up 6 goals last night and have done well after a loss.
Meanwhile, Vancouver is 0-for-15 on the power play and it ranks near the bottom of the league in both categories. Montreal will also have the advantage between the pipes with Allen in net, so we are taking the Canadiens to come out on top in this battle between Canadian hockey teams on Thursday night.
