Boston Bruins vs Montreal Canadiens NHL Picks & NHL Predictions
We have Boston Bruins vs Montreal Canadiens NHL Picks & NHL Predictions for the game played at Bell Center on Tuesday, November 5.
The match of the week in the NHL will see the Boston Bruins travel to Montreal to take on the Canadiens.
Both sides have had decent starts to the new season, but a win here would be massive as a marker for how the rest of their seasons may go.
Montreal Canadiens Form
The Montreal Canadiens currently sit fifth in the division having won seven of their 15 games this season. They have, however, lost on five occasions which would be a disappointment to the coach.
They have scored the second-highest amount of goals this season, as they have scored 51. Meanwhile, their defensive record is also pretty solid, as they have scored the third highest.
This will be an almighty challenge, though, as the side that has better records then them on both of those aspects is their opponents.
The Canadiens have won three of their last five, and two of their last three. Their last fixture came against the Dallas Stars, and it was an underwhelming performance on that occasion.
They lost 4-1 away from home, and that was certainly not a good account of themselves. They are a much better side than that fixture, and if they played like that against the Bruins, they would get dismantled.
The Montreal goal in that game was scored by Atturi Lehkonen, while Carey Price made 39 saves.
Boston Bruins Form
The Boston Bruins have been remarkable in the early stages of this season as they have only been beaten on one occasion in regulation time.
They have won ten of their fixtures this season, and there is a feeling that the Bruins could achieve something pretty special this season.
Boston have won their last five in the NHL, and that has seen a little gap open up between themselves and the rest of the division. Their last win came in their previous game as they beat the Ottawa Senators 5-2.
The Bruins scored at least once in every period and finished their opponents off with a flurry of three goals in the final period.
There were goals in the game for David Pastrnak, Patrice Bergeron, Danton Heinen, Brad Marchand and Jake DeBrusk. Meanwhile, Tuukka Rask made 31 saves.
