Montreal Canadiens vs. Ottawa Senators Prediction: Red Hot Habs Look For Another Road Win

Montreal Canadiens vs. Ottawa Senators Prediction

Neither of these teams will be making the playoffs this season as the Senators are 6th in the Atlantic with a record of 19-26-5 for 43 points and the Habs are last in the division with a record of 12-33-7 for 31 points. The rest of the season, for both teams, is to find out what each team has in their young players. Ottawa in 5-4-1 over their last ten games, they are coming off a 4-3 home win against a good Minnesota team on Tuesday night. Ottawa has dealt with injuries all season long as they are still missing 2 offensive pieces on Josh Norris and Drake Batherson. The Senators are still a pesky team and play a tough game every night. The Canadiens are an absolute wagon right now. This team has found new life under new coach Martin St. Louis and their youngsters, especially stud winger Cole Caufield are thriving right now. Montreal is 4-3 under St. Louis but they have won each of their last 4 games, I'll focus on the numbers during their current winning streak below.

I mentioned Caufield above, in the 7 games under St. Louis he has scored goals in 5 of them, totaling 6. He had 1 goal in the 30 games previously so the coaching change has definitely benefited the young star the most. During their 4 game win streak the Canadiens are outscoring teams by a 15-6 margin. They have beat good teams during the streak as well with wins coming against Toronto, St Louis and the Islanders. Montreal has gotten superb goaltending during this winning streak with Sam Montembault picking up 3 wins, including a shutout, and Andrew Hammond picking up the other win in what was his first NHL game since 2017. Hammond makes his return to Ottawa, where he gained the nickname "The Hamburglar" during his insane run in the 2014-15 season. Hammond went 20-1-2 during a 23 game stretch with the Sens posting a 1.79 GAA and .941 save percentage. In his start against the Islanders on Sunday, Hammond made 30 saves in a 3-2 shootout win.

Bet $1 on Canadiens vs. Senators, Get $150 if your team wins The Senators are a -170 favorite in this game, which they have no business being. The Habs are on fire right now and books have not picked up on their recent run. If you follow my plays you know I am not afraid of going with dogs and I think this one holds a ton of value given recent trends. In the NHL you have to look at spots, where you can find an edge and I love this one tonight for the Habs. Adding the Hamburglar making his return to Ottawa, I expect Montreal to continue their hot streak and pick up the road win tonight in Ottawa as this line is way too inflated.
