The Montreal Canadiens host the Winnipeg Jets tonight at the Bell Centre. Here is Mike Spector's prediction and pick for the game.

Montreal Canadiens vs Winnipeg Jets Prediction: Expect Offense Tonight in Montreal

Winnipeg is coming off a 4-3 win, in Ottawa, last night against the Senators. Nikolaj Ehlers led the way with a goal and 2 Assists and Connor Hellebuyck made 31 saves to secure the victory. Despite the win, the Jets' playoff hopes are dwindling as they remain 7 points out of the last Wild Card spot with 9 games remaining. Montreal is coming off a 3-2 loss to Toronto on Saturday night. Netminder Jake Allen went down with an injury and had to leave the game. The Habs have been an exciting team under Martin St. Louis and they will look to play spoiler tonight.

On the road, this season, where their overs are 19-17, the Jets average 2.75 goals per game, and their Power Play is 19.6%, which is 16th in the league. The Jets are allowing 3.22 goals per game on the road and their Penalty Kill is 76.7%, which is the 12th worst in the league. The Jets are on a back-to-back, overs are 7-3 in such games for them this season.

The likely goaltending matchup pits Sam Monetmbault against Eric Comrie. Montembault has a 3.61 goals against average and a .896 Save Percentage this season. He has given up 16 goals over his last 5 starts in net. Being that Winnipeg is on a back-to-back, look for Eric Comrie to get the start for the Jets. Comrie has a 2.68 goals against average and a .912 save percentage this season. Comrie has also given up 16 goals over his last 5 starts in net. This is the 2nd meeting of the season between these two teams the Jets picked up an 8-4 home win on March 1st. I expect the same kind of up and down game tonight.
