Canucks vs Canadiens | OddsShark Matchup Report
The Canucks snapped a 10-game losing streak against the Winnipeg Jets with a 4-1 win on Saturday night. Brock Boeser picked up his fourth two-goal game of the season and his second in a row as the red-hot winger now has four goals and one assist in the Canucks’ last two games. Vancouver has scored 20 goals and allowed only four goals over its current four-game winning streak since allowing 4.71 goals per game over a 2-5-0 start to the season.
Thatcher Demko and Braden Holtby will both be called upon in this back-to-back series of games against Montreal. In five games away from home this season, the Canucks have a 2-3 record.
Montreal had earned a point in each of its first seven games heading into its game on Saturday night against the Calgary Flames with a 5-0-2 record and an average of 4.71 goals scored per game. But the Canadiens didn’t have an answer for Jacob Markstrom on Saturday as Markstrom turned aside all 37 of Montreal’s shots in a 2-0 Flames win. The Canadiens will try to get their offense back on track against the Canucks, who they scored 17 goals against in three January games.
Monday night’s total is set at six goals at betting sites. The OVER is 4-1 in the last five games between the Canucks and the Canadiens.
Vancouver is playing much better now than it was just over a week ago when it last saw the Canadiens. The Canucks would love to win at least one of these next two games against Montreal to keep their current momentum going heading into a difficult three-game road trip to Toronto to face the Maple Leafs scheduled to start on Thursday.
