The under is 7-2-1 in Canadiens last 10 overall. The over is 5-0 in Canucks last 5 Wednesday games. The Canadiens are 4-0 in the last 4 meetings in Vancouver and 16-5 in the last 21 meetings. The road team is 5-2 in the last 7 meetings.
The Montreal Canadiens are off to a strong start, mainly on the offensive end, and they should like this hot start to continue given their one-sided success against the Canucks over the years. Speaking of the Vancouver Canucks, they can't get out of their own way right now and both of their goalies are on the struggle bus. The Montreal Canadiens and the cheap price right here is one of the better bets on Wednesday's NHL card.
