The Flames are 0-4 in their last 4 road games and 2-7 in their last 9 overall. The Canadiens are 11-23 in their last 34 home games and 5-1 in their last 6 overall. The over is 12-3-3 in Flames last 18 road games. The over is 3-0-1 in Canadiens last 4 overall. The Flames are 1-4 in the last 5 meetings in Montreal and 0-6 in the last 6 meetings.

The season is still young, but this feels like two teams heading in different directions and the Canadiens have looked sharper at both ends of the ice. It also doesn't hurt that the Canadiens have won each of the last six meetings against the Flames, which includes a 4-2 win on Thursday. The Habs have scored no less than four goals in each of their last four games. With the cheap price, this feels almost a little too easy. Give me the Montreal Canadiens for a fourth straight victory.
