The Canucks are 5-0 in their last 5 Tuesday games and 1-5 in their last 6 games playing on 0 days rest. The Canadiens are 1-4 in their last 5 Tuesday games and 5-2 in their last 7 overall. The over is 4-1 in Canucks last 5 Tuesday games. The over is 3-1-1 in Canadiens last 5 overall. The Canucks are 1-6 in the last 7 meetings in Montreal and 5-17 in the last 22 meetings.

You can once again make a case for the Canucks and the plus money, but the history here heavily leans in the favor of the Canadiens. After a 6-2 win last night, the Habs have now won 18 of the last 22 meetings against the Canucks. In fact, the Canadiens have beaten the Canucks three straight times in the last two weeks, outscoring them 18-7 during that span. I'm not sure what else to break down here. Give me the Canadiens for yet another win over Vancouver.
