Montreal is 1-5 in their last 6 games on no rest and 4-10 in their last 14 road games while the under is 5-1-1 in their last 7 games overall. Calgary is 4-10 in their last 14 games overall and 1-4 in their last 5 home games while the under is 4-0-1 in their last 5 games overall. The home team is 5-2 in the last 7 meetings between these two teams.

Well just when I back the Canadiens to keep their momentum going, they remind me that it’s been a bad idea for the last couple of months. Calgary didn’t have a morning skate and came out and put the boots to Montreal. I think that the Flames continue to show why Montreal’s overrated and get a win at home in this one.
