The Vegas Golden Knights will host the Montreal Canadiens for game 1 of their series in the NHL Playoff Semifinals on Monday night. The two team did not meet during the regular season.

Montreal comes into this game on a 7-game winning streak. They are fresh off a sweep of Winnipeg, a series in which they never trailed on the scoreboard. Tyler Toffoli was their leading scorer during the regular season and has led the offense with 4 goals and 6 assists in the playoffs. It has been a combined effort overall, as 12 Canadiens have scored in the postseason. Carey Price has started all 11 playoff games for Montreal, he has allowed 1.97 goals per game with a .935 save percentage. Montreal has played great defense during their recent run. Overall, they have allowed just 2.17 goals per game on the road, while stopping 88.9% of their oppositions power play chances.

After losing the first two games, Vegas won 4 straight to close out their series against Colorado in the previous round. They outscored the Avalanche 17-8 in those last 4 games. Jonathan Marchessault led the team with 5 goals in the series; he now leads the team with 6 postseason goals. William Karlsson leads the team with 7 assists and 11 points.

Montreal is 16-11-7 on the road this season, 32-35 ATS, and the under is 36-28.

Vegas is 26-6-3 at home this season, 34-35 ATS, and the over is 34-33.

Vegas has been nearly unbeatable at home, winning their last 4 while outscoring their opponents by 12. Montreal on the other hand has been on a tear, making quick work of Winnipeg after storming back in their round one series. Both teams have been playing great defense, with Vegas allowing 2.38 goals per game and the Canadiens 2.18 throughout the playoffs. We should expect a physical game to start the series, with both teams trying to set the tone in game one. Back the under in what should be a low-scoring affair.
