The Montreal Canadiens and Columbus Blue Jackets face off on Wednesday in an NHL showdown at Nationwide Arena. Check out our Canadiens vs Blue Jackets Prediction.

Canadiens Offense Can’t Repeat Last Game

The Canadiens haven’t found a lot of success this season, and they are coming off a loss in the last game. On Saturday the Canadiens faced off against the Los Angeles Kings, and they were defeated 4-0. Jake Allen started in goal, and he saved 26 of the shots that he faced. The Canadiens overall are averaging 2.71 goals while their defense is giving up 3.45 goals per game. The offense is ranked 27th, and they are going to need to find a way to get the offense going early.

Shane’s Free Pick

I really don’t trust either offense, and goals are going to be hard to come by in this game. The Blue Jackets are averaging 2.91 goals per game while the Canadiens are averaging 2.71 goals per game. Both offenses are going to really struggle here, and that is going to be the difference here. Especially, the Canadiens are going to struggle, and I don’t think they are going to score more than a goal here. Back the under.
