Colorado Avalanche vs Montreal Canadiens prediction

The Montreal Canadiens have been in a lot of close games lately, but they just can't finish, and it makes it hard to back them with confidence against good teams. The Habs have also had issues at home, where they're just 8-11-3 on the season. The Colorado Avalanche have right the ship these last couple of weeks, and they've won five straight and 8 of the last 10 meetings against the Habs. Give me the Avs and the PL for max betting value.
