Canadiens vs. Hurricanes Prediction

I’m on Montreal +1.5 here. The Canadiens continue to fight hard on the road despite being well out of the playoff race and Carolina, despite winning a lot of games as of late, are winning with defense and aren’t necessarily blowing teams away offensively. All in all, I think Montreal is competitive once again and I think they keep this one close. Give me Montreal +1.5.

Chris’s Pick Montreal +1.5
