Both teams are in back-to-back situations according to the hockey betting schedule. Carolina played last night in Boston while Montreal was home against Buffalo according to the bet on hockey schedule.
Bet on hockey history shows that Carolina has actually had some success against Montreal. The Hurricanes have won 6 of the last 10 against the Canadiens according to hockey betting statistics. Carolina has really done well in Montreal, winning four of the last five games according to bet on hockey results. They did lose though earlier this season in Montreal by a score of 3-2 according to bet on hockey results. They bounced back at home to defeat the Canadiens 2-1 in November according to bet on hockey information.
Gamblers that bet on hockey totals will notice that the under is 6-3-1 in the last 10 meetings between the two teams. At Montreal, the three of the last five games have gone under the bet on hockey total. The under makes some sense here considering the Canadiens have Carey Price in goal while the Hurricanes have Cam Ward. Montreal ranks in the Top 10 in defense according to hockey betting stats while Carolina is in the middle of the pack. Both goalies are considered among the best in the NHL and have played well this season.
Montreal has been led in scoring this season by Saku Koivu according to bet on hockey numbers while Carolina is led by Ray Whitney. Neither team is explosive offensively but each gets timely goals. In the earlier meeting between the teams in November the Hurricanes peppered Price with 48 shots but scored just twice according to bet on hockey stats. It was enough though as Montreal could only score once against Ward. Ray Whitney had the game winning goal in the third period for Carolina according to bet on hockey statistics.
