Both of these teams have been making gamblers at SBG money this season in NHL betting so this should be an excellent matchup on Tuesday night.
Canucks on Fire
The Canucks are playing as well as they have in a long, long time. They come into this game on Tuesday having won six straight games. And the Canucks have been winning pretty easily too. Four of those six wins game by two goals or more. The Canucks are starting a tough five-game road trip but Vancouver has a different mentality than last year and they could have success on this trip. Last year the Canucks got screwed over by the NHL as they had to be on the road seemingly forever with the Olympics held in Vancouver. The Canucks have already said that this five-game trip is nothing compared to what they had to go through last year when they played 14 straight games on the road. The Canucks have won their last two games on the road after going winless in their first five. Vancouver comes into Tuesday’s game confident and relaxed.
The Canucks are 5th in the league in goals scored and 6th in the league in fewest goals allowed. With those type of numbers the Canucks are going to win a lot of games.
Is Montreal for Real?
The Canadians are off to a nice start this season but is it for real? The offense is rotten as they are 25th in the league in goals per game. The defense is solid at 7th in the league but when will Carey Price fall apart? He has been good so far this season but let’s just see what happens as the year goes on. The Canadians are only a .500 team at home so they are no guarantee to win this game on Tuesday night.
The Canucks are 6-0 in NHL betting online in their last 6 overall. The Canucks are 19-7 in their last 26 vs. the Northeast. The Canucks are 11-2-1 in the last 14 meetings between the two teams.

The Over is 19-6-1 in the Canucks last 26 road games. The Under is 3-1-1 in the Canadiens last 5 home games. The Under is 8-1 in the last 9 meetings between the two teams in Montreal.
