Montreal had a disgusting regular season that should have been forgotten a long time ago. After the appointment of a new manager, the Canadiens started to pick up points, but the momentum gradually faded. The Red and Blue have failed to score a single point in their last three games, losing to Toronto, Winnipeg and Columbus by a combined score of 5:10. Montreal remains in last place in the Eastern Conference standings.
New York Islanders
The Islanders have progressed steadily over the last few years and were now ready to make a serious run for the Stanley Cup, but in reality nothing of the sort has happened. The team has long since lost any realistic chance of making the playoffs, so the rest of the regular season is becoming a mere formality for them, although they continue to cling to points. In the last nine meetings, the New York club has six wins and three losses, but that's only good enough for a ninth place in the Eastern Conference standings.
Expert Betting Tips
After a weak first half of the season, the Canadiens have still not made much progress, but the Islanders have been able to improve, so they are fifth in the East at the last 30 games. Of course, they are the favorites for the upcoming game, since they are in good shape now. As a result, we suggest betting on the Islanders' victory for 2.22.
In their previous four head-to-head encounters, the opponents have combined to score 27 goals (6.75 average per game). And now we can expect a goal-rich encounter. With this in mind, we suggest betting on a total over 5.5 for 1.868.
Mathew Barzal is the one of the leader of the Islanders, who is having a very good regular season despite the team's slump. He has 50 points (14 goals + 36 assists) in 64 games, which is good enough to fall short of his career-high. The 24-year-old Canadian has posted consecutive goals in the last two games, so it's worth taking a closer look at Mathew Barzal Total Over 0.5 for 1.66.
