Canadiens Open Post-Olympic Schedule Against Red Wings

Montreal working to extend win streak

The Canadiens entered the Winter Olympic break with a three-game winning streak after handing the Hurricanes a 4-1 loss in their final game prior to the break. Montreal is just eight points behind the Atlantic Division leaders, the Boston Bruins, so they have a division title on their minds. Goalie Carey Price, fresh off a gold medal with Team Canada, will not be in net tonight for the Canadiens as they open their schedule against Detroit.

Detroit’s first season in the East a difficult one

When each season begins in Detroit, the fans expect nothing less than a lengthy trip to the playoffs. Detroit has not been as strong these past couple of seasons, and this one is no different. The Red Wings are playing their first season in the Eastern Conference and are in the Atlantic Division. With 64 points, they find themselves in fifth place, six points behind the Canadiens in the standings. They will need to start their playoff push tonight with a win.

As the NHL ramps its schedule back up to full-scale this week, the Canadiens host the Red Wings at the Bell Centre in Montreal. We visit the online sportsbook found at TopBet on Wednesday night to find the betting odds. Even without Carey Price in net, we still like the Canadiens to grab a win in tonight’s contest, which is why we will lay the line of -1.5 (+220) in favor of Montreal by betting 15 percent of our bankroll.
