Montreal Canadiens Fantasy Spin

Carey Price is expected to start on Friday. Price stopped 34 of 37 shots in a 4-1 loss to Boston on Wednesday. He has a 24-20-4 record, 2.71 GAA, and .913 save percentage in 48 contests this season.

Pittsburgh Penguins Fantasy Spin

Matt Murray allowed two goals on 38 shots in Tuesday's 2-1 home loss in overtime against the Tampa Bay Lightning. Murray slips to 16-7-5 with a 2.82 goals-against average and .902 save percentage across his 30 appearances. It wasn't a bad showing against a high-octane offense. He needs all the good performances he can get if he wants to eat into All-Star Tristan Jarry's role and wrestle a majority of the starts back.

Betting Trends


The Canadiens are 4-1 in their last five road games but have dropped four out of five when they’re listed as a road underdog.


The Penguins are 20-8 in their last 28 games overall and are 140-65 in their last 205 home games.

Our Prediction

The over is 7-1-3 in the last 11 meetings between these two teams in Pittsburgh but I’m going to buck that trend tonight. That’s because the under is 4-1 in the Canadiens’ last five road games, is 15-5-1 in their last 21 games overall and is 11-4 in their last 15 games when they’re coming off a loss of three or more goals. The under is also 5-1 in the Penguins’ last six games versus a team with a losing record, is 7-3-1 in their last 11 games versus Eastern Conference teams and is 5-2 in their last seven games coming off two days of rest.

Friday NHL Prediction: Candiens/Penguins UNDER 6
