NHL Odds: All Canadian Matchup in Montreal

by: Staff Writer - posted on: 06-Feb-2019

The high-flying Winnipeg Jets will be paying a visit to the Bell Centre on Thursday to take on the Montreal Canadiens. Both teams have been hot of late, with each winning three of their last four games. The Habs are coming off of a decisive 4-1 victory over the struggling Anaheim Ducks, while Winnipeg dropped a heartbreaker in overtime to the San Jose Sharks on Tuesday. This will be a true test for the Canadiens, who have struggled against bigger teams so far this season.

After making it all the way to the Western Conference Finals last year, big things have been expected of the Winnipeg Jets this season. Now with just 29 games left, the Jets have not disappointed. They currently sit in first place in the Central Division, with a three-point cushion over the Nashville Predators.

Montreal, on the other hand, was expected to go through a season of rebuilding. Instead, they've surprised everyone and sit just one point behind the heavily-favoured Toronto Maple Leafs for third in the Atlantic Division. While this season has already been a success for Montreal, they'll want to keep up the intensity and secure a playoff spot. Tune in for the 7:30 PM ET puck drop.
