The home team Carolina has been waiting for the match since 19.12.. Visiting Montreal has only played one game since 17.12. against Tampa Bay (29.12.). Carolina will go into the game with a 21-7-1 score (9-3-0 at home), while Montreal is 7-21-4 (2-11-3 away).

For the home team, the line-up is clearly playing. Martin Necas is a question mark, while five other players are out indefinitely - Andersen, Chatfield, Fast, Martinook and Smith. The visiting Canadiens are considerably worse off. It's literally a list of players who are out mainly due to Covid - Allen, Anderson, Armia, Byron, Chiarot, Dauphin, Dvorak, Edmundson, Hoffman, Lehkonen, Perreault, Petry, Price, Primeau, Toffoli, Wideman. It's scary to see such an extensive list.

* Hurricanes are 8-2 in their last 10 games as a favorite.

* power play usage: 22.47% (10th) vs 11.96% (32nd)
* power plays defended: 88.68% (2nd) vs 72.73% (29th)

I can feel the Hurricanes' hunger for hockey, plus they're playing at home against a team that isn't one of the best. They don't score a lot of goals, but they're good enough for eighth in the NHL right now. They are the best in goals conceded. Still, I think they'll score at least four goals in this game. The odds aren't great, but given the rosters, I would expect that.

My bet:
Carolina Hurricanes to win and Over 3.5 Goals @ 1.50
