Boston Bruins Have Had no Answer For Carey Price

One of the most heated rivalries in the NHL reignites on Tuesday when the Eastern Conference-leading Montreal Canadiens host the Boston Bruins at the Bell Centre with both teams having won four of their last five games.

SHARK BITES
  • The Bruins are 2-10 in their last 12 games against the Canadiens.
  • The Canadiens are 8-0 on the moneyline and 6-2 on the puckline in their last 8 games at home.
  • Carey Price is 23-8-3 in 34 career starts against the Bruins.

After Al Montoya’s performance on Saturday, it’s very likely the Canadiens start their ringer Carey Price in net as he looks to stay undefeated for the season and for his 10th straight regular season win against the Boston Bruins.

With Price in net, the Canadiens have looked like Stanley Cup contenders. They’ve allowed just 1.57 goals per game and scored 3.57 in games started by No. 31. His likely counterpart tonight, Tuukka Rask, has been equally as important for his team as he owns a 7-1-0 record so far this season with a save percentage of .941 and even posted a shutout against the Sabres last night.

The Bruins are just 3-7 in their last 10 games on the second half of a back-to-back and the OVER/UNDER is 3-6-1 in those games. I’m expecting Price and the Canadiens to come away with another win against the Bruins tonight in a low-scoring affair.
