Hapless Habs try to break out of funk vs Stars

The Montreal Canadiens roll into Dallas to face the Stars tonight and the Habs are back in their funk. Montreal is 1-4 SU and 0-5 ATS in its last five games and things won’t get any easier playing the Stars, who are hungry to climb back into the playoff hunt in the stacked Western Conference. The Canadiens opened as +130 road dogs in this tilt.

SHARK BITES
  • The total has gone OVER in the Stars’ last four games.
  • The visiting team is 1-5 SU in the last six games in this matchup.
  • Montreal is 3-6 SU in its 9 games on the road.

Dallas is a team that, on paper, should be at or near the top of the West. Players like Jamie Benn and Tyler Seguin are world-class and usually finish in the top 20 in scoring. So what gives? Well, it’s in net where they’ve struggled and after acquiring Ben Bishop, the problem still exists. Bishop ranks 25th in save percentage (.903) and 19th in GAA (2.78) and the Stars allow over three goals per game this season. Luckily, none of those stats should matter tonight as they’re 7-1 SU and 6-2 ATS in their last eight games at home and are playing the hapless Habs.

What more is there to say about the Canadiens? As long as goaltender Carey Price is not in net, this team cannot be trusted to make an impact. The only saving grace for Montreal backers is the Habs are 3-0 SU vs the Stars in their last three matchups and have won three of their last four on the road.  

And finally, the total opened at 6 in this matchup, which could be the highest-scoring game of the night. The total has gone OVER in 6 of Montreal’s last seven road games and they allow over 3.5 goals per game. Dallas has also potted 11 goals in its last two home games.
