Montreal Canadiens Stats & Form
The Montreal Canadiens are having a terrible season so far which can prove to be the worst in their franchise history if they do not turn things around very quickly. They are currently 7th in the Atlantic Division and 14th in the Eastern Conference with a 4-13-2 record.
They started the 2021-22 campaign with five consecutive losses and currently they are on a four-game losing streak.
The last time the Canadiens won was on November 12 when they surprised the Calgary Flames winning 4-2. Since then, they lost to the Detroit Red Wings, Boston Bruins and New York Rangers on the road and against the Pittsburgh Penguins at Bells Center.
The last match was very disappointing as they fail 6-0 to the Penguins. The Canadiens were 3-0 down after the first period and there were no chances for a return. Cayden Primeau allowed five goals on 31 shots in two periods for the Canadiens. Samuel Montembeault replaced Primeau at the start of the third, allowed one goal and made 11 saves.
Montreal Canadiens News
The Canadiens are playing awful lately and they will have a tough time avoiding another loss as Paul Byron, Joel Edmundson, Mike Hoffman, Cedric Paquette and Carey Price will all be out because of injuries while Jake Allen is questionable for tonight’s game.
Nashville Predators Stats & Form
The Nashville Predators are sitting in 4th place in the Central Division and 8th in the Western Conference with a 9-6-1 record.
After a rough start of the season losing 4 out of the first 5 games, the Predators have picked up their form to get in the playoff picture. They won three consecutive games before losing to the Toronto Maple Leafs 3-0 on the road.
Juuse Saros stopped 31 shots as Nashville lost in regulation for just the second time in its last 11 contests.
Nashville visited Scotiabank Arena for the first time since March 12, 2020, when they were supposed to play the Leafs before the NHL suspended its schedule because of the pandemic.
Nashville Predators News
The Predators were supposed to play Thursday in Ottawa, but that game was among the three postponed this week because of the Senators’ COVID-19 outbreak. Now they are heading to Montreal after 4 days of rest which certainly gives them an advantage in the game. Nick Cousins and Filip Forsberg will be out against the Canadiens while Alexandre Carrier is questionable.
