NHL GAME OF THE WEEK ~ OFF PERFECT 5-0 SWEEP!
NY Islanders vs. Montreal,
12/03/2019 19:00 EDT,
Score: 2 - 4
Money Line: -120 Montreal
I'm playing on MONTREAL. While the Isles certainly come in as the hotter team, the Habs have both the venue and the schedule working for them. They're rested while the Isles are off a win against the Wings yesterday. The Isles may have an impressive record but this is a team that Canadiens know that they can beat. They're 4-1 the past five meetings including a 4-0 win the last time that the teams played here. Needless to say, they're going to be extremely motivated to snap their losing streak. The Canadiens have been here before, Price remembering a seven game winless skid in 2017: "Yeah, it does bring back memories. But I think some of the guys that were in this room back then learned from that and know that nobody's going to feel sorry for us or hand us anything. So we need to go back out there and earn it." Look for them to do exactly that tonight, outworking their guests en route to a badly needed victory.
