    • The juice on this game is something I usually avoid, and it's probably a better bet to consider the puck line if you're into those kind of things. The Montreal Canadiens have little success playing on the end of back to backs, and they've been even worse on the road all season. Meanwhile, the Boston Bruins are one of the hotter teams in the league recently and will continue to be in games as long as their defense holds up. I'll take the Bruins, but the spread to give the wager actual value.

    • The Bruin offense should have a field day with him and the Habs just wont have enough offense to keep this one close as they have averaged just 2.17 gpg on the road and Tuukka Rask has a 2.07 GAA here at home. The final edge is that the Bruins are on rest, while the Habs will be playing with no rest. Even though Montreal has won six of their last eight here at the Garden, this sets up as a nice rout for the Bruins.

      Pick: Boston -1.5
