The NHL is back in action today as the Montreal Canadiens will clash with the New York Rangers at Madison Square Garden. The Canadiens are coming off a 3-2 home loss to the Avalanche. And on the other side, the Rangers scored a 3-2 road win over the Blue Jackets on Thursday night.
Montreal Canadiens Form
The Canadiens are heading into this game after an unlucky defeat against the Avalanche. However, their recent record is not good enough as they have lost 9 of their last 10 games in the NHL. Therefore, it is safe to say that the Canadiens are not having a good season so far. However, this team has quality players such as Tomas Tatar, Max Domi and they will try to turn the tide in this game.
On the offensive side of the game, the Canadiens scored an average of 3.3 goals, good for eighth in the NHL.
And of the defensive side of the game, their average stands at 3.5 goals, positioning them 28th overall.
New York Rangers Form
The Rangers managed to pull a surprise as they beat the Blue Jackets away.
Moreover, New York is playing well, as they have 5-1-1 record in their last seven games. Additionally, they have Artemi Panarin as he scored his 13th goal of the season in Thursday’s victory. The 28-year old left-winger continues to excel, collecting nine points in his last seven games. Furthermore, they have Mika Zibanejad is coming back and that is a big advantage in this game.
On the offensive side of the game, the Rangers score an average of 3.2 goals per game. And this is enough for the 10th spot in the league in scoring.
On the defensive side of the game, they are allowing an average of 3.3 goals which is enough for the 25th defensive record overall.
The Canadiens have some talented players. However, they are not playing well at the moment. Also, they are facing the in-form Rangers in this game. Therefore, it will be hard for them in this game.
On the other side, the Rangers are playing well and are on a good run. Therefore, I expect another win for New York.
