Pittsburgh Penguins vs Montreal Canadiens Prediction NHL: (North America 14.02/ Europe 15.02)
Pittsburgh will try to avoid a second defeat in a row and will fight Montreal in the match of the NHL regular season, and our website will try to give an accurate prediction for this event. Let’s evaluate the teams first.
The Penguins occupy the fourth line, but clearly want to break into the top three. In the last two matches of the three, Pittsburgh lost only to Tampa. In the first case, the team lost to Lightning with a score of 1: 3, and in the second match managed to score first but did not hold an advantage and lost in overtime – 1: 2. Next, the wards of Mike Sullivan defeated Florida – 3: 2. But on their ice this season, the team feels as comfortable as possible and suffered only five defeats in regular time.
Montreal won three games in a row but then lost in two games in a row. First, the Canadiens lost to Arizona (2: 3) and then lost to Boston away with a score of 1: 4. Canadiens, aren’t too close to the playoffs zone – they are behind the eighth position by seven points and occupy the 11th line of the East. Despite this, Claude Julien’s team also know how to cling to points on the road and won 14 of the 27 matches.
Pittsburgh Penguins vs Montreal Canadiens prediction
In our opinion, Pittsburgh has everything in order to deal with Montreal in the upcoming match. The Penguins look good on their ice this season and rarely lose in regular time. The Canadiens, however, lost two meetings in a row, so they are not in the best psychological condition. Our prediction is the victory of Penguins in the regulation.
