Are you looking for NHL betting value in tonight’s game between the Blackhawks and Canadiens? Then look no farther, and take the time to read our revealing preview article on this contest that includes an outstanding 41-17 (70.7%) money line betting system!

Friday Night Lights in the NHL
Two of the best teams in the NHL go at it on Friday when the Blackhawks host the Canadiens at the United Center in Chicago with a slated start of 8:35 PM ET. According to the NHL odds at Pinnacle, the Blackhawks are a -170 money line favorite, and the posted total is 5.0. These teams met once already this season and Chicago skated away with a dominating 5-0 win at the Bell Centre in Montreal. These clubs split their two games a season ago with each winning on home ice.

 

Probable Starting Goaltenders
Not only are these two of the best teams in the NHL squaring off tonight, but also will be a matchup of two of the premier goaltenders in the world. Carey Price is scheduled to make the start for the Canadiens, and he’s gone 14-7 on 21-starts with a stellar .929 save percentage. The Blackhawks will in all likelihood go with Cory Crawford in goal. Crawford has gone 12-6 in 18-starts, and has compiled an impressive .929 save percentage.

 

Getting Back on Track is a Top Priority
The Montreal Canadiens got off to a terrific 16-6 starts against the money line this season. Since that time, they’ve dropped 4 of their last 5 heading into tonight. Despite their recent funk, the Canadiens are currently tied with the Pittsburgh Penguins for 2nd overall in the Eastern Conference. Montreal has seen just 5 of their last 22-games go over the total.

 

Red-Hot and Rolling
After getting off to a slow start to the season, the Chicago Blackhawks have been absolutely on fire over the past few weeks. The Hawks have won the last 4, 7 of the last 8, and 9 of their previous 11-games. Chicago hasn’t seen any of their last 5-games go over the total, and has witnessed just 5 of their first 25-games this season surpassing the number.

 

Final Analysis
Chicago enters tonight with a money line record of 16-9 (.640) on the season, and Montreal is currently 17-10 (.630). As I alluded to earlier, Montreal was a 5-0 loser in the only meeting of the season between these teams. These occurrences all factor into a terrific money line betting system that I will take full advantage of when making my NHL picks today.

Any team (Montreal) in the 1st half of the season that’s playing with same season revenge stemming from a home loss by 2-goals or more, and both teams have a money line winning percentage of .600 to .700, has gone 41-17 (70.7%) against the money line since 1996.
