The Canadiens have been struggling to score recently scoring just 1 goal or less in 5 of their last 7 games. Yes, they scored 4 goals in there last game but that was against a struggling Predators team. Tonight the Habs face a Lightning team with a red hot Ben Bishop in goal who is 6-1-1 with a 1.58 GAA and .944 SV% in December.
The Predators are just about an automatic bet against these days as the goaltending situation is out of control as they await the return of Rinne. Meanwhile the Kings are solid on both ends of the puck and catch the Preds coming off a 4-1 road loss in Dallas last night.
