  • Canadiens at Canucks: Projected starting goalies

    Carey Price (7-4-3, 2.83 GAA, .898 SV%) vs. Thatcher Demko (7-9-1, 2.87 GAA, .913 SV%, 1 SO).

    Price has won each of his two starts in the month of March as the coaching regime change to Dominique Ducharme appears to have lit a fire under them. Price had won just two of seven February starts, but he has already equaled that number this month. He heads into this one 2-0-1 with a 2.92 GAA and .890 SV% in three starts against the Canucks this season.

    Demko won three of six January starts but just one of eight February outings. He is a perfect 3-0-0 with a 1.01 GAA and .969 SV% across three outings in March. Demko has had issues against the Habs so far this season, coughing up 11 total goals in two starts, both losses. In his only appearance against the Canadiens at home, he allowed seven goals on 42 shots Jan. 21.

    Canadiens at Canucks: Odds, lines, predictions and picks


    Canucks 3, Canadiens 2.

    Money line (ML)

    The CANUCKS (+135) are playing good hockey lately, including a two-game series sweep of the Maple Leafs over the weekend. They’re a great value as short ‘dogs on home ice, and the power play has really been clicking lately, too.

    Against the spread (ATS)

    The CANUCKS +1.5 (-200) have struggled against the Canadiens this season, so if you want a little insurance, it’s perfectly understandable. Vancouver has won just once, a 6-5 shootout Jan. 20, in five meetings with Montreal this season. The Canucks have won three of the past four overall, however, outscoring the opposition 13-8.

    Over/Under (O/U)

    The UNDER 6 (+100) has hit in four of the past five for the Canucks, as Demko has really buckled down lately. He looks like the guy the organization thought he could be when they let Jacob Markstrom walk during free agency this past offseason. While the Over is 4-1 in the five meetings between these sides this season, the Under is the play with Price playing well lately and Demko standing on his head lately.
