1.5 units on Montreal -122 (moneyline) (risk 1.5 to return 2.73) RESULT: WIN
Not that Montreal needed extra motivation in this series, but the Canadiens got it when Mark Scheifele charged into Jake Evans in Game 1, causing a concussion for Evans and a four-game suspension for Scheifele. The Canadiens defeated the Jets 1-0 on Friday when Carey Price stopped 30 shots, and Tyler Toffoli scored a short-handed goal early in the second period. Now Montreal gets to go home leading 2-0, and it has won five in a row while allowing a total of only nine goals in that span. Winnipeg has lost all its momentum after sweeping Edmonton, and the Jets have lost seven of 10 playing with one day of rest. Play the Canadiens.
