Winnipeg at Montreal
Monday 06/07 08:00 PM Eastern
2 units on Montreal -1.5 goals +175 (puckline) (risk 2 to return 5.5) RESULT: LOSS
Winnipeg is paying a heavy price for Mark Scheifele's needless hit on Jake Evans resulting in a suspension and giving extra motivation to an already hot Montreal team that went up 3-0 in the series following Sunday's 5-1 blowout. Joel Armia had two goals and an assist and Carey Price stopped 26 shots. The Canadiens have won six straight and haven't even trailed since Game 4 against Toronto in the first round. The Jets have scored only four goals in this series and they are 0-5 their past five games against an opponent that scored at least five goals its previous game, also going 5-17 their past 22 after allowing five or more goals. Winnipeg goalie Connor Hellebuyck has allowed 16 goals his last five games going back to the Edmonton series. Take the Canadiens on the puck line as a Max Play.
