NHL Betting: Pittsburgh vs Montreal Live Odds, Picks & Previews

Teams: Montreal Canadiens vs Pittsburgh Penguins

Date & Time: Monday, 7pm ET

Montreal Canadiens vs Pittsburgh Penguins Live Odds and Picks @ Sportsbook.

The Montreal Canadiens forced a game 7 in their first round series against Washington by winning the game 6 of that series from the Bell Centre. That is exactly the situation the Habs will find themselves in tonight when the puck drops at 7pm ET.

The Canadiens were unable to score against the Penguins in game 5 until very late in the game and only managed one goal in the contest. They received the kind of goaltending effort that they needed in order to stand a chance against Pittsburgh and so Habs backers have to be very disappointed that they were not able to come away with a win.

Montreal at 2.56 (+156) to win straight up and you really have to like the value with those odds. Neither team has won back to back games in this series yet as it has gone back and forth throughout.

While Montreal are not a great home team they have done a fantastic job of shutting down Sidney Crosby and that is why Montreal are still in this series. Pittsburgh will need either him to steal the show offensively or Fleury to stand on his head in net in order to knock Montreal out tonight and this series looks as though it could go 7.
