Just when it seemed as the Canadiens’ 2016-17 window has been shut, they were given a gift-wrapped Claude Julien to replace Michel Therrien and the prior Bruins bench manager has gone on to coach the Habs into some renewed confidence as well as a 7-2-0 record since taking over.
In this run, the Canadiens have made 100 straight-up bettors a profit of $466.94 and have rewarded UNDER bettors using an O/U listing of 1-7-1.
With the Flames heading to their eighth win in a row winners of their last six, Claude and the Canadiens will take. Both teams’ surges up the standings have been heavily goaltender-related but Carey Price was playing such as the one who won the 2014-15 Hart, Vezina and Ted Lindsay decorations since the coaching change and owns a .951 save percentage as well as a 1.38 goals-against average in his eight starts below Julien’s guidance.
Calgary’s series heading into this matchup makes it hard to blindly bet the Habs on the street but the Flames are giving up a slew of shots during their current homestand (32.67 per match ) and the Canadiens have outshot their opponents by an average of seven per game over the course of their past three games. Additionally, they should possess Alexander Radulov back in the fold for this one and he’ll be a sight for sore eyes because he leads the Canadiens in assists this season.
Despite what Montreal fans will let you know, their group was finding the back of the net rather frequently during Julien’s youthful tenure and they’re 10th in the league in goals per game since the transaction deadline. With Carey Price playing from his head and Montreal committing their celebrity goalie sees, I like the Habs on Thursday and I also like that the UNDER.
Possibly one of the factors in the firing of Therrien was the frustration felt toward him from the team leaders, Max Pacioretty and Carey Price. It is clear there was something to that rumor as the Habs captain has eight points in his last nine matches and we’ve already talked about that which Pricer has been doing.
Those 2 guys are definitely the strongest on the success of the team and if they’re happy and performing , so is the team.
Montreal has a six-game homestand beginning March 19 during which the team can lock up the Atlantic Division. Now is the time to do it, if you are thinking of making a futures contract about the Habs.
Here is a look with Julien in the Canadiens’ last nine matches.
