Carolina Hurricanes vs Montreal Canadiens Predictions 4/1/2023


With only 2.82 goals scored per game, the Canadiens‘ attack failed to live up to expectations this season.


The top two lines, led by Nick Suzuki, Kirby Dach, and Mike Hoffman, combined for 51 goals and 82 assists, while the rest of the offense underperformed.


Opposing defenses can shut down the helpless attack since just seven skaters scored 10 goals or more.


Although the Canadiens’ offense struggled, their defense failed them this season, surrendering 3.67 goals per game, including eight in their previous two games.


While Mike Matheson and Jonathan Kovacevic combined for 5.0 defensive point shares, the rest of the team failed, allowing opponents to consistently find open chances on goal.


Goalie Sam Montembeault also had trouble, with a 3.30 goals-against average on 1167 shots and a.904 save percentage with -0.3 goals saved over average.


  • The Montreal Canadiens are 4-12 SU in their last 16 matches.

  • Montreal is 2-5 SU in their last 7 contests at home against Carolina.

Carolina Hurricanes vs Montreal Canadiens. The NHL pick for this game is the Carolina Hurricanes. The Canadiens want to end their skid of defeats and secure victory on their home ice.


The Hurricanes are one of the top teams in the NHL, and they want to dominate this game from the moment the puck is dropped.


With Sebastian Aho, Martin Necas, and the rest of the forward group pushing the puck into the offensive zone and generating open shots with cross-ice passes and swift puck movement, the Hurricanes should score at will against the Canadiens defense, who allows 3.67 goals per game.


Brent Burns, Brett Pesce, and the rest of the Hurricanes’ defense should restrict the Canadiens’ offense, which scores only 2.82 goals per game on average, by forcing turnovers in the defensive zone and preventing shots on goal.


This will give goaltender Antti Raanta plenty of opportunities to make crucial saves. The Hurricanes should triumph and cover the odds in a convincing victory away from home.


The Carolina Hurricanes will win to a predicted score of 7-3.
