Montreal Canadiens vs Vancouver Canucks Game Preview 12/5/2022

We have a contest between two teams from Canada tonight as the Montreal Canadiens and Vancouver Canucks are ready to battle it out. Puck-drop is scheduled to take place at 10:30pm EST from Rogers Arena in Vancouver.

Montreal enters this game with a record of 12-11-1 while Vancouver has a record of 10-12-3. The two teams have been pretty similar thus far throughout the year and both have some ground to make up in their respective divisons.

Montreal has had a poor offensive start to the season, averaging just 2.79 goals a game. They also rank 26th in shots and are 30th on the power play. Offense will need to be a main focus fromt his team tonight if they want to come away with the victory. If they can generate scoring chances for themselves then it could prove successful.

Vancouver has one of the better defenses around the NHL so it will be an uphill challenge for the Canadiens tonight. The Canucks are allowing just 3.36 goals per game and have really started to set a tone on that side of the ice.

Prediction: Vancouver Canucks 3, Montreal Canadiens 1

I like the Canucks to come away with the win tonight. I think the Canadiens will have a tough time scoring and Vancouver can take advantage here.
