It was as if the Canadiens took a magic pill, then all of a sudden, the team was back to its usual lethal form. Nobody saw it coming. In a snap of a finger, Montreal has turned up to its elite level. Although they still have the worst record in the league, the Canadiens are counting on the intangibles rather than the quantifiable record. For them, it’s all about confidence. “We’re confident in our ability. We know what type of team we are and what type of team we have to be,” Bo Horvat said. Interim coach Martin St. Louis has obviously made his impact on the team, leading them to a 7-4 card since taking over the helm.
Players to watch: J.T. Miller C (G 22, A 41, PTS 63), Quinn Hughes D (G 4, A 40, PTS 44), Elias Pettersson C (G 17, A 22, PTS 39).
The Canucks have won seven of their last nine games. The surge could not come at a better time as it pulled Vancouver closer to a wild-card playoff spot in the Western Conference. The Canucks, who sit at the sixth spot, trails the fifth-placed Anaheim Ducks by a single point, 63-62, in the Pacific Division race. What better challenge to have than to face a fellow streaking squad in their push to make the postseason. Against the Canadiens, the Canucks are aware that they will be playing against a team that is currently beaming with confidence. But they are also aware of their home-ice advantage. It’s all about playing the cards right for Vancouver. After all, the odds are not against them for this game.
Players to watch: Nick Suzuki C (G 13, A 27, PTS 40), Tyler Toffoli RW * (G 9, A 17, PTS 26), Artturi Lehkonen LW (G 11, A 14, PTS 25).
