Montreal at Tampa Bay -240 O/U 5 
Recommendation: Over

My clients and I cashed an over winner with Montreal on Tuesday night in its 4-3 win against Detroit. That's the route I will take once again tonight as the Habs travel to face the Tampa Bay Lightning. Montreal’s defense has been gutted by injuries (P.K. Subban, Jeff Petry, Tom Gilbert and Mark Barberio) leaving them paper thin and inexperienced at the back end. They also don’t have quite the same level of goaltending with Mike Condon unable to bail them out of defensive miscues in front of their own net the way Carey Price did when he was healthy. Montreal has allowed 3+ goals in six straight games which has resulted in four overs. Tampa Bay’s offense is likely to feast on this very suspect Montreal defense with the Lightning scoring 18 goals in their last four contests. Montreal should be able to chip in offensively though as Tampa Bay allowed 34 shots on goal against Toronto the other night despite a 3-0 shutout win. The got a tremendous performance in net from Ben Bishop to make that happen but it was still not a very clean game on the defensive end. The Canadiens have been carried by Max Pacioretty and Alex Galchenyuk offensively as they’ve managed to score 3+ goals in three of their last four games. The two previous regular season encounters between Montreal and Tampa Bay this season resulted in 4-3 and 4-2 final scores. Expect a similar result here.
