Bet here and win
In 59 games of the regular season, the Canadian club from the Quebec province got 61 points. This brings the team to fifth place in the Atlantic Division standings.
February’s games Montreal started strongly. In their arena, the “tricolor” defeated Florida Panthers (4:0). But the next day the Habs lost to Columbus Blue Jackets (3-4).
A little later, Montreal beat Anaheim Ducks (3:2) and Toronto Maple Leafs (2:1) in extra time. On February 13, Habs embarrassed against Boston Bruins (1:4).
Canadiens game without points performed by Ilya Kovalchuk is already perceived as something strange and unusual. There have been two such matches in a row, and, symbolically, Montreal lost both. The gap from the playoff zone is growing, and the fact that the Canadian club has played more games than all the nearest competitors does not benefit either. Claude Julien’s wards also know how to cling to guest points, they won exactly 14 out of 27 games.
In this regular season, the team from Pennsylvania is in second position in the Metropolitan Division table, three points behind the leader.
On February 9, the Penguins were stronger than Florida Panthers (3-2), but in their last game Pittsburgh Penguins lost again to Tampa Bay Lightning in overtime (1-2).
Evgeni Malkin, Sidney Crosby and other Penguins hockey players continue their rapid pursuit of the top spot in the Metropolitan Division, which is occupied by Washington Capitals. Consequently, their motivation is overwhelming and they have no intention of losing to Canadians in the home arena.

Canadiens vs Penguins Prediction
Pittsburgh has everything they need to deal with Montreal in their upcoming match. The Penguins are good on their court this season and very rarely lose out in regular time. The Canadians have lost two games in a row, so they are not in the best psychological condition.
But don’t underestimate Montreal, which beat the Penguins 4-1 in December 2019 and 5-1 the year before, both times in Pittsburgh.
Our prediction: Pittsburgh Penguins will win.
