NHL Betting: Canadian Rivals Headline Saturday Night Hockey Lines

The Toronto Maple Leafs and Montreal Canadiens both appear to be heading to the playoffs. What’s more is that the bitter Canadian rivals could very well face-off in the first round and we could see a preview of what’s to come when the two sides meet on Saturday night.

The Maple Leafs have the upper hand in this series so far this season as they have taken two of three meetings from the Habs. They’ve kept the Habs in line, holding them to just six goals in the three meetings.

Toronto comes into this contest with some momentum as they are 7-1-3 in their last 11 games. They’ve been particularly hard to beat at home as they have won five of their last six at the Air Canada Centre. Their offense has been cooking with the Leafs averaging 3.4 goals per outing in their last 12. Only two teams in the East have scored more goals than them this season and the Habs will have to slow that offense down if they are to earn the road win.

NHL Betting: Canadiens Futures Odds Improve As They Host Rangers

NHL Betting: Canadiens Futures Odds Improve As They Host Rangers

The Montreal Canadiens finished dead last in the Eastern Conference last season but have morphed into a completely different team this year. They are now one of the best in the East and have even spent time atop the conference standings this week.

On Saturday, they’ll host the team that was posted as the Stanley Cup favorite on the NHL odds at the beginning of the season: the New York Rangers. However, the Rangers haven’t been consistent and have steadily declined. They are now at 14/1 to win the Cup while the Canadiens have climbed to 20/1.

Montreal already defeated New York once this week with a 3-1 result at Madison Square Garden on Tuesday. The Rangers will try to get some revenge on Saturday night when they visit Montreal but they’ll need to generate more offense. While goaltender Henrik Lundqvist has done his part, allowing just 22 goals in his last 11 starts, the offense has once again let the team down. The Rangers scoring units will have to get going as they have netted the fourth-fewest goals in the East.

John Ryan – The Way to Shut Down Ovechkin

04/14/2011

Just last year the eight seed Montreal Canadiens held Alexander Ovechkin to just one assist over the final two games of the series. It is reasonable to say that Montreal provided a blue print to the rest of league as Ovechkin has produced career lows in goals and scoring this season. During one stretch he had just two goals in 19 games played.

The 6-foot-2, 235 pound Ovechkin has tremendous speed, strength, and arguably the best offensive skills the game has ever seen. However, there are some solid defensive techniques that have prevented Ovechkin from using is complete scoring arsenal.

Teams are ‘Gapping Up’ on him and this means that instead of defending puck carriers at the blue line they are instead defending the red line. This technique in combination with solid back checking as he comes out of the Capitals zone prevents him from gathering top speed and gaining the middle of the ice where his athleticism overwhelms any defenseman in the league. If you are looking to make a few NHL picks The Rangers have the personnel and depth to make this happen in this series.
