Montreal vs Detroit: prediction for the NHL fixture
The Montreal Canadiens continue to show disastrous results in the new season. The team has already played five matches and has not been able to earn a single point. The Canadiens suffered devastating defeats against San Jose (0:5) and Buffalo (1:5), where both goalies Allen and Montembeault demonstrated subpar performance
The Canadiens had a chance only against Toronto. They opened the scoring, but failed to keep the advantage (1:2). Montreal's losing streak has reached seven games, including the preseason matches.
Detroit Red Wings
The Detroit Red Wings welcomed Tampa to their court at the start of the regular season. Detroit showed good attacking play, but the defensive line wasn't always reliable, and goaltender Nedeljkovic saved only 85% of the shots.
After the defeat in the season opener, the Red Wings won against Vancouver (3:1) and Columbus (4:1). In those two games, Griess was tending the goal, and he proved to be more reliable than his teammate. In the last round, Detroit lost to Calgary (0:3).
In 3 head-to-head matches out of 4, the teams scored in each period.
Montreal scored first in 2 head-to-head games in a row.
Montreal are in terrible shape and they keep losing points in every match. They can't put up a fight even at their home court. We predict that in the upcoming game Detroit will not lose in regulation.
Our prediction - Detroit will not lose
Prediction: Detroit to not lose
