Devils vs. Canadiens: Betting Odds, How to Watch, Projected Lines, & More

New Jersey Devils

The New Jersey Devils host the Montreal Canadiens tonight at the Prudential Center. The Devils are coming off a pretty uninspired loss despite their plethora of key injuries.

In the month of January, the Devils have lacked consistency in alternating wins and losses, winning consecutive games just once in the first two games of this month.

The Habs are in a similar boat, however, have pulled off some impressive wins against superior opponents this month such as the Dallas Stars, New York Rangers, and Colorado Avalanche. Nico Hischier and co. will need to avoid the trap game and get back in the win column against an inferior Canadiens squad.

Let’s dive into this afternoon’s Devils’ tilt with the Canadiens.

Last Game

The Devils spoiled a high-quality start by Nico Daws against the Boston Bruins.

– The Devils skated in their fourth matinee contest for the 2023-24 campaign and fell to 1-3-0 when playing in a day game.

– The Devils were outshot, 36-31. The team is now 6-10-0 when outshot in a game this season.

– New Jersey suffered its second shutout for the 2023-24 campaign, while Nov. 22, 2023, at Detroit (4-0, L) marked the team’s first game shutout this season.

– The Devils were 30/58 (52%) on face-offs in the contest.

Player to Watch

Tyler Toffoli has played in 171 consecutive games, which ranks 19th for all active skaters in the NHL. The former Canadiens forward enjoys facing off against the club he used to suit up for. In 18 career games against the Canadiens, Toffoli’s registered seven goals and 16 points. The veteran forward has gone cold, missing from the goal column in the last five games. Look for Toffoli to try and get back on the board tonight.

Devils vs. Canadiens

According to the Devils’ PR, “The Devils and Montreal meet for the second time this season. The two foes’ regular-season series concludes on Feb. 24, at the Rock.

Last meeting: The Devils visited Montreal on Oct. 24, 2023, and collected a 5-2 win. The victory witnessed forward Tyler Toffoli earn a hat-trick (3g-0a), while Nico Hischier and Alexander Holtz also found the back of the net in the winning effort.
