NHL Betting Lines – Bruins Visit Canadiens In Original Six Encounter

Saturday night’s schedule is headlined by an Original Six affair between the Montreal Canadiens and Boston Bruins at the Bell Centre. The Canadiens downed the Bruins 4-1 when the rivals met at TD Garden last Tuesday, cashing as +150 underdogs on BODOG Sports Betting Lines in the win.

Both teams come into the game with considerable injury trouble. Mike Cammalleri and Marc-Andre Bergeron are both out of the Montreal lineup with knee injuries, while Paul Mara (shoulder) is day to day. For Boston, Zdeno Chara (lower body) is day to day, and Marc Savard (concussion) is sidelined indefinitely.

Staying in the Eastern Conference, Pittsburgh clashes with the New Jersey Devils at the Prudential Center on Friday night in the second game of a five-game road trip for the Penguins. Pittsburgh led New Jersey by five points in the Atlantic Division rolling into Wednesday night’s games, but they’ll have to keep their foot on the gas to stay in first place.

The Devils have two games in hand on the Pens, who couldn’t muster any offense in the clubs’ previous meeting in Newark. Martin Brodeur made 32 saves to earn the shutout in New Jersey’s 2-0 blanking of Pittsburgh on December 30, while Jamie Langenbrunner and Niclas Bergfors both scored for the Devils (-144).
