New Jersey Devils vs. Montreal Canadiens February 2 Prediction
The New Jersey Devils have a tough road game Saturday afternoon as they face the Montreal Canadiens in the raucous Bell Centre in La Belle Province, Quebec. The Devils currently find themselves way out of the playoff picture in the Eastern Conference, so every point they can win off of an eastern rival is crucial.
The Devils are currently third from last in the conference, and have only won four times in their last ten games. They are also an abysmal road team, posting a 6-17-3 away from home this season. All of this may be due to the fact that they are walking wounded, with several key players on the shelf.
The Habs, meanwhile, are on an upswing, pushing themselves up to third in the conference. They have won six of their last ten games. They are actually a better road team this year than at home, but still sport a solid 14-10-2 record in Bell Centre. Montreal, in stark contrast to New Jersey, are healthy and at full strength.
The Devils won their first meeting this season, with two more games (including Saturday) on the way.
