NHL Betting: Preview: Bruins @ Canadiens 2:05pm ET Feb 1

The Boston Bruins and the Montreal Canadiens will renew their rivalry on Sunday Afternoon prior to the Super Bowl. The afternoon game for the home team has been a tradition for many years.

I personally attended many of these games in the nineties when the Flyers were slated as the road team several years in a row, more often than not these were very competitive games

I always take a close look at the underdog when two natural rivals are set to do battle; the Bruins and the Canadiens have had such a rivalry for the past several decades.

These two teams are headed in opposite directions as of late with Montreal coming off an embarrassing 5-1 loss to the Florida Panthers the other day. They did however, manage to bounce back against a weak LA Kings team on Saturday, coming into Sunday's afternoon tilt on a one game winning streak!! Despite that win, Montreal has allowed 22 goals in their last 5 games and has lost to the likes of Florida, Tampa, and Atlanta - all non-playoff contending teams

Boston on the other hand has been much more consistent and has been rolling right along defeating the New York Rangers 1-0 on Saturday. They have not lost a regulation time game in their past 5 match ups. Boston has also owned Montreal this year, losing only one game, and that was via a shoot out. The most lopsided of which was a 6-1 shellacking on November 13th.

My play will be on the Boston Bruins to defeat the Montreal Canadiens on the Traditional Sunday afternoon matcht. All indications are that Montreal is a team in serious trouble right now and Boston is one of the best teams in the NHL this year. Need proof? Boston currently has 78 points which places them above the San Jose Sharks for most points in the National Hockey League as of Jan 31st.

This is a golden opportunity to grab the best team in the league at odds of 2.10 (+110) against a natural rival, a game they will be sure to get up for. There is no need for motivation here -the Bruins will have plenty.

The trend will continue and the Bruins will continue to dominate the Canadiens this season.
