Philadelphia vs Montreal: what to expect from the Canadians next?
13/08/2020, 00:00 GTM
Montreal Canadiens have not lost in regular time in their last 5 head-to-head matches. This shows that Philadelphia is a convenient opponent for them.
The extreme confrontation took place on January 17, 2020 and ended in favor of Claude Julien's charges with a devastating score (4-1) on the road.
Philadelphia really had a great qualifying round and won all three matches. The “pilots” were able to deal with “Boston” (4: 1), “Washington” (3: 1) and even “Tampa” (4: 1). In total, over three meetings, the team conceded only three goals and showed themselves disciplined both in defense and in attack.
Alain Vigno's squad began to rise in the second half of the season, when they beat all leaders. As you can see, the break did not affect the team's performance in any way and it continues to win and do it beautifully. It is likely that the management and players have now plans to make it to the Cup final and Philadelphia can greatly delight their fans this year.

Montreal were an outsider in a pairing with Pittsburgh, but, despite this, they managed to beat their rival with a score of 3:1 in the series. Of course, all the matches took place between teams in an equal fight and with a close score on the scoreboard, but the Canadians still managed to achieve their goal, despite all problems that followed them during the regular season.
After an incredible comeback in the third match, the Tricolors prevailed in the fourth meeting literally at the very end and Artturi Lehkonen scored the winning puck. However, it is currently unclear if the Canadians have enough fuse to keep playing at the same pace and to maintain concentration throughout the entire series with Philadelphia, as the opponent is in better shape than Pittsburgh.
"Philadelphia" showed itself from the best side in the matches with powerful opponents, so it will fit in the best form against the series with "Montreal". The Canadians have beaten Pittsburgh and they must be given credit for that. However, we doubt the Tricolors will be able to perform as well in the upcoming series, especially in the opening meeting. The style of "Pilots" is fundamentally different, so we are waiting for their victory.
Our prediction is Philadelphia's victory for 2.21 at BC 1xBet.
