Canadiens vs Bruins
The Bruins beefed up their lineup for one last run at the Stanley Cup, trading three premium draft picks to the Ducks for Hampus Lindholm. However, neither the defenseman or captain Patrice Bergeron are expected in the lineup on Monday night. Montreal has improved under new head coach Martin St. Louis, with a 5-3-2 record in their last 10, while Boston has been one of the best teams in the NHL since the New Year. The B’s have outscored the Habs 10-3 in two previous meetings this season and will emerge victorious in this one as well.
Final score prediction: Bruins 3, Canadiens 2

Wild vs Golden Knights
The Golden Knights finally righted the ship after a five-game losing streak, picking up consecutive home Ws against Florida and Los Angeles. Following an injury scare versus the Panthers, Jack Eichel unexpectedly returned to the lineup to face the Kings. He now has 11 points in 16 games with Vegas this season. Meanwhile, Minnesota is riding back-to-back wins of their own. The Wild acquired bruising forward Nicolas Deslaurier from the Ducks at the deadline and could be a tough out for someone this postseason.
Final score prediction: Wild 4, Golden Knights 2
Avalanche vs Oilers
Edmonton takes a five-game win streak into Colorado on Monday to face the league-leading Avalanche, who have racked up three consecutive victories. Jared Bednar’s club lost out on Claude Giroux at the deadline but added gritty blueliner, Josh Manson, from Anaheim. Expect Connor McDavid and the Oilers to approach this one as a measuring stick game. While the club’s last three wins were against non-playoff teams (Devils, Sabres, Red Wings), they did begin their streak with triumphs over the Capitals and Lightning.
Final score prediction: Edmonton 5, Colorado 4 OT
With a goal and two assists today, #Oilers Connor McDavid recorded his league-leading 90th point of the season!
McDavid became the first player to record six consecutive 90-point seasons since Jaromir Jagr from 1995-96 through 2000-01! #LetsGoOilers pic.twitter.com/NuTIc7vIPp

Ducks vs Predators
No general manager was busier at the deadline than Anaheim’s Pat Verbeek, who shipped out Lindholm, Deslaurier, and Manson among others. In the midst of a six-game losing streak, the Ducks have clearly hit the rebuild switch. Nashville is locked in the first Wild Card spot in the West after picking up three wins against the solid competition (Leafs, Penguins, Wild) in their past four games. Led by Roman Josi, whose 75 points tops all NHL defensemen, the Predators should have no trouble knocking off the spiraling Ducks.
Final score prediction: Predators 5, Ducks 1
