This looks like a solid line and good game to take a risk. Montreal is cold and Dallas is hot after defeating Detroit in overtime on Sunday. The Canadiens are coming off a disappointing 3-2 loss in Colorado on Sunday night.

Sniper Mike Cammalleri had a power play goal as did Alexandre Picard but the Habs failed to take advantage of opportunities in the third period. The second and third line players failed to produce points and ended up minus two for the contest. Tomas Plekanec is the team leader in points with 28 while Cammalleri leads in goals with just 12.
