Minnesota Wild vs. Montreal Canadiens

Canadiens Money Line! 

Minnesota is off to a bad start with just one win through six games. The lone win was a 2-0 victory against a bad Ottawa team but the reason for losing is pretty simple, they have given up at least four goals in every other game. The scoring has been light too as Minnesota has scored more than two goals only once all season. That might be OK for this one if they can get the goal prevention right. It is hard to have much confidence in them right now. Montreal is not doing a ton better at 2-2-1-1. They started with three on the road and then they had three at home, they have only won one of them though. Carey Price is the guy they need to be better for the Habs. There is no way this team competes with just mediocre goaltending. This can be a spot where he tries to find his groove this season.
