Montreal Canadiens @ Vegas Golden Knights Live Stream & Tips


The Montreal Canadiens and the Vegas Golden Knights will face-off for game no.5 of their best-of-seven Stanley Cup semifinal series on Wednesday, June 23. On Sunday Vegas scored a 2-1 overtime win over Montreal to level the series at 2-2. The winner of this series will play the winner of the other semifinal between the Tampa Bay Lightning and the New York Islanders which is also all-square at 2-2.

Montreal went into this semifinal off the back of an impressive 4-0 whitewashing of the Winnipeg Jets. Meanwhile Vegas rebounded from a two game deficit to crush the much lauded Colorado Avalanche 4-2. Vegas got off to the better start in the semifinal, defeating Montreal 4-1 in the series opener. However the Canadiens hit back with successive 3-2 victories, before Vegas leveled the series with their overtime win on Sunday.

There is very little to separate these two teams, but I’m backing the Vegas Golden Knights to defeat the Montreal Canadiens narrowly on Wednesday and take a 3-2 series lead.

  • Vegas finished 2nd in NHL West Division 
  • Vegas finished 40-16 this season 
  • Montreal finished 4th in NHL North Division
  • Montreal finished 24-32 this season 

Head to Head


The Montreal Canadiens and the Vegas Golden Knights have faced each other just 10 times in regular-season games. The Montreal Canadiens currently lead this head-to-head by 7-3. These two teams played each other four times in 2021, with the score tied at 2-2. In their final game of the 2021 regular-season, the Golden Knights defeated the Canadiens 2-1.

Montreal Canadiens Form


The Montreal Canadiens have reached the NHL semifinals by scoring two very different series wins. In the first round, Montreal found themselves in a real dogfight with old rivals the Toronto Maple Leafs. Montreal took a 1-0 lead, only for Toronto to win the next three games, leaving themselves just one win away from the series victory and the second round.

The Montreal Canadians have won more Stanley Cups (24) than any other team, and they showed their resilience by taking the next two games in overtime, before winning the final match 3-1 and with it the series 4-3. The Canadians then crushed the Winnipeg Jets 4-0 in the second round. The Canadians are now taking on the Vegas Golden Knights in the Stanley Cups semifinals, with the series perfectly poised at 2-2.

Vegas Golden Knights Form


The Vegas Golden Knights finished the regular season second to the Colorado Avalanche in the NHL West Division with a record of 40 wins and 16 defeats. Colorado and Vegas also topped the NHL League as the best two teams in the competition during the regular season. 

Like the Montreal Canadiens, the Golden Knights only just scraped through their first round series by four games to three against the Minnesota Wilde. In the second round Vegas went 2-0 down against Colorado but hit back to win four games in a row and take the series 4-2. 

Remarkably, the Vegas Golden Knights have only been part of the NHL since 2017, yet they are already established as one of the biggest teams in the league. They reached the Stanley Cup finals in 2018, losing to the Washington Capitals, and are now just two games away from a second Stanley Cup final.

Verdict

The Stanley Cup semifinal between the Montreal Canadiens and the Vegas Golden Knights truly has it all; the greatest team in NHL history versus the Nouveau Riche Johnny-come-lately’s of professional ice hockey.

What’s more, this series is currently perfectly poised at 2-2. Can Montreal set themselves up for an incredible 25th Stanley Cup win? Can Vegas reach their second Stanley Cup final in their five year history, possibly becoming the youngest team to ever lift the trophy?

I’m backing the Golden Knights to defeat the Canadians on Wednesday based off the remarkable resilience they have displayed in their two previous series wins. I’m predicting Vegas will take this match by two clear goals in a game that will feature around six goals in total. I’m also picking Vegas forward William Karlsson as my anytime goalscorer, based off the four goals he has scored during the playoffs.
