The Montreal Canadiens will look to keep their winning ways on Tuesday when the Pittsburgh Penguins at the visitors to the Bell Centre.

Six victories in a row have the Canadiens atop the Atlantic Division with the best record in the league ahead of a surging Tampa Bay Lightning.

However the Buffalo Sabres, Minnesota Wild, Winnipeg Jets, Boston Bruins, Philadelphia Flyers and Detroit Red Wings are not the Penguins who sit second in the league in goals per game behind the aforementioned Lightning.

Tampa Bay and Pittsburgh are also the only two sides who have more than a one goal difference between their goals scored and those conceded.

Monday the Lightning knocked five past the Rangers at Madison Square Garden in New York.

Ryan Callahan scored twice on his first return to face his old club with Martin St. Louis, the player he was traded for, striking for the Rangers only goal.

Nikita Kucherov, Steven Stamkos and Alex Killorn were also on target for the visitors who carry on to the Nassau Coliseum on Tuesday to play the New York Islanders.

Tuesday the St. Louis Blues look to consolidate their lead in the Central Division when they visit the Bruins at the TD Garden in Boston.

It’s the first contest of a four-game road swing for the Blues that also takes in Montreal, Ottawa and Winnipeg as St. Louis battles the Nashville Predators for the top spot in the Division.

Nashville visits Toronto to face the Maple Leafs before also traveling to play the Senators.

The Canadiens areĀ 13.00 to win the Stanley Cup, with the Red Wings 31.00.
