The fans at Bell Centre will be treated to a game between the Chicago Blackhawks and the Montreal Canadiens when they take their seats on Tuesday.

ABOUT THE BLACKHAWKS (2-0-1): Rutta’s NHL career has gotten off to a strong start as the 27-year-old Czech has notched at least one point in each of his first three games. He also has posted a plus-7 rating, which ties him with captain Jonathan Toews for first on the team. Brandon Saad, who tops the club with four goals, notched an assist Monday to pull even with Ryan Hartman and Patrick Kane for the team lead of six points.

ABOUT THE CANADIENS (1-2-0): Scoring on Sunday just wasn’t in the cards for Montreal, which had a pair of apparent goals waved off after video reviews in the first period. Andrew Shaw was ruled to have used a kicking motion to score on the first, while captain Max Pacioretty’s goal was overturned due to goaltender interference. Defenseman Shea Weber, who leads the team with 12 hits and seven blocked shots, is the only member of the club with a positive plus/minus rating (plus-1).

Oddsmakers opened the Blackhawks as -111-moneyline favorites versus the Canadiens, while the game’s total opened at 5.5.

The Montreal Canadiens hope to get their offense in gear Tuesday as they face off against the Chicago Blackhawks in their home opener. Montreal scored a total of three goals during its season-opening three-game road trip, which concluded Sunday with a 2-0 loss to the New York Rangers.

Brendan Gallagher is the only member of the Canadiens with multiple points while he and Phillip Danault each have scored a short-handed goal. Chicago was on the way to its third straight win to start the season Monday before squandering a two-goal lead in the latter half of the third period and dropping a 4-3 decision in overtime at Toronto. Defenseman Jan Rutta and Richard Panik recorded a goal and an assist apiece, with the latter’s tally being just the second of the Blackhawks’ 18 this season scored on the power play. Panik, who recorded a career-high 22 goals last campaign, is one off the team lead in both tallies (three) and points (five).

The Canadiens were a 2-0 loser in their most recent outing on the road against the Rangers. That made winners of bettors who got New York at -118 on the moneyline, while the total score (2) was good news for UNDER bettors.

Chicago lost its last outing, a 4-3 result against the Maple Leafs on October 09. Bettors who backed the Maple Leafs at -157 on the moneyline won on the day, and the total score (7) sent OVER bettors to the payout window.
