The Montreal Canadiens and the Vancouver Canucks will both be trying to pick up a win on Tuesday when they battle at Rogers Arena.

ABOUT THE CANADIENS (14-15-4): Although Weber has played in all six games this month, coach Claude Julien said the stud defenseman continued to be bothered by the injury. “It’s a long season, and it’s the type of injury that he couldn’t continue playing with,” Julien said. “We’ll manage it properly over the next couple of days and weeks.” Julien juggled his lines at Monday’s practice in an effort to jump-start the offense, reuniting captain Max Pacioretty with Jonathan Drouin and Paul Byron on the top line.

ABOUT THE CANUCKS (15-15-4): Vancouver may have dodged a serious injury when it was revealed the Boeser, who leads the team and all NHL rookies with 17 goals and 30 points, did not suffer a fracture. “It’s more of a bone bruise and more day-to-day than week-to-week for his return,” Canucks general manager Jim Benning said Monday. “It’s a relief. We can’t afford to lose a player like that.” Captain Henrik Sedin is mired in a 16-game goal-scoring drought, but he has been an assist machine with 16 over the last 14 games.

Oddsmakers opened the Canadiens as -125-moneyline favorites versus the Canucks, while the game’s total opened at 5.5.

The Montreal Canadiens will not be back on their home ice until 2018 and are without their top defenseman, hardly the ideal situation to reverse their current slump. The Canadiens, who have dropped four of five following a five-game winning streak, continue a seven-game road trip against the Vancouver Canucks on Tuesday night.

Both teams are struggling to produce offense — Montreal has nine goals in its last five games while the Canucks have scored 10 times during a 1-5-0 slide. Canadiens defenseman Shea Weber was sent back to Montreal to be re-evaluated for a foot injury that caused him to miss seven games last month. Vancouver is dealing with a rash of injuries, the latest to star rookie Brock Boeser, who will sit out Tuesday after hurting his foot in Sunday’s 6-1 drubbing by Calgary. The Canadiens have won three in a row versus the Canucks, but they have lost 13 of 16 (3-11-2) against Western Conference opponents and are 1-6-1 versus the Pacific Division this season.

Vancouver lost its last outing, a 6-1 result against the Flames on December 17. Bettors who backed the Flames at -108 on the moneyline won on the day, and the total score (7) sent OVER bettors to the payout window.

Last time out for Montreal, they were a 3-0 loser as they battled the Senators on the road. Moneyline bettors who got the Senators at +104 were rewarded, while the 3 combined goals moved the game UNDER for totals bettors.
