The Vancouver Canucks could use a big home win after losing 10 of their last 12 games. The Canucks are averaging two goals per game and are scoring on 10.2 percent of their power play opportunities. Henrik Sedin leads Vancouver with five goals, Daniel Sedin has four assists and Bo Horvat has 22 shots on goal.

The Rangers are 4-1 in their last 5 road games and 7-1 in their last 8 overall. The Canucks are 7-3 in their last 10 home games and 1-7 in their last 8 vs. Eastern Conference. The under is 6-1 in the last 7 meetings in Vancouver and the over is 3-1-1 in the last 5 meetings overall.
This price is actually fairly low considering the Canucks are struggling big time right now and consistently allow three or more goals. Meanwhile, the Rangers have been one of the better teams in the league and have been an offensive machine. Things could get ugly against this Vancouver defense. Give me the New York Rangers on the road.
