The Vancouver Canucks look for a win after splitting their last eight games. The Canucks are averaging 2.8 goals per game and have scored seven goals in their last three games. The Vancouver Canucks have two power play goals in their last four games and have won five of their last six when scoring at least three goals. Radim Vrbata leads the Canucks with 25 goals, Henrik Sedin has 45 assists and Shawn Matthias has 116 shots on goal. Defensively, the Canucks are allowing 2.7 goals per game and haven’t allowed a power play goal in five of their last seven games. Ryan Miller has allowed 102 goals on 1,170 shots faced and Eddie Lack has given up 60 goals on 733 shots.
The Ducks are 5-0 in their last 5 road games and 70-32 in their last 102 vs. Western Conference. The Canucks are 4-1 in their last 5 home games and 3-8 in their last 11 games following a win. The Ducks are 18-6 in the last 24 meetings in Vancouver and 9-1 in the last 10 meetings overall.
The Ducks have owned the Canucks for quite some time, and the Canucks haven't had much luck recently winning back-to-back games. I like the road team for the cheap price.
