Golden Knights vs Canucks Prediction

I’m on the Golden Knights here. I get why the Canucks are favored at home, but the Golden Knights were playing some of their best hockey of the season before their loss to Vancouver. I still think there’s work to be done for the Golden Knights. Vancouver’s still looking to lock up the division title, but with the added motivation and plus money that comes along with that, I think I have to roll with Vegas in this one with the plus odds.
