Tuesday NHL action features the Detroit Red Wings hosting the Vancouver Canucks.

The Vancouver Canucks hope to extend their winning streak to four games after downing visiting Colorado 7-6 in OT on Friday. Nathan MacKinnon scored twice for the Avalanche with Sheldon Dries, Ian Cole, Alexander Kerfoot and Nikita Zadorov all reaching the scoring column. Philipp Gubauer allowed all seven goals on 37 shots to fall to 3-1-1 for Colorado.

Elias Patterson and Brock Boeser led the Canucks offensive explosion with two goals each while Loui Eriksson and Markus Grandlund scored in regulation. Derrick Pouiliot tallied in overtime to secure the two points for Vancouver who received 23 saves from Jacob Markstrom.

The Detroit Red Wings have been trying to dig themselves out of an early season hole and were doing just that until a 4-3 loss to Edmonton ended a three game winning streak. Jacob De La Rose, Danny DeKeyser and Tyler Bertuzzi scored for Detroit with Jonathan Bernier giving up four goals on 42 shots to get the loss.

Kyle Brodziak topped the Oilers offense with a pair of goals with Drake Caggiula and Alex Chiasson also reaching the scoring column. Jujhar Khaira and Connor McDavid posted two assists each and Edmonton received 23 saves from Mikko Koskinen.

Under is 7-0 in Canucks last 7 road games vs. a team with a home winning % of less than .400 and Canucks are 4-0 in their last 4 vs. Atlantic and over is 5-1-1 in Canucks last 7 after scoring 5 goals or more in their previous game. Over is 3-0-1 in Red Wings last 4 overall and over is 6-0-1 in Red Wings last 7 when their opponent scores 5 goals or more in their previous game and over is 5-0 in Red Wings last 5 Tuesday games. Under is 3-0-1 in the last 4 meetings and road team is 5-1 in the last 6 meetings and Canucks are 3-7 in the last 10 meetings. 

This looks like the proverbial tossup but both teams have been sharp offensively so something on the over…

I have been a sports fan since I was old enough to pick up a ball and have always been drawn to competition. I don't participate in sporting events any longer but I do like to provide my opinion on games and writing gives me that outlet. I won't always be right but I always put 100% in to every article I do whether it's the World Series or an 0-10 college football team. Mitch shares that same passion and allows me to express myself in my own way.
