Line: Vancouver -160/Vegas +144

Total: 6

The Vancouver Canucks will take on the Vegas Golden Knights in a Pacific division battle Thursday night from the Rogers Arena. The Golden Knights are coming off a 8-2 road loss to the Oilers, and the Canucks edged the Kings by a 3-2 score in their previous action. 

Golden Knights Surrender Season-High Eight Goals

The Vegas Golden Knights conceded three goals in the first period in their rough 8-2 road loss to the Oilers on Tuesday night. They were badly outplayed and were outshot 32-23. David Perron collected another assist in the loss, and has now recorded seven points so far this month. The 29-year old left-winger is having a stellar season, netting five goals with ten assists on the season, and owns a plus two rating. James Neal scored for the second straight game in the loss to the Oilers. The nine-year veteran sniper has now tallied ten goals with four assists on the year. Neal has registered 14 points in 20 career games against the Canucks. The Golden Knights have dropped six out of their last eight games and have been on the road in all but one game during that stretch. They are having no problems finding the back of the net, averaging 3.5 goals per game, good for sixth in the NHL.

Vegas will likely have Maxime Lagace guard the cage in this contest. Lagace is the Knights fourth-string goaltender and is having some trouble, posting a 4.12 GAA and a 2-5-1 record. Marc-Andre Fleury remains out and Malcolm Subban is also injured. The Golden Knights are conceding an average of 2.9 goals per game, positioning them 13th overall.

Canucks Rally for Road Win in L.A.

The Vancouver Canucks erased an early two goal deficit in their 3-2 road win against the Kings on Tuesday night. Henrik Sedin had a solid night in the victory, potting one goal along with one assist. The 37-year old center is starting to heat up, collecting four points in his last five games, and has now notched seven points on the year. Bo Horvat found the back of the net for his seventh goal of the season in the win. The 22-year old center has been productive this month, recording seven points in his last six games, and is second in team scoring behind Brock Boeser with 14 points in 18 games. The Canucks snapped a two game skid with the win over the Kings, and are 5-4-1 in their last 10 games played. They are not a high scoring team, averaging only 2.6 goals per game, ranking them 28th in the NHL.

The Canucks will likely turn to Jacob Markstrom in this matchup. Markstrom has been mediocre, registering a 2.51 GAA and a .913 save percentage along with a 5-6-2 record. Vancouver is playing well defensively, and are conceding an average of 2.6 goals per game, good for sixth in the NHL.

Trends:

The Vegas Golden Knights are:

  • over is 8-2 in their last 10 games overall.
  • over is 6-1 in their last 7 games when their opponent allows two or fewer goals in their previous game.
  • over is 4-0 in their last 4 games against the Western Conference.

The Vancouver Canucks are:

  • over is 4-1 in their last 5 Thursday games.

I am taking the over in this contest. The Golden Knights have been using their fourth string goaltender Maxime Lagace, and he owns a poor 4.12 GAA. He might not play in this contest and the Golden Knights could be forced to use Dylan Ferguson who was playing junior hockey before he was recalled, so I expect the Canucks to find the back of the net multiple times. Furthermore, the Golden Knights are allowing an average of 3.7 goals in their last 10 games. Vegas has also been productive offensively and the over has been a very common trend in their games.
