Brock Boeser leads Vancouver with seven goals, Elias Pettersson has 14 assists and Tanner Pearson has 37 shots on goal. Defensively, the Vancouver Canucks are allowing 2.4 goals per game and are killing 86.8 percent of their opponents power plays. Jacob Markstrom has given up 21 goals on 248 shots faced and Thatcher Demko has allowed seven goals on 119 shots. The Vancouver Canucks have allowed three or less goals in 12 of their first 13 games.

The Canucks are 6-0 in their last 6 vs. Western Conference, 4-1 in their last 5 road games and 20-6 in their last 26 games as a favorite. The Sharks are 11-5 in their last 16 Saturday games, 2-7 in their last 9 vs. Western Conference and 1-5 in their last 6 overall. The over is 8-1-2 in Canucks last 11 games as a favorite. The over is 9-2 in Sharks last 11 games playing on 0 days rest. The Canucks are 0-7 in the last 7 meetings in San Jose. The Canucks are 8-27 in the last 35 meetings. The home team is 8-2 in the last 10 meetings.

The San Jose Sharks have won eight of the last 10 meetings against the Canucks, but that's about the only reason to like them in this spot. The Sharks are a complete mess right now with a defense that gets blasted more times than not and an offense that lacks creativity or explosiveness. The Vancouver Canucks enter this game on fire and will run away with this game if that offense continues to pace it's been on out of the gate. I'll take the Canucks for a rare victory over the Sharks.
